Creating New Traditions
Indigenous Backcountry Scholarship
The future of snowsports is one that is diverse, welcoming, equitable, and inclusive. But it won't happen on its own. We must create it.
That's why we've teamed up with Deenaalee Hodgdon, a Coalition Snow Ambassador and the Creator and Host of On The Land Media, to create a scholarship for Indigenous communities to increase their access to avalanche training and backcountry skiing and riding.
