Our Committee

Meet the RUSS Team

Alec Lutrov


Meet El Presidente', Alec, formally known within the club as "Muscle Tee Guy". When he's not DJing, you can often catch him boarding down the mountain attempting stuff his skill levels don't allow him to do, or yelling "just send it" too loudly at inappropriate times.

He loves an ice cold furph, a steamy hot spa session and an eye fillet, cooked rare with some delicious pepper gravy drizzled over the top.

If you have any questions throughout the year, don't be afraid to ask anyone else in the committee, except Alec, as he often can't be stuffed with your nonsense.

Just send it!

Emily Buckland

Vice President

This fine specimen is Em, your VP for 2019! She's some what of a RUSS veteran and she literally lives and breathes everything about the snow so you're in safe hands. She's been skiing since before she could remember and has been on race skis since age 10. You could say she knows a thing or two about a thing or two when it comes to going #fast.

She's also this year's Snow Nationals (formerly Uni Games) team manager so hit her up if you're keen as a bean to represent the best Uni on the slopes.

Em's looking forward to getting to know y'all!

Yeah nah nah nah, I'll meet you at the bottom!

Mackenzie Pettit


Introducing the club’s money man, MacKenzie, the 2019 treasurer. You’ll find him lapping the park all day, probably trying to throw down tricks and hit features that are way out of his skill level.

He loves everything about the snow and snowboarding, whether that’s park, groomers or backcountry. If he’s not out riding with his RUSS pals, he will be studying Finance and Chinese at RMIT or watching the latest boarding edit.

This is Mackenzie's fourth year with RUSS, and he can’t wait to meet all the new members and shred with the club!

See you in the park!

Nick Campbell


This cooked unit is your club secretary, Nick. On mountain he’s usually the one sending it down the slopes with the big camera, or running trails when any sane person would be hitting the spa.

Apart from joining all you lunatics up at the snow, he handles the back room paper pushing that keeps the club running smoothly.

Looks like a green run to me!

Erin Reardon

Events Coordinator

Meet our Events Coordinator Erin!

She’d never seen snow when she first joined RUSS. She’s now four years deep, still can’t ski but will probably out drink you at any RUSS event.

To ski or to apres-ski.

Harrison Costello

Media Manager

Meet Harrsion, RUSS's most handsome committee member!

His hobbies include long walks on the beach, verbal jousting and causing a scene. When he’s not climbing mountains or crossing continents across the globe, you’ll find him on his favourite runs at Mt Hotham. Incapable of saying no to a challenge, you’ll rarely see him without a smile on his face.
