Have you ever wanted to watch some snowboarding while simultaneously looking at Fenway Park? Snowriders is here to make it happen.
If you haven’t heard of the Snowriders, you should definitely check them out – they’re three brothers who also happen to be BUST alum and really like us, which only happens when you were once one of us. So because they love snowboarding, and Boston, they’re bringing us a rail jam right in our back yard. Here’s the skinny:
WHAT: Snowriders Urban Sessions – Boston
WHEN: Saturday November 23 7pm-2am
WHERE: Who’s On First by Fenway
HOW: the event is 21+ (sorry kiddos), tickets are on sale now
MORE INFO: https://www.facebook.com/events/737779426251352/
So maybe you can watch some stellar riding and enjoy some beverages – but buy a ticket ahead of time and you get a free lift ticket to your choice of Killington, Okemo, Pico, or Sunapee (sounds a lot like our pass, huh?)…AND they’re giving away tons of free swag and chances to win some new gear – trust us, they always deliver.
You won’t want to miss this Winter Kickoff Party. And of course, you can find some of your fellow BUSTies there, so if you’re looking for someone to have a blast with, don’t be shy!
Wondering why Kevin Pearce and Lucy Walker are going to be at BU on Thursday? BUST is teaming up with HBO, Society of Professional Journalists, BU’s really great brain research program, and a whole bunch of others for the screening of HBO’s Crash Reel.
Directed by two-time Academy Award nominee Lucy Walker, this HBO documentary tells the story of an escalating rivalry between snowboarders Kevin Pearce and his nemesis Shaun White in the run-up to the 2010 Olympics that leaves Shaun on top of the Olympic podium and Kevin in a coma following a training accident in Park City, Utah. Kevin’s tight-knit Vermont family flies to his side and helps him rebuild his life as a brain injury survivor. But when he insists he wants to return to the sport he still loves, his family intervenes with his eloquent brother David speaking for all of them when he says, “I just don’t want you to die.” Kevin’s doctors caution him that even a small blow to the head could be enough to kill him. Will Kevin defy them and insist on pursuing his passion? With his now impaired skills, what other options does he have? How much risk is too much?
Lucy Walker, Kevin Pearce, and Dan Daneshvar, a postdoctoral researcher in behavioral neuroscience at the BU School of Medicine, will be in attendance. They will hold a Q&A after the event fielding questions from the audience about the film, the experience, and BU’s involvement in the strides that have been made in the Traumatic Brain Injury field.
Location: Boston University Law Auditorium
Time: Thursday, Nov. 14th @ 6-9pm

Welcome back to Boston! We hope you had a stellar break. Let’s hang out this Tuesday, Jan. 12 at Barnes & Noble from 10am-7pm. We’re having a fundraiser for the team. Here’s what we’ll be doing: first of all, we’ll be on the floor where you pick up your preordered textbooks. We just meet people, look at a spreadsheet for a box number and then go in the back room and get the box and give it to the person. It’s super easy and last year we had fun chillin with each other. If you could give us a couple hours of your time, that would be fantastic.
Email us back with when you can come or get on our facebook event. If you can come all day, that’s great!
Wear comfy shoes and clothes because we’ll be on our feet.
