Snowsports Merit Badge Program – Boy Scouts
WinterClub provides all the components for Scouts to pass the Snow Sport Merit Badge. The program includes group lessons, safety talk from Patrol, and equipment orientation from Rental Room staff. Scouts will be given a check list card to complete with all the requirements. Upon completion, a Snowsports Merit Badge counselor will sign off on all requirements.
Program available any non-holiday period. Advance reservations required. No additional cost to scout rate. Available for groups or individuals. Scouts who are intermediate skiers/riders can reasonably expect to complete all the components for the merit badge in 3 sessions. First time skiers or snowboarders will need to demonstrate required skills for completion.
