BOYNE Thanksgiving Race Camp – Sunday River, Maine – November 21-28

BOYNE will conduct a Thanksgiving Camp at Sunday River Resort in Bethel, ME. Our camp director will be Cary Adgate, Boyne’s Ambassador of Skiing, a two time Olympian and a member of the US Ski Hall of Fame. Cary has assembled an outstanding team of coaches that will make learning fun and effective. In addition, Sunday River provides a number of unique assets that will enhance this quality early season training for the athletes.

As a member of the Boyne Resorts family, Sunday River has the advantage of BOYNE Low-E Fan Guns that have enabled them to open in late October each of the last two season. They have designed the Snowcap Ski Dorm specifically to house youth groups such as the BOYNE Thanksgiving Race Camp. It allows athletes quality socialization when they are not on-snow.  In addition to the great facilities, choosing Sunday River enables athletes to use their Boyne Gold Season Pass to access the lifts.

Uncrowded, snow-covered streets and groomed ski trails leading to stunning  vistas, make a winter trip to Mackinac Island a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Here are some photos of winter on the island from March 2009. (Look for more information online about visiting Mackinac Island in the winter soon.)
