MHRC Summer Camp Invitation

Hello MHRC families,

This is a special invitation to our U14/16/18/21 travel team athletes to attend ski training with MHRC coaches this summer. Our Head Coach Sarah Edwards is a seasoned summer skier and has led multiple ski/adventure camps for MHRC over the many years she has been with us.

The club is currently looking at two options:

  • Mt Hood, Oregon (early July)
  • La Parva, Chile (mid August)

Please review the two trips and if you are interested please reply to registrar@miltonheights.com and indicate your preference by April 20.
Note: Only one trip will be offered, if you are interested in either trip rank them in order of preference.

Shortly after the April 20th deadline, and based on interest and numbers, the club will announce which training opportunity will be offered to its members.
