Since, 1973, the National Brotherhood of Skiers has overcome barriers by bringing soul, smiles and a party to the mountain. Formed during the height of the civil rights movement, the organization is dedicated to creating a welcoming space for people of color on the slopes and supporting black youth in snow sports. Today, the Brotherhood hosts the largest gathering of black skiers in the United States and represents 53 ski clubs in four regions across the country and 3,000 members.
