Moonlight Basin announced formally through advertisements recently that its student program – M-Bar-T – and Jack Creek Road access for Madison Valley Ski Club members would continue this winter season.
Encouraging Montana’s youth one pass at a time, M-Bar-T rewards students in grades 6-12 for academic excellence with a discounted season ski pass.
“We see Montana’s youth as being the future of this great state and so we’ve formed the Moonlight Basin Aspiration Reward Team,” Moonlight’s website states. “With M-Bar-T, not only do we reach out to our community and stay involved in our region, but we also encourage students to strive for academic improvement and to experience the benefits of outdoor recreation.”
Students attending public, private and home schools in Gallatin, Madison, Beaverhead, Park and Sweet Grass counties are eligible, but must maintain a 3.0 grade point average or higher. Home school students must achieve “Complete Composite National Stanine” score of seven or higher on the 2011 Spring Iowa Test of Basic Skills.
Season applications, which must be submitted in person, are available online and grade verification is completed by each school individually.
