The Duke Peterson and Randy Davis Memorial Scholarship Program


The Duke Peterson Memorial Fund

Established in 2002, this fund was created in memory of the coach and friend that Duke Peterson was, and still is, to so many on the Squaw Valley Freestyle & Freeride Team. Duke spent a great portion of his life as both a competitor and coach on this team, and was the Team Director when he passed away in 2001.

8 scholarships from the Duke Peterson Memorial Fund are given annually to members of the Squaw Valley Freestyle & Freeride Team, with the intention to provide these athletes with the opportunity to work as hard and passionately at freestyle skiing as Duke so often did himself.

The Duke Peterson Award is given to one of these scholarship athletes for having the most positive energy and being the best role model possible for the team, exemplifying a good attitude and attendance to all practices and competitions.

…we remember you Duke, and on the good days out there on the hill, we ski with you in our hearts… More about Duke
