BAC Volunteer of the Year:

We are pleased to announce that Cathy Baird of Inskiers Ski and Social Club was selected in February as this year's BAC Volunteer of the Year.  Cathy represented BAC at the Far West Ski Association Convention in Reno Nevada. While she may not have won the bragging rights, she won our admiration by representing a great club and BAC as a whole, which some may argue is worth more! Thanks Cathy!

91st Annual FWSA Convention:

On behalf of all of us at BAC, we wanted to extend a heartfelt thank you for your support for the clubs and council at the FWSA Convention. We are thrilled to report that it was a tremendous success, with a fantastic turnout and an incredible atmosphere throughout.

Seeing so many passionate skiers come together was truly inspiring, and we are already looking forward to next year, where we hope to make it even more enjoyable for everyone involved.

Once again, thank you to all who attended and represented our great clubs and council!
