WMS, West Mountain's 501(c) (3), Federal Tax ID # 75-3173928, plays a multifaceted roll engaging in fundraising and promotion of ski racing at West Mountain, providing many of the supporting elements such as safety and technical equipment, financial scholarships, and fostering a sense of community and volunteer service. WMS believes a child who participates in athletics is more likely to be happy and healthy while becoming well-rounded and acquiring many skills and disciplines that will allow her/him to realize their goals and dreams throughout their lifetime.

The WMS Scholarship Application is attached below: WMS offers need-based, multi-children and abiltiy-based full and partial WMR program memberships.

West Mountain School is very happy to report it awarded over $6,800 in full and partial program scholarships for the 2017-2018 season!

WMS has received $12,000 in grants from 2017 and 2018 from the Kelly Brush Foundation ($7,000) and the Killington World Cup Committee ($5,000) to purchase safety equipment and supplies for the race program at West Mountain. WMS greatly appreciates the support of these foundations.

Thank you to our sponsors: Whiteman Chevrolet, North Country Subaru, Sysco Foods, Glens Falls National and Curtis Lumber.

If you are interested in a WMR membership for your child and cannot make the financial commitment at this time or have multiple children in the program and would like to apply for scholarship, please fill out the application and return it to Sara Montgomery or any WMS Board Member at West Mountain. Scholarships applications are due by October 1, 2018 and will be awarded in mid to late October and will be good for the 2018/2019 season. If you are a current WMR racer and wish to be considered for a scholarship, you must be in full compliance with WMR's Code of Conduct.  If you wish to donate to our organization, please contact Sara Montgomery, VP of WMS, at sara@westmtn.net or by phone at 518-300-0987.
