The photographs below are from our third week of Mid-Week School Group visits. The first session was sponsored by Eaglecrest Foundation, the second by AEL&P, and the third by Sealaska. For more than 35 years, Mendenhall Auto sponsored a Learn to Ski Weekend for Juneau students, who had never skied before, in grades 3rd through 5th. As we seek to resume many of our favored programs to continue reaching our local youth, and to introduce this great sport of skiing and snowboarding, we have forged new partnerships and a new opportunity to expand access to Eaglecrest to our local 2nd and 3rd Grade classrooms.
We have set aside special dates just for 2nd and 3rd Grade classes to schedule a visit to Eaglecrest to learn to ski and snowboard. These trips are sponsored by a partnership with the Eaglecrest Foundation and with funding from many local businesses. A full scholarship will fully cover a class visit (Lesson, Rentals and tickets), including bus transportation, for up to 30 students.
