Greetings All Mountain & Snowboard Development Teams,


It was great to see the competitive spirit and improved skill level from all that competed last weekend in the Bear Paw Bash. Thank you to all the parent volunteers that helped make the event possible. 


This weekend will be another wintery one. Snow overnight and into tomorrow will make for good skiing, but challenging road conditions and fairly low temperatures. Please be safe on the road, give yourself plenty of time to drive, and dress appropriately. 


We will continue our rotary skill progression over the weekend and start to blend everything we have learned. Again, lunch time will be extended to an hour from 12-1p, allowing everyone to have time to eat, rest, and get back from lunch on time. 


Looking forward, after this weekend we start our Coaches Cup Finale Series. The following two weekends will be filled with various competitions and schedules. The Finale is designed to put our new found skills to the test. We will compete in Big Mountain (similar to Bear Paw Bash), the Mighty Mite Jump (Long Distance Jump), Slalom, and Giant Slalom. More details and scheduling will come next week.  


Covid Guidelines:

Please remember that face coverings are required over your mouth and nose when participating in BBSEF. This goes for athletes while in the group and for parents when dropping off and picking up your child. Thank you for understanding.

Hello All Mountain and Snowboard Home Teams,

This weekend we will be hosting a Big Mountain style event for the All Mountain Home Ski and Snowboard Teams.

This event will consist of 2 runs down Bear Paw.  Best run counts for your score.

The riders will be evaluated using the following IFSA criteria:


  1. Line Choice: Each competitor chooses his/her line or route down the course. High scores are given for choosing difficult routes. Difficulty is determined by steepness, exposure, air, snow and course conditions.
  2. Control: Competitors must remain in control at all times. Any loss of control will result in a lower score. Skillful recoveries will reduce penalties.
  3. Fluidity: Constant direction towards a goal. This includes continuity, pace, and smooth transitions between sections of the course. Falling or stopping can have a negative impact in this category
  4. Technique: Competitors are judged on style and turn quality relating to big mountain freeriding.
  5. Style & Energy: This encompasses the pace, energy and creativity with which a competitor attacks or descends his/her chosen line or route. Style focuses on freestyle execution of maneuvers.
