New Family Ambassador

There is a lot going on at WVBBTS! Form competitions and training, to social activities and mixers. In order to navigate your first year with BBTS we have established a New Family Ambassador program.  We match your family with a veteran BBTS family who can show you the ropes. They are a great resource for asking questions and meeting other club families! To sign up please use the link below.

How to sign up for Races/ Events

For Alpine races follow this link to New Hampshire Alpine Racing Association. You will be able to sign-up for races, view the schedule, and see results.

What the Heck are Athlete Support Credits?

Athlete Support credits are required to be completed by every family in WVBBTS.   The intent of this program is to ensure all members contribute fairly to the support of our athletes by helping WVBBTS host events that create opportunities for our athletes to compete at their home mountain. Families can choose to "buy out" their Athlete Support Credits at the begining of the season. At the end of the season any outstanding credits will be billed to the family

Weekend athletes ages U10 and up in the alpine or freestyle program- 6 credits per family

Alpine High School Program- 4 credits per family

All athletes in the Mitey Mites or freestyle GROMS programs – 2 credits per family

All athletes in the Junior or Senior Snowboard program- 5 credits per family

Examples of jobs that family members can do include, course crew (all disciplines), gate judge, scoreboard assistant, and cleaning the clubhouse. There are also certain jobs that require certification through US Ski & Snowboard, such as an Alpine Official.  We understand that some families will not be able to volunteer on snow for various reasons (don't ski, injury, live far away). In that case please contact and we will help you sign up for a different type of job. We are very willing to work with you and find some way for you to volunteer. We will be using DIBS this season to sign up and track Athlete Support Credits.
