January Merit Badge Spotlight: Snow Sports and Personal Fitness

Snow Sports Merit Badge: Skiing and snowboarding are the fastest and most thrilling ways to travel on foot in snow country. These sports also provide the physical benefits of fresh air, rhythmic action, and strenuous exercise. Many games and contests give snow sports variety and added rewards.
