The Dee Williams Freestyle Fund

At the age of 17 Diana Williams was named to the US Freestyle Ski Team, but on many occasions her limited financial resources prevented her from traveling with the team to national and international World Cup competitions.


Upon retirement as an athlete from the US Ski Team, Diana went from competitor to coach. And in 1988, at the young age of 25, she became director of the Killington Mountain School’s Freestyle program. In 1998 she became a US Olympic Team Coach and held the position until she retired from Olympic level coaching in 2002.


Diana believed in coaching not only to help her athletes improve their skiing, but to learn how to be great people and contribute to their community. The legacy of the young athletes that Diana coached and developed is legendary in the Freestyle world. They were not only world class competitors but more importantly young athletes that benefited from her rigor, and athletic and intellectual honesty that they have carried into adulthood.

In 2020 Diana passed away from cancer and KMS is forever grateful for her influence on our program and the sport of freestyle. Upon her passing, her husband Alex decided he did not want to see other young athletes experience the financial limitations that Diana experienced, no matter what their level of skill. It is with this in mind that he created the fund to continue Diana’s legacy of excellence and compassion. We are honored to be able to provide this scholarship opportunity to enrolled KMS athletes including those accepted to KMS.
