LEKI Partners with Ted Ligety to Offer Full Ride Scholarship to Ligety-Weibrecht Ski Camp

April 4, 2017

LEKI is excited to announce the first annual LEKI Full Ride Scholarship to the Ligety-Weibrecht Ski Camp, which will award one deserving junior ski racer the ultimate opportunity to train with premier level coaches at one of the top summer training locations in the country. The scholarship includes registration fees for one week of camp at Mt. Hood, air travel to and from camp, and LEKI race gear.

LEKI has long supported all skiers, from those who are just cutting their teeth to those who have won World Championship titles. They first sponsored Ted Ligety in his 2015 quest for a World Championship gold medal and they are now partnering with him to offer a deserving up-and-coming skier a chance to win this once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Ligety embodies the drive and character that inspires kids to do their best in skiing as well as off the slopes in their everyday lives. LEKI will offer this scholarship to one ski racer, male or female, who demonstrates not only financial need but also a commitment to hard work both on and off the slopes. Skiers are asked to submit a short essay on how they would benefit from a week at the camp and how they have been an asset to their community. Applications can be submitted through, and will be accepted through April 15, 2017.

The Ligety-Weibrecht Ski Camp runs three sessions in summer 2017. Visit their website for more information on the camps.
