Greetings to the BBAT (Big Bear Alpine Team)!

USASA Events

The coaches would like to encourage all members to take part in two up-coming USASA local events. If you are already a USASA member, you can enter the Half Pipe at Bear Mountain on Sunday, February 28.

For those who are going to participate in the January 31 event at Snow Summit, meet at Registration at 9:00 AM in Bear Bottom Lodge.

If you or your athlete have decided to not participate in the Sunday event, then the athlete will meet at the regular time and place for training. Both competing athletes and non-competing athletes will have a coach accompanying them.

BBAT Race Series at Bear Mountain

Saturday, February 20: Rail Jam
Saturday, March 12: Rail Jam
Sunday, March 27: Rail Jam

We’ll have more information on these events in the next couple of weeks.

Night Training

We’ve set aside Saturday, February 13 from 2:00 to 8:00 PM for night training under the lights at Snow Summit. The BBAT will not train in the morning, but will meet at 2:00 in the SSRT team room, Tyndall Haus (upstairs above Guest Services), at Snow Summit. This will be a fun change of pace for the BBAT.

Presidents’ Day Camp

Monday, February 15, we will have a Presidents’ Day Camp. Now in future years, camp attendance will be an additional $100 charge, but the coaching staff is offering this extra day of training at no extra charge because the arrival of the team jackets was so delayed.

We sincerely hope that all athletes can attend all of these special competitive and training events!
