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. To further her competitive spirit, Hilary attended a Utah ski academy in 1984, competed on the World Cup Circuit for twelve years winning three World Cup Downhills, and competed in three Olympics. 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.
