Gala on the Mountain – Celebrating Higher Level Humans

For all of us at SMSEF, the commitment, work and embodiment of being a Higher Level Human is what drives us all to grow, achieve our goals and expand our limits. Higher Level Humans are those who display definitive character, leadership and vision in navigating the ever-evolving landscape of life. They push beyond the face value of their individual achievements and relentlessly pursue their passion to make significant contributions for the good of the community. Higher Level Humans are not recognized for a check they wrote, a medal they won or an event they attended, but for the impact they have on our next generation.

At SMSEF, sports are merely the method behind our mission. Higher Level Humans – those who exude character and set the bar for what our athletes should, and can, achieve – are our goal. This year, we are awarding our inaugural Higher Level Human Award to recognize two amazing people who have had a significant impact on our community. One that our athletes will look up to and carry with them to adulthood.

This year’s honorees, Scott and Becky Nyman, exemplify a unique balance of education, community, and self. At SMSEF, we develop Higher Level Humans by building character and leadership in our youth through mountain sports and education. These are qualities so perfectly encapsulated by Scott and Becky. Their commitment to Sundance and the future of our youth has been an incredible vision for the community and SMSEF.

It’s an honor for all of us at SMSEF to recognize the commitment to education and youth that Scott and Becky have brought to Sundance. We hope you’ll join us in celebrating our first Higher Level Human award recipients, and spend a special evening to celebrate the commitment to youth sports education and support a variety of key youth programs on the mountain.
