Fostering development through community support.
The SBSEF plays an important role in our local community as well as the larger worldwide ski community. Our community is a connected group of athletes, parents, coaches, schools and supporters which all work together to make our programs possible. This season we are pleased to announce partnerships with local schools, allowing student athletes the opportunity to participate in a winter study/training program without having to enroll in a private school.
In cooperation with the public schools, we have organized an early release for week day training at Snowbird. Please contact Tami Strong (firstname.lastname@example.org) for further information.
Oakridge Elementary, Churchill Jr. High School and Skyline High School
