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 (must be recommended by a coach) full and partial WMR program memberships.

West Mountain School is very happy to report it awarded over $10,000 in WMR program scholarships in 2018/2019, up from $6,800 in 2017/2018!

WMS receivedd $20,000 in grant funding in 2018 from the Kelly Brush Foundation ($7,000), the Killington World Cup Committee ($5,000), and the Town of Queensbury ($8,000) to purchase safety equipment and supplies for the WMR race program at West Mountain. WMS and WMR greatly appreciate the support of these organizations.

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