For the 11th year in a row, Bittersweet Farms resident Beth Meyer will spend a week training to ski in the Boston Mills and Brandywine Special Olympics Competition held on Feb. 13 and 14 in Cleveland. From Jan. 27 to Feb. 1, Meyer will receive two-hour private lessons daily from the best and most experienced ski instructors at the Boyne Mountain Resort. In addition to training and lessons, Meyer will enjoy the benefits of the mountain resort, such as staying in a private room donated by a member of the Michigan Alpine Competition Council, participating in water park activities and riding on the snow groomer at least once during her stay.
Gino Chiappetta from C.H. Asset Management generously arranges and donates funds each year to offer Meyer this opportunity. The Boyne Ski School, Michigan Alpine Competition Council, Toledo Ski Club and personal funds also help to provide the funding for Meyer to train at Boyne Mountain Resort.
“I look forward to this trip every year. I’ve skied my whole life! It is great exercise and the training I receive at Boyne Mountain helps prepare me to compete. I’m so thankful to Gino, Boyne Mountain, the Toledo Ski Club, and MACC for sponsoring me each year,” Meyer said.
