Sunday concluded Eaglecrest’s 33rd Annual Learn to Ski Weekend. Annie Bartholomew went to Eaglecrest to meet 3rd and 4th graders who got the chance to try skiing for the first time. Every year Eaglecrest has 45 spots available for first-time skiers in the 3rd and 4th grades chosen by lottery. The program is sponsored by Mendenhall Auto Subaru, and provides free lunch, transportation, ski rental and lift passes to students who may otherwise not have an opportunity to ski.
