Progression Session I

The Jackson Hole Babe Force Scholarship Program is designed to offer financial support to women who want to succeed in the mountains. With your help through our fundraising efforts, we have raised enough funding to offer several types of scholarships this year. This application is for a spot in an all-women's Avalanche Level 1 Course at the American Avalanche Institute hosted by the Jackson Hole Babe Force in Jackson, Wyoming from February 21-24, 2019. We will be awarding a total of 24 Progression Session I scholarships this year!

A recipient of this scholarship will receive one fully paid spot in an all-Babe Level 1 Avalanche Course. This will be a unique opportunity to learn critical mountain safety while meeting like-minded women in the community, and maybe even some new female backcountry ski partners! Please visit to learn more about the American Avalanche Institute and its avalanche education courses.

To be considered, please complete the following application. The JHBF board will evaluate all applications. If selected for a scholarship, we want to hear your story. The JHBF will require one blog post and pictures so we can document and brag about your snow knowledge. If you have any questions, please email

***The deadline for applications is November 26, 2018.***
