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.”

Stein Eriksen,
Deer Valley Resort Director of Skiing
March 2014


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!

With only twenty bottles produced, this Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from Parallel Wines has been created to honor Stein Eriksen and his more than 60 years of bringing the enjoyment of skiing to people throughout the world.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon from eastern hillside vineyards. Silky soft tannins are combined with good acidity and a bed of ripe cranberries, red fruit and blackberries. Complementing the fruit you will find elegant touches of cigar box, dark chocolate and sweet oak. Round and supple.

On the checkout page, please click “Add special instructions to the seller” and indicate your gift is for Parallel Wines Stein Eriksen Cuvee by entering “Stein Wine”.

Making your annual contribution to the Stein Eriksen YSA Opportunity Endowment can be as easy as writing a check (made payable to “SEYSAOE”) or using your MasterCard, Visa, Discover or American Express credit card, but there are other options for you to consider:

Pay your contribution through the use of our secure and automated payment plan where you pay equal monthly payments over a period of time.

Gifts of appreciated assets can be gifted directly to the YSA and can provide an added tax benefit for you.

Many companies will match your contribution. You can double, sometimes triple your gift.

One of the easiest and most important ways to support the YSA is by remembering us with a planned or deferred gift. You can support the local youth with a living memorial for yourself, your family, or a former coach or friend of our program while you are making the future stronger for our community. BEQUESTS Gifts through wills and bequests can provide an opportunity to sustain your family name in conjunction with the YSA program.

Charitable trusts offer an opportunity to make a substantial gift to the YSA without forfeiting the annual income produced by these assets. You retain income for your life, and the life of your spouse, and the corpus of the trust account is transferred to the YSA upon the death of the surviving spouse. This gift can also be structured to create a substantial tax break over a period of years. Through the creative process of planned giving, incorporated within your comprehensive estate plans, you can fulfill philanthropic goals, reduce income taxes, avoid capital gain and estate taxes, retain a life income, increase spendable income, or reduce the costs of estate settlement.
