Sharing the Schweitzer Experience with Less Fortunate Children.
People come from all over to enjoy North Idaho’s world-class outdoor activities. However, while tourists and those involved in the local ski industry clearly understand the joy that snow sports offer, many in the shadows of the mountain have no idea.

A large percentage of the children growing up with Schweitzer Mountain Resort in their “backyard” never experience the joy and freedom the slopes provide. These kids, whose families are the hard-working backbone of the community, never experience what many of us take for granted.

Skiing/Snowboarding is simply too expensive for many North Idaho families. Many local children go to school and hear their classmates recalling the great weekend they had on the mountain and they yearn to experience such a fun sport.

This was illustrated by a 4th grade student, who was given a free day of skiing and lessons, wrote a thank you note saying: “Thank you for the best day of my life. I probably won’t see any of you ever again. So goodbye.”

How you can help

The Specifics and How You Can Help
Schweitzer has graciously agreed to work with NIMSEF and set up a program – at greatly reduced tuition – that will enroll our scholarship students in an 8-week, all-day lessons program. All children aged 7-17 who qualify based on economic need and live in Bonner and Boundary counties can receive a season pass, bus pass, and equipment rental via Schweitzer and NIMSEF.

The program created by Schweitzer puts the children in groups of similar age and ability, and the group stays with the same coach for the entire program (all coaches are certified instructors). This all-day program takes place on either Saturday or Sunday, but the pass and equipment rental are valid all season.

Any donations you wish to give to this worthy cause are greatly appreciated and will help North Idaho children realize the dream of being a part of something special. If you have any questions or would like to get involved in the program as a corporate partner, etc., please contact me.
