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.

Congratulations Ryan Herhusky for winning the 2019 Name that Drill Contest. Ryan, pictured left and in course, is a U16 from Sugar Bowl Academy. He earned the right to name a drill through a 2nd place podium finish in Slalom. The race was at Proctor Ski Area in NH December 31, 2018.
Ryan came to the Snow Biste during the summer training sessions, and since has had the best season of his race career with several podiums and top tens. Ryan is the second Biste student to have a Method drill named after him, following Tea Kiesel a U16 who won the contest in 2018. To win you need to be the first Snow Biste student to earn a podium finish during the season.
Congratulations Ryan Herhusky for all your hard work and dedication to the sport!

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

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
We tried out this endless ski slope a few weeks ago and it was fantastic. It was the next best thing to being on snow and in one session I felt like I worked out this weird right leg under edging thing I could not put my finger on all winter. ‘Their’ alpine race watches and instructs, it’s very int… 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.
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
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
If anyone is looking to improve their skiing skills (or just learn to ski!), I highly recommend reaching out to Kris Buttenberg at Biste Technologies, LLC in Reno! Training on the Biste system was invaluable to Emma, not only as she worked to return to snow from her knee injury, but also to really g… 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
