The Foundation’s main purpose is to raise money to help support and grow these teams. We put on special events and coordinate the needs of our teams with the Sierra-at-Tahoe Management. We also provide scholarships to our athletes based on need, character of the athlete, and parent involvement in the community.
The Sierra Educational Foundation is a 501 C(3) non-profit that strives to support winter athletes enrolled in the Sierra-at-Tahoe competition teams:
Alpine, Big Mountain Ski/Snowboard, Freestyle Ski/Snowboard, Skier/Snowboard Cross
This year the Foundation fee is $100 per athlete or $125 per family with 2 or more athletes. As always, this includes a team sweater or t-shirt per athlete on the comp teams as well as all other foundation benefits which are growing quite a bit this year. 6 volunteer hours per season are requested for each family enrolled in our programs (8 hours for families with multiple kids).
