This program is funded in part by the Eaglecrest Foundation and provides Juneau middle school students the opportunity to enjoy winter sports at Eaglecrest at no cost. Students for the program are chosen by teachers and staff based on their economic and social need, grades, and attendance. Students chosen are expected to keep good grades, good attendance and low behavioral issues in school. In return they are provided free lift tickets, ski/snowboard rentals, bus transportation and access to clothing including jackets, pants, gloves, and helmets.
Books2Boards is also sponsored in part by Mendenhall Auto Subaru and by grants from Holland America Line.
Hilary Lindh Season Pass Scholarship
At the start of each Eaglecrest season we begin accepting applications for the Hilary Lindh Scholarship. The Eaglecrest board of directors awards four unlimited season passes to Juneau area students. Two passes are awarded to a girl and boy in grades K-5, and two passes are awarded to a girl and boy in grades 6-12. Typically scholarship decisions are made in the begining of December. Applicants are judged on scholastic achievement, competitive or passionate spirit, and financial need.
