About the Endowment


Grooming Dreams, Building Futures

“It is an honor to help support the athletic dreams of Park City’s youth. My life’s passion and work has been about the outdoors, sportsmanship and perseverance and it is rewarding to be able to help make this lifestyle a reality for the young members of our community. I hope to encourage the benefits of teamwork and camaraderie and inspire our local youth to excel in the sports they love.”

The goal of the Stein Eriksen YSA Opportunity Endowment is to provide financial resources to youth in the Park City community for winter sports by:

  • Providing opportunity for every child to experience winter sports thereby promoting life-long participation.
  • Providing opportunity for young, committed athletes to continue to strive to reach goals in their sport.
  • Providing support for those in their late teens or early twenties who are members of national teams but are not funded or minimally funded by their respective National Governing Bodies (NGBs).

Thanks to Carla Boecklin for documenting the Endowment’s launch event in April 2014. See some great images from the evening here!
