In 1997, we established the Sodergren scholarships in memory of Mike and Mim Sodergren, very well respected trainers/examiners that were tragically taken as a direct result of the Thredbo landslide. The Sodergren scholarship recognises the rising potential of snowsport instruction within our resorts and allows the recipients to further their professional development by providing all training free of charge for one season.
