The Northstar Team Foundation supports the athlete’s journey by fostering a community where each athlete has the best opportunity to reach their potential in sport and in life.
What we do
Support Athlete Scholarships
There are 2 different types of athlete scholarships open to all team members. The application process is held both in the Spring and Summer each year and we have granted over $100k in scholarships to-date!
The Foundation gives financial assistance to the team’s 85 full- and part-time coaches.
We support coaches so they can excel on the hill. We provide stipends for health and wellness programs, equipment needed, and financial support for ongoing certifications and education.
Our Capital Works fundraising has provided us with the opportunity to create a Training Arena that consists of 5 dedicated homologated trails with dedicated snowmaking. This gives us the capacity to make snow early, control the snow surface and have dedicated hill space open only to the Northstar Team athletes.
2019/2020 Season Successes
New Snowmaking Installation on Surprise will cover approximately 4 acres of terrain
Digging and laying of snowmaking pipe down the entire length of Training Arena

Visions of a Training Arena

The Foundation and Northstar Resort combined resources to upgrade snowmaking on Loggers and purchase and install 5 fan guns.
Visions Taking Shape
Began the fundraising to homologate and incorporate Hornets Nest and Surprise as part of the training arena.
Re-Grade of the Straights
The Foundation supported a regrade of the Straights in order to open the jump line earlier and have the run open for earlier early season training.
Surprise and Hornets Nest snowmaking project compted. Allowing for the arena to open top to bottom.
