In accordance with our mission to provide affordable outdoor recreation to the residents of Juneau, Eaglecrest is excited to announce we are now accepting applications for the 5th Grade Passport and Hilary Lindh Scholarship! Stay tuned for more information about Eaglecrest’s other Community Programs like Learn To Ski Weekend and Books 2 Boards.
ABOUT THE 5TH GRADE PASSPORT
5th Grade Passport awards free lift tickets to all Juneau area fifth-graders, as well as one free lesson and one free equipment rental. After you’ve completed the application form, Passports may be picked up in person at the Eaglecrest Ticket Office. Proof of grade is required upon pickup.
If your student has never skied or snowboarded before, he or she may enroll in the Eaglecrest Snowsports School’s First Time Ski/Snowboard Passport Series! It’s a complimentary two-week series and the perfect introduction to the sport!
ABOUT THE HILARY LINDH SCHOLARSHIP
Each year Eaglecrest’s Board of Directors and staff award four season passes to Juneau area students through the Hilary Lindh Scholarship Program. The application deadline is Monday, November 18, 2019, and winners will be announced Friday, November 22. Applicants are still advised to purchase season passes; the winners will be refunded.
The Eaglecrest Board of Directors established this program in 1992 in recognition of Hilary Lindh’s 1992 Olympic Silver Medal and the hard work that she dedicated to downhill ski racing. Hilary started skiing in Juneau at an early age and won the U.S. and World Junior Championships in Downhill at age 16. After winning the 1997 World Downhill Championship, Hilary retired in March of 1997. Hilary was inducted in to the U. S. Ski Hall of Fame in 2006 and the Alaska Sports Hall of Fame in 2009.
