    Snow Sports Merit Badge

    A great opportunity for Boy Scouts to earn their Snow Sports Merit Badge. Bear Mountain Resort features low group rates just for Scouts and their Families. Discounted lift tickets, lessons, and rentals will give your Scouts the opportunity to join in. There is not a minimum requirement of participants to qualify.

    BSA Snow Sports Merit Badge counselors will be at Bear Mountain to test the scout’s knowledge and the on-hill skills test required to earn the merit badge. Be Prepared! Scouts will need to bring their own Snow Sports Merit Badge Workbook and Blue Cards. Bear Mountain hosts this event in March so the Scouts have the opportunity to work on their skiing and snowboarding skills during the winter and be prepared for the on hill testing required for the badge.
