Just before the USSA shut down ski racing and all ski areas closed due to the COVID-19 the USSA Masters were able to complete one of the four National ski races in Colorado, a Super G. Kris Buttenberg garnered first place in class!
November 2019 – Biste Technologies announces that they are taking the Biste Method of teaching to the highest non-professional level by representing the United States at the Winter World Masters Games! Winter World Masters Games are just like the Winter Olympics with opening and closing ceremonies and all the Winter Olympic events but theydon’t happen as frequently. The elephant in the room, the competitors are 30yrs and older. That means we have a whole lot of experience, so don’t think for a New York minute these games aren’t competitive. WWMG 2020 is the highest level of competition available for non-professional winter athletes. Competitors include those who have maintained high levels of fitness and skill in their respective sports beyond the age of 30. These athletes compete as representatives for 55 countries. Not only do these athletes compete at the highest non-professional levels, they will also be demonstrating the highest levels of integrity and professionalism in the sports they have represented their entire lifetime.

Kris Buttenberg, at Biste Technologies, has invented a truly one-of-a-kind experience in South Reno. It’s as close to skiing as you can get in the heat of a Nevada summer and we are working with him to provide access to SBA athletes over the summer. The machine demands ankle flexion and the activa… Read more

I truly appreciated having the fastest skier on the hill take time out to assist me with learning how to prepare for the race. I’m very optimistic that we’ll continue to clear up the items we’ve been working on and I’ll be quite a bit faster racing.
My wife and I saw the article on Biste in the RGJ. We had plateaued in our skiing ability — basically being stuck at the “Advanced-minus” level for the last several years. We were ready and eager to take it to the next level. We had tried “on the mountain” lessons but were frustrated that in a one-h… Read more
Working with Kris on the ski desk was by far the best ski learning experience I’ve had. He obviously really knows his stuff and is able to communicate it well. Skiing on the deck gave me much more intense practice and with him right there watching, he could see exactly what I was doing when and coul… Read more
So so Happy! I’m getting it! Spent time going down Kit Carson yesterday and I could actually feel the skills, and could go back and forth many many times over(not just three!) I was swooshing and it felt natural, secondary! My hubby even said I finally looked relaxed while skiing correctly! Brian is… Read more
I have been skiing for four years, but have not been very confident. I signed up for lessons with Kris to address skill, control, and safe form. I have only had one lesson so far and I can’t believe the improvement! I already feel like I have a great deal more control on the slopes. Plus, I’m no… Read more
The classes helped immensely!! Kellen and the twins were as good as other kids who had been skiing many more days before them this year, so it was fantastic that they could just dive right in and be at the same level. Exactly what I wanted.
Kris Buttenberg is a fabulous ski instructor.
He is friendly and professional, and excellent at helping me progress quickly with fun and challenging lesson plans.
He built a wonderful “Biste,” an inclined treadmill that makes it possible to ski and learn faster, even during the off season. I h… Read more
