The Columbia Sportswear Ski Bum Scholarship Program was created to give young people the opportunity to pursue their passion for the outdoors to the fullest. We’re looking for one starry-eyed idealist ready to commit fully and without reservation to the pursuit of fresh powder and quality time in the hot tub. A comprehensive on-mountain experience, the Ski Bum Scholarship provides airfare, lift tickets, lodging, and a generous stipend for living expenses. This allows our ski bum scholar the opportunity to live, learn, and pursue the good life on the mountain without any unpleasant entanglements like long-term goals or gainful employment.
