WHAT IS THE SUMMIT?

The Summit is a biennial fundraiser of the National Brotherhood of Skiers, bringing together well over 5000 people from all across the country for a week of winter sports fun. Summits are held during odd years. The primary purpose of this fundraiser is to support the NBS Olympic Scholarship Fund, designed to provide financial support for exceptional athletes of color who excel in winter sports. The intent is to propel these young athletes to Olympic and international competition. In addition, funds from this event support the operation of the National Brotherhood of Skiers.

 

WHAT IS THE AMCC (Mini-Summit)?

The AMCC is the Annual Meeting/Challenge Cup, also known as "The Mini Summit". AMCCs are held during the even years, at which time the national elections are held for officers of the National Brotherhood of Skiers. Traditionally, attendance at the "Mini-Summit" is slightly lower than the Summit. However, the "Mini-Summit" still attracts thousands of participants.
