The Eastern Slope Ski Club also offers a scholarship for winter athletes. Eastern Slope Ski Club was founded in 1935. The basic philosophy of the Club is to promote skiing in the Mt. Washington Valley and give all children in the valley the opportunity to participate in the sport. Some children take this for granted and have been brought up skiing; others would never be able to enjoy the sport were it not for this program. The ski club provides skiing for all school children in grades 1-6 and equipment if needed.
Tax deductable donations to the Jimmy Mersereau Scholarship are appreciated and accepted. They can be sent to:
