Overview:

This scholarship is managed by The Alpine Ski Club as a memorial to Kenneth Smith, in recognition of many years of service to the club and the tireless work he did in promoting training for ski touring and ski mountaineering.

The object of the Scholarship is to:

  • assist skiers and mountaineers to improve their ski touring and mountaineering skills.
  • Help to build confidence in travelling through the mountains in winter, and
  • to become a strong, independent ski mountaineer who will be a welcome member of any ski touring team.

  • Applicants for the awards are expected to already be able to ski proficiently, using Alpine touring, Nordic or Telemark equipment.
  • The scholarship is awarded for approved ski mountaineering courses only.

Preferences:
