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
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
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
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
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
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
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

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
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.
