boarding, can this badge be administered by an "alpine only" counselor?
Yes, as long as you counsel for that which you know, alpine skiing. If a
youth calls you for snowboarding, you have two choices, tell him you are not
qualified to counsel snowboarding or ask him to teach you. ( kinda joking,
but hey, why should the scouts be the only ones learning skills?)
I would suggest signing up. It is much the same for Rifle MB, where you
have the option of BB/Air rifle, 22 cal rifle, or muzzle loader. I am a
counselor, but have only fired blackpowder rifles at summer camp and
Philmont. I have yet to be asked to do the MB in muzzle loader, and if I
was asked I would have to respectfully decline the request, for I am not
qualified to do so.
