November 18, 2017, Reno, NV — Biste Technologies, LLC, home of the Snow Biste, announced a Learn to Ski Scholarship program for the 2018-2019 ski season for youth ages 11-16. The program is being launched to offer an opportunity for four local athletic youth to learn to ski, who may not otherwise have access to the sport. Scholarship recipients will each be awarded eight indoor lessons on the Snow Biste ski training platform in a group setting. The Learn to Ski Scholarship program will also include interactive learning sessions, an exercise program, a presentation to sponsors, and culminate with a group trip to a local ski area. In completing their transformation to skiers, recipients get to try out their skills on a local ski resort mountain. Interactive learning sessions will be taught and include experience speaking in front of a group, training for healthy sports (attitude, eating and fitness), proper sportsmanship, the local history of skiing and ski racing in the Reno/Tahoe area, and environmental conservation / alpine stewardship.
