The Alyssa Lara Purple Snowboard Scholarship Fund has been established in honor of Mammoth Mountain's dynamic and joyous instructor, Alyssa Lara.  

In honor of Alyssa, the Purple Snowboard Scholarship Fund will provide financial assistance to underserved youth and grant the opportunity to visit and experience Mammoth Mountain. It is our goal that season after season young children will be able to learn to ski and snowboard and experience the wonder of snowy mountains the way Alyssa did, to learn about her and to experience their own Joie de Vivre.
