Program Director Mark Wedeking Shredding Into Retirement


BBSEF Families, Coaches and Friends,

Please join us in celebrating Mark Wedeking’s 24 years with BBSEF. Mark has announced his retirement from the ski industry. His last day with BBSEF will be April 30, 2021.

During his 24 years with BBSEF, Mark has worked tirelessly to put smiles on kids' faces, while sharing his love of our sport.  Throughout the years Mark has been instrumental in elevating BBSEF’s standing with US Ski and Snowboard as well as the Intermountain Division. While we will miss Mark’s guidance, he has worked diligently to ensure BBSEF’s continuing success.

BBSEF is hosting an open house retirement party for Mark on Friday, April 30.  Lolita’s Tacos will be serving up their taco truck favorites from 1-4 pm.  We will be celebrating outside the BBSEF office on Hill Rd.  We hope you will stop by and wish Mark well as he starts his new adventures, putting smiles on his own kids' faces.

Senior Feature – Madaline S.

Capital High School

When Madaline was just three years old, her dad – a lifelong skier – introduced her to the slopes for the first time. It was not long before her need for speed emerged, prompting an early withdrawal from ski school group lessons. “I had to wait and slow down for the other kids, so my dad took me out and taught me to ski himself!” said Madaline.

Madaline joined BBSEF Mitey Mites at age 6 and continued to build on her strength and speed through the North Series and Alpine Competitive Team (ACT) programs. She racked up points in Slalom, GS, and Super G races throughout the Intermountain Division and went on to compete at Western Regional Championships in Alaska. Leaving no stone unturned, Madaline raced FIS last year.

“I have many favorite memories,” Madaline said, “but a big one was moving up from North Series to ACT and getting to a whole other level of ski racing. It became more competitive, and I loved the new level of coaching and new friendships I made.”

Madaline’s favorite activities off the slopes include ultimate frisbee, working out at the gym, and hanging with her friends. She also likes to crochet and bake.

Madaline will head to the University of Utah in the fall to pursue a major in the medical field. “Along with being on the club ski team,” she said.

When asked what she would tell her 6-year-old self about life on skis, Madeline offered this: “I would tell myself then and now to cherish every moment on skis because you never know how long it will last.”

Congratulations Madeline. Here’s to a lifetime of carving those speedy turns!
