Times change however, and the club’s operations were wound down and the building sold. There were funds left over after the demise of the WSC, along with a desire to see the legacy endure. Thus, in 1990, the Winnipeg Ski Club Trust Fund was born, in order to assist with the development of skiing at the grassroots level. The Trust Fund’s mandate is to distribute the interest, generated by the nest egg investment of the Club’s funds from liquidation and, if possible, grow that capital.
Under the guidance of the WSCTF Development Committee, the Winnipeg Ski Club Trust Fund provides financial assistance specifically for skier instruction and coaching though annual bursaries to individuals, clubs, or ski organizations. These bursaries are awarded, on an expense-matching basis, to assist applicants who have taken advanced certification levels (CSIA, or CSCF) in order to teach or coach local skiers. Consideration is also given to other related applications, such as bringing higher-level instructor-examiners in to conduct courses or seminars.
