The National Brotherhood of Skiers, Inc. (NBS) was founded in February 1973 in Aspen, Colorado, USA and incorporated in 1975. The NBS mission is to identify, develop, and support athletes of color who will win international and Olympic winter sports competitions representing the United States.

The current national president is Diana C. Starks.[1]

Team NBS was formed to meet this mission. It is a national team under the direction of a coach and competition director, Andre Horton. Athletes are selected from the four regions: West, Rocky Mountain, MidWest, and East. Athletes receive training and support on a year-to-year basis through national, regional and local fundraisers which raise money for the Olympic Scholarship Fund.

Past athletes sponsored by the NBS who have gone on to compete internationally include:
