WE MADE IT! What an amazing season! So much has happened between November and now, it's hard to remember all the details. We have had countless races and days of training, some amazing results and some really challenging days. The kids have been learning, growing, and thriving throughout. We have had a successful Winter Fiesta, lots of casual small gatherings, a handful of potlucks and team dinners, and we helped host
national championships across two different disciplines!
None of this would have been possible without our membership: thank you!
Through all of the ups and downs of the season our community has been incredibly supportive, and I am grateful to all of you for all the different ways you've rallied to support each other, our kids, and me! I'm excited to reflect (when I have time to take a breath, maybe sometime in July?) on my first year. There has been a lot of change (and all of the challenges that come along with change) in our organization this year. Thank you so much for trusting us, for pointing us in the right direction when we were turned around, and for continually providing support. This will be the last club update for a while... they will be coming once a month until next season! I know you will all be very sad not receiving so many BBTS emails...
Within the next week, you'll also be receiving a survey asking for feedback on the year. Thanks in advance for taking the time to complete it - we're embarking on a strategic planning process over the next six months which we're enthusiastic about, and your thoughts and experiences are really important to making sure we go in to the process with the best possible information.
Reach out anytime, and send us updates from non-winter life! Your kids are our kids, so if they're excelling off snow feel free to shoot us an update!
Thanks again for a great year - see you at the Bash!

We were lucky enough to have a special guest on Saturday at Waterville Valley! 3x Overall World Cup Champion Mikaela Shiffrin was here for US Alpine Nationals. Mikaela has just finished off one of the most dominant season for an athlete, ever... She is an inspiration to all young athletes and we thank her for making a stop into our little Valley. Check out this picture of her with some of our BBTS kids!
