What we do
How we help
Through funding, thought leadership and community connections, Share Winter is enabling grantee partners such as non-profits, schools, rec centers, non-profit ski areas, and clubs to get over 48,000 youth on snow this winter. We are excited to work with 65 programs this year, including 18 new grantees, to provide amazing mountain experiences for their youth. These partners are providing “learn to ski” and snowboard programming to a diverse group of young people aged 5-18.
Many young people live in close proximity to mountains or ski resorts, but have never been to these locations due to financial and logistical barriers. Our program partners operate in both urban and rural areas and provide students with the opportunity to connect locally with the Winter sports community. Our partnership with Alterra Mountain Company has enabled us to expand into additional areas.
Share Winter is committed to providing youth with skiing and snowboarding opportunities across the United States. We work to connect all of our programs to a national network of winter sports advocates. This year, we are funding programs in 25 states.
This year alone, we will fund over 48,000 youth in programs across the country.
In 2022/23 we supported programs in 87 mountain locations across the US.
In 2022/23, Share Winter helped put more than 48,000 kids on snow.
Last season, 48% of participants had never experienced Alpine, Snowboarding or Nordic before.
