Awards

The Eagle Ski Club offers support through several different award schemes:

  • Development Awards:  To assist skiers under the age of 35 (whether ESC members or not) to get established in ski touring or ski mountaineering
  • Adventure Awards: To assist ESC members to take part in ski touring or ski mountaineering tours that are challenging and adventurous, particularly to rarely visited locations off the beaten track 
  • Member to Member Awards: To encourage members to organise and run their own tours and provide an account of their adventures for the yearbook.

For more details of each of these awards and how to apply for them, follow the appropriate link above.

Grants may also be available from the Alpine Ski Club (follow this link).

The Club also supports training for ESC members who would like to, or currently lead tours for the club. The core training programme is subsidised by the club, but Leader Training Grants are also available.
