In conjunction with the Sarah Burke Foundation, Momentum’s Spirit of Sarah Scholarship has kept Sarah Burke’s memory alive and strong at Momentum (Sarah’s go-to camp for a combined 15 years) for the past four years; the scholarship awards a free “Full Package Girls’ Week” camp to an up-and-coming female skier. Girls’ Week 2016 is slated for July 3-11. The deadline to apply for the 2016 Spirit of Sarah Scholarship is May 7. Additional details can be found, here.
Momentum’s John Smart says, “One of the causes dear to Sarah’s heart was encouraging young girls to follow their dreams and believe in their skiing abilities. She inspired so many young women through her incredible skiing talent and strength, but more importantly through her demonstration of modesty, kindness and her wonderful approach to life. Sarah was a camper with Momentum for four years and a coach for 11 years.”
Momentum runs summer ski camps in Whistler from June 10 – July 18, 2016, for both youth and adults, with many of the world’s top freestyle skiers as coaches.
