Scholarship Fund Meets $5000 Match Goal

The Craftsbury Outdoor Center is excited to announce that the Kathy Wright Memorial Scholarship Fund met its $5,000 goal in matching donations, raising $10,000 to support our youth skiers. We owe a huge thank-you to everyone in our community—and beyond it—who contributed to the fund, and to the anonymous donor who set the match goal this past summer.

Craftsbury believes that access to the sport of cross country skiing should not be restricted by income. Skiing is an expensive sport, but we are lucky to be part of an amazing community that shares our vision of access and affordability. Scholarships are made possible by the generosity of many families that support the Outdoor Center, and go towards offsetting the costs of ski programs or race/camp travel for Craftsbury junior and BKL ...
