SkiDUCK is an entirely volunteer based non-profit organization dedicated to enriching the lives of financially disadvantaged, minority and at-risk youth by teaching and sharing the joys of skiing and snowboarding.

Each season SkiDUCK provides hundreds of kids (ages 7-18) with over 1,000 FREE days of skiing and snowboarding; including free lift tickets, rentals and lessons! In our early days, SkiDUCK expanded to running programs at 15 resorts across nine different states coast to coast. But they have since returned to their home in beautiful Lake Tahoe, CA and their home resort Palisades Tahoe. They are so fortunate to have their support and the support of the greater Lake Tahoe community!

SkiDUCK is committed to partnering with local area organizations with similar goals of serving underprivileged youth. If your community or organization is interested in partnering with SkiDUCK to establish a program to introduce disadvantaged youth to the slopes, give them a QUACK!

There are 3 different types of GSAs—all of which can directly impact LGBTQ+ youth: Social, Support, and Activist. Every GSA can create its own mission and goals to meet the needs of its members and the unique climate of their school.
