Before we start talking details about this new exciting scholarship, it’s worth mentioning how much we love our JHMR athlete team! These folks are not only leading the ski and snowboard industry in terms of pushing the limits in creatively riding big mountain terrain, but they are also the type of people who purse their off-slope goals with vigor and passion that is inspiring to all of us.
Crystal Wright is no exception – and her non-profit the JH Babe Force has become a quiet giant in our community, providing support and encouragement for women of all ages to achieve goals, get outside and be active in sports. So when Crystal approached our Mountain Sports School about creating a scholarship for one lucky woman to attend Elevate Camp, we jumped all over the opportunity.
Crystal Wright and members of the Babe Force bring together women and turn up the stoke! (Who’s the random dude with a napkin on his head? Must be a groupie!)
The scholarship includes the total camp experience, from ski rentals, lift tickets, camp fees and even a six night hotel stay at slopeside Teton Mountain Lodge. This is the full package, ladies, and that is exactly how Crystal wanted to design it. Offering someone the immersive experience of camp will allow the recipient to get out of their comfort zone, not worry about real life for a few days, and spend time with the amazing support system that is the instructors and campers at Elevate.

The Babe Force is calling this scholarship “Facing Your Fears”, and that is because as an athlete coach at the camp for many years, Crystal realized the biggest take away for the women was they were able to tackle terrain much more difficult than ever imagined. The ladies year over year left camp with a huge sense of accomplishment and new dose of self-esteem. We’re thrilled Crystal and JH Babe Force are promoting and enabling that empowerment! You go girls!
The lovely ladies of the Babe Force, give them a high five the next time you see them!
Apply by filling out the online application; the Babe Force is taking applications through December 5th. Elevate Camp dates are January 16-20,2017.
