2012/2013 FNST-Lummi

 

 

 

 

The 2012/2013 season got off to a slow start this year. We are thankful for the support that we get from the Mt. Baker Ski Area each season. This year is no different. The relationship we have with the good folks at Mt. Baker is ever evolving and we appreciate all of it. Please check out our latest video of one March day on Baker. These Lummi youth can really carve it up and we are in awe of their stories that they can tell of the their progression on the slopes. They have a sense of renewed confidence each day we are up there. They come back hungry for more, looking to out-do what they did the last time they were up on the mountain. These powder hounds are always looking for that fresh bed of powder to slice through and leave their mark. Thank you to all who support the First Nation Snowboard Team from Lummi. These athletes of today are going to be our leaders tomorrow.

2012 SOS Outreach/Lummi Youth Learn to Ride Program

 

The SOS Outreach/Lummi Youth Learn to Ride Program is underway. We have 13 Lummi youth who are participating this year. For their first trip they were able to go out and hike around at Mt. Baker. For the month of March they will be getting snowboard lessons from great volunteer instructors who love to be up there with the kids. We want to thank Dylan Rees, Rob Gray, Bethany Moses and the rest of the SOS Outreach for providing this opportunity. We want to thank the Mt. Baker Ski Area for the support of the Lummi youth and the SOS Outreach program. We also want to thank our co-sponsors at the Lummi Employee Traing Center program.

2010-2011 FNST-XWLEMI

This is our year one as a part of the First Nations Snowboarding Team. (www.fnriders.com). We are very excited about this huge family of Native Snowboarders that we have joined as well as the potential that this program has and the good that it will do for the Lummi Nation youth who want to be a part of the team. Snowboarding is a sport that's not easy to learn. Once a person learns how to ride and be able to enjoy being strapped with both feet to a board, the sky is the limit. It is a great self-esteem boost once a person can conquer what it takes to ride a snowboard. It is also a great sense of well-being for our Native people to get reaquainted with the mountain again. Whether it is Mt. Baker or Stevens Pass or even Whistler/Blackcomb, it is a great experience to be up in that elevation. We will be sure to keep you all updated on the progress that our Lummi riders make throughout the season, post many pictures and let you know about becoming a part of the family for the 2011/2012 season.

We have learned a great deal this first year. We know that this season of snowboarding is a big commitment for all involved, and this can be very taxing especially when other activities for our youth are involved. We are looking forward to the upcoming season and hope to have a few new people on the team that are eager and willing to learn and be a team member and who will bring some fresh energy to our team. This program has great potential to bring out the competitiveness of our youth, it's going to give to them what they put into it. A rider can stay at the Rec level or strive to progress to becoming a high performance team member.

We want to thank Aaron Marchant and Lindsay Baker Hubley of Squamish, BC and Saundra Wagner and Vicki Hill of Tulalip for making this all possible for bringing FNST to Lummi.

We also want to thank our local businesses for helping us along the way, WWS Boardshop, Yeager's Sporting Goods, INNATE, and REI of Bellingham, and especially want to thank the Mt. Baker Ski Area for their support.

SOS OUTREACH PROGRAM AND LUMMI NATION YOUTH

We plan on participating in the SOS Outreach program with Lummi Nation youth again on a limited spot basis. Last year was a huge success in the fact that we were able to get 25-30 youth on Mt. Baker at a limited cost to the programs involved. The YESS dept, LSOC, Lummi Youth Academy and Lummi Youth Recreation worked together to get our youth up to the mountain successfully for 5 consecutive weekends from March 7th to April 4th. Each youth learned how to snowboard around Chairs 2 and 7 and also hiked in snowshoes from the lodge up to Artist Point.

This year, SOS and Lummi Nation will again partner up to bring Lummi youth to Mt. Baker. This year's activities will be one day of rock wall climbing at the YMCA (2/27), one day of snowshoeing at Mt. Baker (3/6) and three days of snowboarding at Mt. Baker (3/13, 3/20, 3/27).

Please check here for latest on SOS Outreach and Lummi Youth on Mt. Baker.
