Dear SBSEF Friends, Families, Members, and Supporters,
We made it! The 2020-21 season is one we will never forget…I am filled with gratitude and a sense of unity as we can say that not only have we had a season, we have had a very successful one! Our athletes have been doing what they love, and SBSEF has been able to continue to fulfill its mission:
"We strive to foster a passion and lifelong love of winter sports and an active outdoor lifestyle while developing the life skills associated with success in all endeavors: goal setting, self-discipline, a strong work ethic, determination, and commitment."
Despite uncertainty and unknowns on a scale, we have never seen before SBSEF/AltaBird athletes and coaches with the help of all our sponsors, supporters, and family members, pulled together to make it happen. We all made sacrifices, we learned a lot, we took care of each other, and the athletes thrived. We saw tremendous development, camaraderie, and strong competitive results throughout. SBSEF athletes continue to shine on the biggest stages in the world, including the World Cup and World Freeride Tour.
The Covid19 pandemic has changed our world dramatically, including financially for many. We recognize that this season has been more difficult for our athletes and member families in significant ways. We recognize the cost and sacrifice that it demands. Similarly SBSEF lost revenue streams this season due to the pandemic and as we plan for next season we have certain gaps to fill. Radios, Bnet, vehicles, and other equipment that needs replacement. Operational expenses and scholarship funds need to be replenished.
The SBSEF Board of Directors along with supporters have come together to offer a 10K matching grant to any funds we can raise during the Spring Renewal Drive. This unity and generosity is indicative of the community surrounding this organization, and inspires our Spring Renewal Drive, in what we hope marks a subsiding pandemic and a return to togetherness. Please join us! CLICK LINK HERE to donate.
