The National Brotherhood of Snowsports (NBS), the largest winter sports organization for African Americans, is proud to announce its 2024 partnership with Big Sky Resort for its annual summit in Big Sky, Montana. This highly anticipated event brings together ski enthusiasts from across the country for a week of skiing, snowboarding, networking, and celebration of the African-American snowsport community.
The National Brotherhood of Snowsports is dedicated to promoting and increasing diversity within winter sports. Since its founding in 1973, the organization has been committed to providing opportunities for African Americans to enjoy and excel in snowsports. The NBS Summit serves as the centerpiece of the organization’s efforts, offering a unique platform for skiers of all levels to come together and share their passion for the sport.
The 2024 Summit, held from February 24 to March 2, will be hosted by Big Sky Resort, one of the premier winter destinations in North America. Big Sky Resort offers world-class slopes and the most technologically-advanced lift network in North America to make the NBS Summit a truly memorable experience. With 5,850 acres of skiable terrain, a brand new tram to the summit of Lone Peak, four bubble chairs with heated seats, and the most consistent snowfall in the Northern Rockies, the 2024 Big Sky summit will be one not to miss.
During the week-long event, participants will have the opportunity to join ski clinics, workshops, and competitions tailored for all skill levels. This year, NBS will join forces with Women of Winter and PSIA-AASI to offer Level 1 Alpine and Snowboard certification scholarship opportunities to 12 of its female members to coincide with the Summit. The NBS Summit also features social events, including live music performances and film screenings. With a focus on fostering a sense of community and camaraderie, the summit allows attendees to forge lasting friendships and connections with fellow snowsport enthusiasts from all walks of life.
