The sport of ski racing is very costly. World-class equipment, coaching, and training, along with lift tickets, travel expenses, lodging, ski tuning supplies, and competition entry fees all add up for every Olympic level alpine ski racer. Unfortunately, the Armenia Ski Federation has limited funding at this time, and although they have demonstrated their full support, will be unable to financially assist Arman. A brief list of expected costs:

 

1. Lodging: $15,000

2. Lift Tickets: $5,000

3. Transportation: $13,000

4. Equipment: $5,000

5. Training & race costs/fees: $10,000

6. Coaching: $30,000
