BSF Pro Team members are selected and trained to compete on the national and international stage. Athletes are self-funded and rely on the support of sponsors, Bridger Ski Foundation (BSF), and the Bozeman community to offset their racing expenses.

The Pro Team's mission is to work closely with junior skiers and serve as role models for the Bozeman community while creating a fun and professional training environment that provides a clear development pipeline for youth racers to become US Ski Team and Olympic-level competitors.
