What a week end at Sugarloaf! A marriage -- the bride was beautiful, we danced all night, the food was great. Smiling faces and fun -- that is what it's all about! My favorite ice cream vendor, from right here in Maine, Stone Fox Farm Creamery, presented us with pints of their delicious ice cream: Sugarloaf Crunch. It was the very best, what a treat. We all wish it could have lasted longer. What a wonderful week end at Sugarloaf!!
When we asked for "ski ambassadors", we didn't know how much fun we would have AND how great our ambassadors would be. We so appreciate their enthusiasm and their handing out stickers and discount cards. Here are two pictures of our ambassadors. Hilary, their mom sent me the pictures. Thanks for the hard work!!! Now get out there and Ski Like A Girl!!!
It happens every year, and every year it gets a little better. What is it? The CVA Raffle and Auction. For $100 you can buy a ticket, that ticket makes you eligible to win the grand prize of $10,000 as well as the 30+ prizes which are valued at over $100. Ahh, you could have some major fun! All proceeds benefit the CVA scholarship fund. This Saturday -- February 26,2011 -- Sugarloaf Inn.
We love CVA -- think of the excitement of almost knowing some of those olympics skiers and boarders, they are practically family, yet we haven't even met them. It's just a few degrees of separation. Go out there and support our young men and women of CVA. Over 40% of the students rely on financial aid in the form of scholarships.
Not to brag, but I heard that Be A Girl Today has a few prizes in the mix.
Questions - contact Wendy 207.237.4471 or e-mail her at wdarienzzo@goCVA.com.

PS: The Big Raffle Reception -- Live and Silent Auction takes place, Saturday, February 26.

Today we are sending dressage shirts and children's ski t's (in a very cool lime green) to the Maine Maven. Now, we do know that the Maven does not ride dressage (rumor has it she can be found on the golf course ...in the summer), but we're thinking that the UMO Dressage Team may want to stop by and pick up a dressage tee (available in black and in white). They can be found at the Maine Maven, Mill Street in Orono. I haven't been to the store (yet) but have heard you can find some amazing items.
Our second shipment is going to Jeremy Cota of the U.S. Ski Team, oh yes, we are traveling in "ski circles", well actually, I haven't met Jeremy, but my new assistant Kerriann made the connection. So here's hoping that those shirts are well-received. I would so enjoy turning on my TV and seeing a BAGT-Ski tee at a U.S. Ski Team event. I would probably go into a ski coma!! Shirts are also going out to Philadelphia, Arkansas, Texas and Farmington, ME.
Thank you so much!!
Say hello and welcome to Siena one of our very cool and very cute ski ambassadors. Siena skis at Mt. Hood Meadows in Oregon. She's had a minor setback in her skiing career, but you will see her out there skiing in her BAGT T, handing out stickers (with a big smile) next year.
Her mom -- well, she's quite a skiier herself and can be found teaching skiing at Mt. Hood Meadows . We love our ski ambassadors, and cannot wait to post pictures of them skiing and riding.
Hey siena -- we're thinking of you!!! Good thoughts coming your way from Maine!! Go Siena!!!!
