Eaglecrest Ski Area announced on Monday the four winners of this year’s Hilary Lindh Scholarship.
Michael Cesar, John Barnhill, Linnea Bush and Trevor Stephens will all receive a free season pass to the Juneau ski hill as the 2017 scholarship awardees.
“These students are wonderful examples of the hard work and dedicated spirit exemplified by the Lindh Scholarship,” the press release stated.
The scholarship program was established in 1992, the same year of Lindh’s 1992 Olympic Silver Medal.
“Hilary started skiing in Juneau at an early age and won the U.S. and World Junior Championships in Downhill at age 16. She also attended a Utah ski academy in 1984, competed on the World Cup Circuit for twelve years winning three World Cup Downhills, and competed in three Olympics,” the press release added.
Lindh is a 2006 inductee of the U. S. Ski Hall of Fame and 2009 inductee of the Alaska Sports Hall of Fame.
Those who applied and were not chosen will receive a lift ticket, rental and lesson package.
Eaglecrest’s opening day is slotted for Saturday, Dec. 2. Mountain updates can be found via Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat and Instagram, as well as SkiJuneau.com.
