Educational Ascent

We want to encourage our employees and their families to never stop learning. The Educational Ascent program is a scholarship of up to $2,500 for Vail Resorts employees pursuing a degree or certificate program. The EpicPromise Employee Foundation has granted 13 CBMR employees with Educational Ascent scholarships since 2019, totaling more than $26,000 in tuition savings.


The EpicPromise Scholars grant is a multi-year scholarship of up to $10,000 for the dependents of CBMR employees pursuing a bachelor's or associate's degree. The scholarship is awarded annually to students demonstrating leadership in academia, extracurricular activities, and community involvement. Four Crested Butte students pursuing undergraduate degrees have received this award since 2019.
