Bittersweet resident trains and skis for Special Olympics for 10th year

Written by Healthy Living News. Posted in February

For the 10th year in a row, Bittersweet resident Beth Meyer spent a week up north training and skiing at the Boyne Mountain Resort. This year, Ms. Meyer was preparing to compete in the Boston Mills and Brandywine Special Olympics Competition on February 7-8, 2018, in Cleveland, Ohio. From January 21-26, Ms. Meyer received daily two-hour private lessons from the best and most experienced ski instructors at the Boyne Mountain Resort. In addition to training and lessons, Ms. Meyer enjoyed the benefits of the mountain resort, such as staying in a private room donated by a member of the Michigan Alpine Competition Council (MACC), 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 give Ms. Meyer this incredible opportunity. The Boyne Ski School, Michigan Alpine Competition Council (MACC), Toledo Ski Club, and personal funds also help to provide the funding for Ms. Meyer to train at Boyne Mountain Resort.

Ms. Meyer says, “This ski trip means the world to me. Not only is skiing a great adrenaline rush, but it’s also very therapeutic. Skiing is a great physical activity, and the training I receive at Boyne Mountain gets me into shape for racing. I’m so thankful to Gino, Boyne Mountain, the Toledo Ski Club, and MACC for sponsoring me each year.”❦
