Women’s Discovery Camps at Sugarbush Return in Late January and Early March
Warren, VT (January 23, 2017) – Sugarbush’s internationally-recognized Women’s Discovery Camps are scheduled to occur twice this winter. A weekend camp will be held Friday, January 27th – Sunday, January 29th, and a second, weekday camp will be held Monday, March 6th - Wednesday, March 8th.
“Our theme this year is Movements and Sensations,” said Terry Barbour, Ski & Ride School Director. “Skiing is a dance with gravity, the mountain, and the snow. To dance well, we need to move. This year, we’ll explore what those movements are and what they feel like. Of course, we’ll have to be careful – some of those sensations may get people addicted to the sport!”
The camps were recognized last year by Departures Magazine in an article entitled “Top-Notch Women’s Ski Camps”. Sugarbush’s Women’s Ski Discovery Camp was the only northeastern resort women’s camp mentioned in a group that included top-tier resorts such as Vail, Alta, Chamonix, and Whistler.
Sugarbush’s camp has been offered for a number of years, and takes advantage of the resort’s excellent veteran coaches such as Ski Magazine-ranked instructor MA Raymond, as well as celebrated coach Paté Weston.
The resort has also offered incentives to assist working women and mothers to attend the camps. Each participant in Women’s Discovery may receive either a half-price full-day kids program in The Schoolhouse children’s center, or a half-price companion adult lift ticket for each day of the camp.
Along with on-hill instruction, the camp includes video analysis, group meals, après ski socials, and optional ski demos.
The camp is $525 exclusive of day tickets, which are available at a discount for campers. Discounted lodging packages for the camps are also available. For more information and to register, visit www.sugarbush.com.
