To date, Welcome Winter has

  • Funded gates, start ramps, timing shacks, hardware, software, coaches' coats, video equipment and vans as well as furniture, shelving and flooring for the Jason Harper Training Center
  • Helped BBSEF grow into a program that offers development opportunities for competitive skiers and snowboarders ages six to 199; from Mitey Mite to high school, to USSA, FIS and Masters competitors

Best of all, Welcome Winter makes it possible for BBSEF athletes to apply the discipline of sport to success as Olympians, scholars and leaders in their communities.

Together, we build healthy communities through competition.
