Snow Sports Merit Badge
Snow Sports

This Merit Badge replaced the SKIING Merit Badge.
The change was effective April 1, 1999

There was originally some confusion over the number assigned to this badge.

We were first told that Snow Sports Merit Badge was going to be considered as a NEW Merit Badge and would be listed as No. 135, and that Scouts COULD earn both this badge and the former Skiing Merit Badge, based on information we received from BSA.

We were then informed that Snow Sports was simply a renaming of the former Skiing MB, and would be listed as No. 104. The Troop/Team Advancement Chart (34506A) identified Snow Sports merit badge as #104. Under those circumstances, Scouts that earned Skiing Merit Badge before it was renamed would NOT be eligible to earn the Snow Sports Merit Badge.

However,  in BSA's official record system, SCOUTNET 2000, it is entered into the individual Scout's records as number 135, and therefoe, since it is considered a different badge, Scouts that earned Skiing Merit Badge before it was replaced ARE eligible to earn the Snow Sports Merit Badge.
