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 (see infographic) 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.

WMS Scholarship Application is attached below: WMS offers need-based scholarships for full and partial WMR program memberships. This opportunity is open to any racer interested in a need-based program scholarship to race for WMR.

West Mountain School is very happy to report it awarded over $5,000 in full and partial program scholarships for the 2016-2017 season! Other contributions are listed in the infographic at the right. Thank you to our sponsors: Whiteman Chevrolet, New Country of Saratoga, Sysco Foods, Glens Falls National, and the Kelly Brush Foundation.

If you are interested in a WMR membership for your child and cannot make the financial commitment at this time, please fill out the application and return it to Sara Montgomery at  West Mountain or to any Board Member of West Mountain School. Scholarships applications are due by Monday, October 8, 2017 and will be awarded in the fall for the 2017/2018 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.
