A nonprofit organization



"If not for the generous support of the Winter Park Ski Education Foundation, many athletes would not have the opportunity to pursue their dreams." Jeff Burrows, Competition Center Director


To provide high quality opportunities which promote lifelong enjoyment of sport.

Background Statement

The Winter Park Ski Education Foundation (WPSEF) was established in 1987 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization.

The foundation was formed to:

- Support the training of athletes and competitors in Alpine, All-Terrain, Freeski, Freestyle and Snowboard programs through the Winter Park Competition Center.

- Develop, maintain and support the sport of ski and snowboarding competition.

- Support entry-level programs for each of the above-mentioned areas.

- Assist athletes, young and old, reach their potential and possibly fulfill their dreams of becoming a world-class competitor or even an Olympic champion.

The WPSEF provides both merit and need based support to athletes. Over the past few years the foundation has been able to provide approximately $60,000 of annual support.

The WPSEF is run by a volunteer board of directors and works with the Winter Park Competition Center to facilitate various fund raising efforts.
