Meet the Blizzard-Tecnica W2W Scholarship Recipients
PSIA-AASI Official Supplier Blizzard-Tecnica announced the recipients of the 2023 W2W Hilaree Nelson Scholarship Program, including several professional snowsports instructors.
Now in its third year, the program is seeing more and more women aspiring to leadership roles with the goal of creating space and bringing other women along into the sport of skiing.
The late ski mountaineer Hilaree Nelson used the mantra, “It’s much easier to be something when you see a path put down by women before you.” To honor her legacy the brand stated, “We are excited to help women in their pursuits and for them to carry Hilaree’s torch for future generations of women.”
The brand awarded scholarship dollars and a Blizzard ski and a Tecnica ski boot to women looking to advance their education in the ski industry from ski instructor certification to enhancing their bootfitting skills.
PSIA-AASI members who received a scholarship include Cassidy Craige, Elinor Tatum, Erika Mitchell, Kelly Boardman, Michelle Trotter, and Sowmya Subramanian.
