For more than 50 years the annual BBSEF Spring Rose Sale has helped us replace and upgrade equipment while spreading cheer throughout the Treasure Valley. We are not going to let COVID put the kybosh on this tradition. In fact, we are adding a new option to cheer up folks who have had it particularly rough this year. Buyers and sellers will be able to fund roses for local veterans.
2021 Rose Sellers and Buyers Can:
Sell roses to friends, family and colleagues
Purchase roses to be delivered by BBSEF staff to the Idaho State Veteran’s home
No spring in your step for roses? Consider a charitable donation of $75.00 or more to BBSEF in lieu of selling roses.
You may use the tent to boot up and to warm throughout the day.
Continue to use your vehicle as your base camp.
MASKS ARE REQUIRED AT ALL TIMES IN THE TENT.
ABSOLUTELY NO FOOD IN THE TENT!
NO BAGS, SHOES OR PERSONAL ITEMS MAY BE LEFT IN THE TENT.
Please respect these rules so that we can continue to make the warming tent available to BBSEF families.
The tent is located in the Bitterroot parking lot (Skier's left as you head down the cattrack from the Training Center.)
BBSEF extends a huge thanks to season sponsor Albertsons for providing the tent; to Bogus Basin for allotting this space for us; and to all the coaches and volunteers who worked so hard in all manner of conditions to assemble and create a warm place for our members.
Michael B. Young Big Mountain Champs Celebrates One of Our Own.
We are proud to host the
Michael B. Young Big Mountain Championships
February 18 & 19
at Bogus Basin.
This IFSA Big Mountain event honors and celebrates
BBSEF athlete, coach and generator of stoke,
Michael B. Young.
The Michael B. Young Big Mountain Championships celebrate the life and enthusiasm of the very man who helped launch the annual competition.
Michael’s relationship with BBSEF started in 1994 as a Mitey Mite. He soon became an accomplished alpine racer, freestyle skier and all-around Generator of Stoke. Snowmelt did not slow him down. He spent the rest of the year behind a boat and earned his first national water ski title at age 10.
When Michael hung up his race skis, he joined the coaching staff and for seven years shared his love of skiing with up-and-coming BBSEF athletes. Every year, he spent days building and shaping the Gelande jump in preparation for the annual Coaches Cup Finale. Mitey Mites, coaches, parents and volunteers gathered to witness his legendary test runs. Not one to disappoint, he sent it in height and distance every single time - complete with an ear-to-ear grin.
Michael loved to ski no matter the discipline. He and his father Barry Young started what is now BBSEF Freeride. Together, they revitalized the program and brought Big Mountain competition to BBSEF and Bogus Basin.
Michael truly epitomized the happy, fun, athletic person that BBSEF is proud to call their own. Although his time with us was far too short, his infectious smile, work ethic and enthusiasm continue to inspire.
We are honored to host the Big Mountain competition in his name. Join us at Bogus Basin Mountain Recreation Area for the stoke and stomp that Michael B. Young served up.
