“I can’t wait for Sunday,” said Corbin Kuntze, a junior on the Boston University Snowboard team. “We’re finally going snowboarding!”
BUST members will wake-up bright and early, (around 5 a.m.), jump on a bus, and head to Okemo for a day of snowboarding.
Here’s some alumni tips from former BUST President Alexa Fernandez to help ensure a shred-tastic day at Okemo.
Tip #1: Set multiple alarms. The bus leaves each spot at 5:15, 5:30, and 5:45 a.m., respectively.
Tip #2: Pack gear the night before. It may be hard to remember to bring gloves, hats, socks, hand warmers, sweatshirts, scarves, boots, boards, tools, and snacks at 5 a.m.
Tip #3: Sleep on the bus. The ride provides an extra three hours of snooze time.
Tip #4: There’s a Waffle hut, so bring cash if you find it hard to resist that warm, sugary aroma.
Tip #5: Have fun snowboarding with BUST friends!
Fernandez also said her favorite song to listen to while snowboarding is ‘Punching in a Dream” by naked and Famous.
