Ross and Sue Ehrhardt Adaptive Ski Scholarship
Purgatory Resort, nestled in the majestic San Juan Mountains of southwest Colorado, will be your destination this winter if you are awarded a scholarship through the Ross and Sue Ehrhardt program. Breathtaking scenery, old west charm, friendly people and an exciting experience will highlight a scholarship winner’s all-expense paid trip.
The scholarships were created to provide an opportunity for people with disabilities to discover their potential, successfully meet and overcome challenges, learn and enjoy an exciting new sport, travel and make new friends, and most importantly, have fun! These benefits and many more have been experienced by over 500 past scholarship recipients over the last 39 years.
The Torrey Pines Kiwanis Club has raised the ski scholarship funds through its annual event the San Diego Festival of the Arts. The scholarships enable people like you to learn how to ski under the careful direction of Adaptive Sports Association (ASA) ski instructors in Durango. ASA is one of the best ski schools for people with disabilities in the United States. Skiers will travel to Durango during January or February, 2023.
This scholarship includes round-trip airfare from San Diego to Durango, CO, five nights lodging in the host home of Adaptive Sports Association volunteers, four days of ski instruction, lift tickets and all necessary equipment. Outer ski clothing may be available on request.
