Bob Rosso Scholarship Fund

In February 2023, the Boulder Mountain Tour honored Bob Rosso during its 50th anniversary. In conjunction with recognizing Bob and his myriad contributions to our community, the BMT established a scholarship fund in his honor as one of the event’s original organizers, a steadfast supporter of skiing, a proponent of the outdoors, and a champion of the Wood River Valley.

The Bob Rosso Scholarship will be presented annually to a pair of Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation (SVSEF) Prep Team skiers. It will be merit-based and granted on coaches’ recommendations. Prep Team athletes are in grades 6-8 and meet three times per week. It is a crucial juncture in SVSEF programming, and support will help committed athletes take the next step in their ski racing journey. The yearly scholarship will pay for 50 percent of SVSEF ski program tuition for the upcoming season for a girl and a boy who display attributes of Bob’s we greatly admire and want to encourage; enthusiasm for skiing, respect for others, love of the outdoors, and a desire to improve the lives of those around them.

In August of 2023, the BMT presented scholarships in Bob’s honor to Bailey Kurtz and Vivian Cunningham. 

This fund is made possible by generous friends, family, and fans of Bob.
