JHSC Core Values
Our "Ski Club Card" membership program is a popular way for businesses to promote themselves during the winter months and a great way for members to support our local businesses.
Thanks to the generous support of our local community scholarships are available through our general Scholarship Fund, the Wes Barron Scholarship Fund, the Nordic Summer Commitment Scholarship, the Brent Newton Ski Foundation and the Betty Woolsey Olympian Endowment. During the 2016-2017 winter season over $70,000 was granted to local kids. In addition, the Karen Oatey Scholarship Endowment Fund was established in 2015 with the goal of funding scholarships in the future.
Hall of Fame
The Hall of Fame was created in 2013 and is part of the larger JHSC Ski Museum, housed in the Ski Shelter side of Snow King Center.
To be considered for the JHSC Hall of Fame, nominees must be at least one of the following: a competitive skier/snowboarder, a ski/snowboard pioneer, a ski sport innovator, and/or an inspirational skier who has made a significant contribution to the Club. Nominees for the JHSC Hall of Fame may be submitted at anytime.
A Renewed Vision
Our vision is to leverage, coordinate, and build the various resources represented by our mission, organization and history, our successes, our partners, and the Jackson Hole community to be one of the strongest ski and snowboard clubs in the region, the nation, the world! Ultimately, we intend to offer JHSC student-athletes an experience that is "Best in the World" and in alignment with the U.S. Ski and Snowboard vision. Our vision is to serve as many athletes as possible and be designed to help them achieve their loftiest ambitions in skiing, snowboarding, and life. This is a 79-year tradition centered on fostering a lifelong passion for snow sports, and being a cornerstone of the Jackson Hole culture and economy.
On April 30, 2018 the Club was awarded Silver Podium Certification at the US Ski & Snowboard Club Excellence Conference in Park City, UT. We are now recognized among the top 10% of clubs in the nation based on these categories:
- Leadership & Governance
- Finance & Funding
- Fostering Club Culture
- PR, Marketing, & Communications
- Human Resources
- Child Protection
- Club Logistics
JHSC will continue to pursue higher levels of Club Certification to ensure we are measuring up to benchmarks established by the very best programs, staffs, and venues nationally and internationally.
To continue the pursuit of this vision the JHSC will develop more dynamic relations with various partners including:
The governing bodies of competitive snow sports: U.S. Ski & Snowboard and the International Ski Federation (FIS), Intermountain Division (IMD), the United States of America Snowboard and Freeski Association (USASA), and the International Freeskiers and Snowboarders Association (IFSA).
Our local world-class venues: Snow King Mountain, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Trail Creek Nordic Center, the Bridger-Teton National Forrest, Teton County, and the Town of Jackson, WY.
Our partners in education: Teton County School District, Jackson Hole High School, Jackson Hole Middle School, Jackson Hole Community School, Teton Science School/Journeys School, other local schools and educational entities, and various online platforms.
Register your child for our programs or make a payment on your account here. Please have ready your family contact information, your child's medical, dental & insurance providers.
For every dollar the Club charges in program fees, nearly one additional dollar is raised through fundraising and events to cover the cost of running the programs. Program fees do not cover the full cost of coaching and other program related expenses such as grooming, snowmaking, other program venues and facilities, program insurance, program supplies, event department expenses and program administration. To cover these costs we are asking our families to consider a contribution to the Club in proportion to their child's level of participation. Your contribution will help the club continue to improve programming. Thank you for your continued support.
