SheJumps Snowpack Scholarship
From progressing ski and snowboard skills to avalanche education, the SheJumps Snowpack Scholarship Program provides an educational bridge for women in winter activities. SheJumps is looking for motivated women who want to push past their perceived limitations when it comes to snowsports. We encourage women of color and individuals with demonstrated financial need to apply.
Mission of Scholarship Program
To create affordable opportunities for adult women to gain experience and education in snowsports and avalanche safety, so as to increase participation in winter sports. Our hope is to reduce the gender gap in outdoor sports and provide a safe learning environment through women-led and attended courses and low-cost programming.

SNOWPACK IKON SCHOLARSHIP
The Snowpack Ikon Scholarship Program started in 2019, when a set of 8 Ikon passes was donated privately to SheJumps.
We are excited to grow the program with support from Ikon Pass. In the second year of the program, SheJumps and Ikon continued to expand the scope of the Snowpack Ikon Pass Program. 10 Ikon Pass Scholarships provided lift-accessed adventures to iconic ski destinations to women of color looking to get into the sports of snowboarding and skiing nation-wide.
SNOWPACK AVALANCHE SCHOLARSHIP
The Snowpack Avalanche Scholarship Program was founded in 2017 with Snowpack Pale Ale, a Seattle-area collaboration beer between Fremont Brewing and K2 Skis, in support of the Northwest Avalanche Center and SheJumps.
In the third year of the program, SheJumps and the Northwest Avalanche Center continued to expand the scope of the Snowpack Program to new regions, with a focus on affordable avalanche education and mountain access to new skiers and snowboarders.
We were excited to grow the program with support from K2 Skis, Fremont Brewing, Montucky Cold Snacks, and Ikon Pass. Through our Avalanche Program, a total of 34 scholarships were awarded for women, with a preference to women of color, to attend AIARE Level 1: Decision Making in Avalanche Terrain courses in Washington, Oregon, California, and New Hampshire.
2021/2022 Application will open October 1st.
