Providing support for Mammoth Mountain Ski and Snowboard Teams is a founding goal for MMCF. Introducing children to snow sports and assuring access to Mammoth Mountain for students in the Eastern Sierra is an important part of our mission, too.
Mammoth Ski and Snowboard Team Headquarters
Thanks to the support of our donors, MMSST and MMCF have a home on the hill, taking a huge step forward in realizing our dream for a world-class training facility for Mammoth’s athletes. MMCF funded a comprehensive renovation of the Team HQ at Mammoth Mountain’s Main Lodge, which includes a multi-purpose room for conditioning and team events, study and competition recovery areas, plus new offices for team staff and MMCF.
Ski & Snowboard P.E.
MMCF wants all children in the Eastern Sierra to experience what the mountains have to offer. In partnership with Mammoth Mountain Ski Area, we are proud to fund Ski & Snowboard P.E. programs at eight schools in the Eastern Sierra region, reaching 600 children living along 183 miles of the 395 Corridor. MMCF gives over $50,000 annually to Ski & Snowboard P.E. programs allowing for students to learn skiing, snowboarding and Nordic skiing at no cost to the families.
In support of our student-athletes, MMCF also provides funding to a variety of local athletic programs including: Avalanche Awareness Training, A-Team Awards, Academic Elite Awards, Mammoth Swim Team, Mammoth High School Basketball Team, and more!
Summer Training Program
Partnering with Sierra Cycling Foundation and Footloose Sports, MMCF purchased road bikes for team athletes to use for summer training. A group of a dozen-plus snowboarders and Nordic and alpine skiers train on the bikes with their coaches and complete 50 miles at the Mammoth Gran Fondo, an event that benefits MMCF.
Scholarships + Awards
MMCF provides scholarships to student athletes who meet GPA requirements and whose families demonstrate financial need. In 2019, MMCF awarded $104,000 directly to student-athletes and their families. MMCF also awards $15,000 annually in Mammoth High School Senior Scholarships
