Mammut, premiere mountain safety and outdoor brand, is thrilled to announce its Learn to Ski or Ride Scholarship in partnership with Copper Mountain. As a part of their ongoing commitment to support inclusivity in the outdoors, Mammut and Copper created an all-inclusive learn to ski or snowboard scholarship package to reduce barriers of entry into snowsports for a deserving recipient and a friend or family member.
The scholarship prize will assist the recipient and their plus one in learning to ski or snowboard, as well as encouraging them to participate confidently in snowsports, at Copper Mountain, a POWDR resort. The recipient and plus one will be awarded two full-day lessons, equipment rentals, dining vouchers and a weekend stay at Copper Mountain. In addition, the pair will receive Mammut outerwear kits and a custom Mammut shopping experience at the new Mammut Education Center in the resort’s base area.
“At Mammut we recognize that there are significant barriers to entry into the arena of snow sports,” said Mammut Marketing and CSR Account Manager, Nora Fierman. “We aspire to make the outdoors accessible to everyone and hope that this scholarship will assist in facilitating this for two individuals. Furthermore, we hope to grow this scholarship in the coming years, encouraging more brands and individuals to work toward making skiing and snowboarding a more inclusive and accessible sport.”
