New for 2016, the National Development Project is a program designed to directly benefit the many clubs, coaches and officials that play a tremendous role in skiing development across the United States. We received many, many applications and are pleased to announce that 26 grants have been awarded. These grants will benefit 19 different clubs from Alaska to Maine for and total $7,500.
