Bucknell University Ski Team (BUST)
The Bucknell University Ski Team (BUST) is comprised of a group of athletically inclined men and women who enjoy both the competitive and social aspects of ski racing. Our 6-week season takes us all over the region, from West Virginia to up state New York (see schedule page for more details), where we compete against schools such as Penn State, Villanova, U Penn, and The Naval Academy. The weekends spent traveling with the team are a great way to get off campus with a good group of people who share similar interests. Whether you come for one weekend or all six, you are guaranteed to experience an aspect of Bucknell that is not attainable elsewhere.The BUST family, maintained for over thirty years, welcomes new members with or without previous racing experience. Based upon the annual funding our organization receives from the school, dues are calculated in order to provide enjoyment above and beyond members' expectations. The team budget covers all six weekend's lift tickets, lodging, and travel expenses and makes our sport much less expensive for the individual. Every Thursday night the team gets together for a ski tuning/social event where refreshments are provided. This tuning session helps us get mentally and physically prepared for the coming race.We also like to bowl at the wonderful Imperial Lanes. We like it a lot.
