BSA Merit Badge counselors will be on hand to evaluate Scouts and help them work towards Merit Badges. To participate, Scouts must bring their Snow Sports Merit Badge workbook and Blue Cards. Scouts are expected to have mastered the material in the Snow Sports Merit Badge pamphlet, not just fill out a worksheet. Scouts who have not skied or snowboarded before should not expect to pass the skills portion of the merit badge in one day, but can earn a partial blue card.

Information Sheet


Prepaid Reservations are required.

All Scouts participating in the event receive discounted lift tickets, lessons, and rentals. Attending family members are also eligible for special pricing with no minimum requirement of participants to qualify.

Online Resources to Help Your Family With Disaster Preparedness ...  Is your family prepared for a potential disaster.  Here are some online resources that you can use to help prepare your household and workplace for disaster. The recent earthquakes and tsunami in Japan were a reminder of how important it is to make sure your family is prepared for disasters. Every family should be prepared with enough food, water, medical supplies, batteries, and other survival equipment to be completely self-sufficient for at least 72 hours in case of a major disaster.
