“When budgets are cut in eastern Oregon’s rural Baker County School District, schools must move to a four-day week. The Ski for the Health of It (SHI) program stepped in to provide students with a pass to ski on their day off school, consequently stoking a lifelong passion for snowsports in students.”
Really liking this program that gets ranch/rural kids in Eastern Oregon out on the hill after their school week was shortened due to budgetary issues. Not all lessons are taught in a classroom.
Thanks to continued support from the Leo Adler Foundation, Anthony Lakes is able to greatly reduce the individual cost for participants in the Ski for the Health of It program. Promoting the life-long healthy aspects of skiing, the Leo Adler Foundation has allowed Baker County and North Powder kids, grades 4-12, to participate this wonderful 8 week program for $80 (or $50 for High School Bus students). Cost includes lift, lessons, rentals, and transportation from Baker. (Note: North Powder students may have an additional cost for transportation. Please check with your school counselor.)
