History of the Hilary Lindh Scholarship:
The Eaglecrest Board of Directors established this program in 1992 in recognition of Hilary
Lindh’s 1992 Olympic Silver Medal and the hard work that she dedicated to downhill ski racing.
Hilary started skiing in Juneau at an early age and won the U.S. and World Junior Championships
in Downhill at age 16. She also attended a Utah ski academy in 1984, competed on the World Cup
Circuit for twelve years winning three World Cup Downhills, and competed in three Olympics.
After winning the 1997 World Downhill Championship, she was inducted in to the U. S. Ski
Hall of Fame in 2006 and the Alaska Sports Hall of Fame in 2009. In celebration of her achievements,
the Hilary Lindh scholarship is a great way for Eaglecrest to connect with the Juneau community
and support young skiers and snow boarders to pursue their dreams of snowsports.
