Live Free and Ski founder talks about his nonprofit, and his vision to remove cost barriers for first-time skiers.

While shredding chutes and trees, it can be easy to forget the steep costs of equipment, quality gear, season passes, and even lessons. But Beecher Clifton-Waite, a high school junior, hasn’t forgotten.

Beecher started his organization Live Free and Ski to help local high school students afford the costs of skiing and snowboarding. Now a government-approved nonprofit with a 501(c)(3) status, the organization is booming.

We caught up with Beecher to talk about his passion for skiing, his organization, and the scholarship he's setting up to help low-income families.
