How do BSSEF’s programs differ from those offered by Big Sky Resort?

BSSEF’s programs – Alpine and Freeride – incorporate sanctioned competitions; Big Sky Resort’s youth programs do not. The resort offers several instructional programs for area athletes aged 7 to 15.

For purposes of comparison, the most relevant of the resort’s Youth Local Programs are Wolverines and Big Sky Rippers: The Wolverines program (ages 7-14) is similar to BSSEF’s Youth Ski League program. The resort’s Rippers program (ages 10-17) is most comparable to BSSEF’s Buddy Werner or Freeride programs and emphasizes advanced terrain.
