All of our BBSEF programs are well under way and we will soon begin hosting competitions at Bogus Basin. We ask each of our BBSEF families to volunteer for at least two event days. You can volunteer for any event, it does not have to be one that your athlete is participating in. If you were not able to fulfill you volunteer shifts at the ski swap this you opportunity make that up by volunteering an extra day or two. Below is information on our volunteer opportunities and the link to the volunteer (you can also volunteer by clicking on the volunteering under the home tab at www.bbsef.org)
Our BBSEF Coaches Cup home team events are January 24th, February 20th, March 5th & 6th. The Coaches Cup events are for our Snowboard home, Freeski home, Mitey Mite and Devo Team members. These events will be held in the Bitterroot basin. Most positions will be able to watch the competition. There are volunteer positions for skiers/snowboarders and non-skiers/snowboarders.
Cranston Cup North Series Slalom Race, February 6th & 7th: This event is open to Intermountain Division USSA licensed North Series Racers. The race will be held on the front side, off of the Deerpoint chair.
Trudi Bolinder Memorial Super G, February 26th-28th: We need volunteers from all of our BBSEF Teams to host this event.If you didn’t work the ski swap this is the time to make up for that and volunteer for at least one day during this event. This event is open to U16-FIS athletes from the Intermountain Division. This is great event to help with as you will have the opportunity to watch the Intermountain Division top racers in action. In some cases it works better to volunteer for events your child is not participating so you can enjoy watching their events. Volunteers for this event can receive a lift ticket for the day they volunteer and another lift ticket to use or give a for someone else to use during the 15.16 ski season.
The 7th annual Michael B. Young, Big Mountain competition is scheduled for March 12th & 13th: This is a Big Mountain event and is geared to our U12(10 years) and older, Freeski and Snowboard Home and Travel, Alpine Comp Team and older Devo Team members. This is also a really fun event to volunteer for, as you can watch competitors from Idaho and Utah throw down some great tricks.

PARK CITY, UT (Jan. 6, 2016) - Six young Americans have been nominated to the freeskiing team slated to compete in the 2016 Winter Youth Olympic Games in Lillehammer, Norway February 12-21. The International Olympic Committee’s Youth Olympic Games offers a competitive venue for young athletes to not only compete, but also participate in a Learn & Share program designed to inspire and empower youth.
The 2016 U.S. Youth Olympic Team will be formally named by the United States Olympic Committee in late January.
Leading the 2016 U.S. freeskiing team are Birk Irving (Winter Park, CO), who will be competing in halfpipe and Alex Hall (Salt Lake City, UT), who will be a contender in slopestyle.Modeled after the Olympic Games, the Youth Olympic Games debuted its winter event in 2012 at Innsbruck, Austria. Held every four years, the Winter Youth Olympic Games will feature over 1,100 athletes, aged 15 to 18, from around the world. Freeskiing events will include halfpipe, slopestyle and skicross.
Coupled with the competition, the Learn & Share program will offer young athletes the opportunity to become ambassadors of their sport through workshops and exercises based around five major themes: Olympism, Social Responsibility, Skills Development, Expression and Well-Being and Healthy Lifestyles.
