Indigenous Backcountry Scholarship
We’re teaming up with Deenaalee Hodgdon, a member of our Ambassador team and the Creator and Host of On The Land Media, to create a scholarship for Indigenous communities to access avalanche training and backcountry skiing and riding.
When we think about the people who we want to partner with to co-create a future in snowsports that is diverse, welcoming, and inclusive, we couldn’t be more proud to partner with people like Deenaalee.
How can you help? Donate directly to this scholarship here.
And help us congratulate the first cohort of recipients who will receive $1000 to expand and support their backcountry experience + a pair of Coalition Snow skis or a snowboard + an Ortovox beacon, shovel, and probe pack. You can get to know them here.
