One of the goals of the Durango Winter Sports Foundation is to provide youth in the community with the opportunity to train and compete in winter sports to the best of their ability. In furtherance of this goal, the Durango Winter Sports Foundation has a scholarship program to assist with tuition for the Alpine, Freestyle, Snowboard and Nordic Ski Teams based on financial need. Scholarship assistance comes from individual and corporate donations and major fundraising events: Durango Snow Soiree, Warren Miller Ski Movie, Winter Equipment Swap, and the SnowDown Spaghetti Dinner.
