An Eastern Massachusetts Buddy Werner League Team

Welcome to the Bogastow Team

Current Practice Status: THINK SNOW!

The Bogastow Ski Team welcomes new members: The team gives young skiers of all ages an opportunity to train and compete in slalom and giant slalom courses against skiers from other local clubs.  Bogastow competes in the Eastern Massachusetts Buddy Werner League.  No prior race experience is required; however, skiers must be able to get on and off a chair lift unassisted and ski all terrain at Nashoba Valley competently.

The 7 & under race course is gentle with the emphasis on fun.  The 8 & older skiers compete on more competitive courses with the emphasis on improving skills and successful course completion.

RacerWhere and when…

The team trains at Nashoba Valley in Westford on Wednesdays from 6:00-8:00 p.m., mid-December through February. 

Races are held on seven Sunday mornings in January, February and March.  Races are held at Nashoba, Ski Ward in Shrewsbury, Bradford in Andover, Blue Hills in Canton and Wachusett in Princeton.  Racers are not obligated to attend every practice or race, but must attend at least three races to compete in the Championship Race. 

Bogastow is a parent-volunteer run organization.  In order to make our team and race days run successfully, parents of all skiers are expected to volunteer on race days.

Skiers compete in age groups based on their age as of December 31, 2014.  The age groups are 7 & under (U8), 8-9 (U10), 10-11 (U12), 12-13 (U14), 14-15 (U16), and 16-18 (U18)

Registration deadline 12/15/2014.

Registrations submitted after 12/15/2014 will be accepted based on availability and will require payment of a $25 late fee

Fun Stuff…J5-J4 Girls having fun

In recent years, skiers from Dover, Sherborn, Dedham, Weston, Westwood and surrounding towns have raced for the team with some qualifying for additional post-season championship races.

Ribbons are awarded to the top 10 finishers in each age group at every race. Trophies are awarded to the top 10 finishers at the Trophy Race and at the Championship Race. Skiers are also recognized for their individual achievements and contribution to the team at our annual banquet.
