This is going to be great. Nice work, Jeremy Ueland!
Due to the generous support of our team's sponsors, every member of the BSSEF Alpine Team will get the use of a new team jacket during the 2011-2012 season. In effect, the rental price of the jacket is included in this year's program fee. All members of the Youth Ski League, Buddy Werner, and Junior Development teams (and their coaches) will have the same, high quality, Spyder jacket.
- Team members will be required to wear their team jackets at all team events, training sessions, and competitions.
- Jackets will be allocated in the order in which program fee payments are received by BSSEF.
The charcoal-colored jacket with lime highlights is illustrated below:
The benefits of the program are numerous:
- Parents will be able to get the correct size for their growing kids every year without hassle.
- For the first time in memory, the team will present a consistent image that will reflect well on BSSEF and Big Sky Resort.
- Likewise, we will be able to demonstrate our sponsors' support in a consistent and comprehensive manner.
- Bulk purchasing from Spyder allows us to get a high quality jacket at an economical price.
- Because this is a special order subject to minimum order quantities, Spyder will be able to maintain this style for years to come.
A portion of members' program fees will be re-invested in the jacket inventory. Team members will be responsible for repairing damage beyond reasonable wear and tear. Members will be automatically charged a replacement fee for jackets that aren't returned at the end of the season in good condition. Each jacket will have a unique identifying number. These measures will ensure that the BSSEF will be able to maintain a sufficient stock of jackets over time.
Sponsor donations allowed the team to purchase an initial inventory of 112 jackets. Here is a breakout of the ordered jackets by size:

The jackets will be embroidered with the following logos:
- The BSSEF logo will be on the chest.
- The Big Sky Resort, Lone Mountain Sports, Alpine Property Management, and Grizzly Outfitters sponsor logos will be split between the left and right shoulders/upper arms.
- The Lone Peak Physical Therapy, Rivers to Peaks, American Bank, and TicketRiver.com sponsor logos will be placed in the small of the back.
These sponsors, in particular, enabled the team jacket program. The support of other sponsors will be acknowledged in other ways. Please make a special effort to thank our sponsors for their crucial support.
