Bretton Woods, NH, Dec. 6, 2001–For some people the holidays mean weeks of gluttony followed by months of guilt and dieting. The Mount Washington Hotel and Resorts is offering to help reverse that trend. Starting this Friday the resort will host guests for its “Have a Healthy Holiday” weekend. Unfortunately for us men, the program that includes a women’s only ski clinic, lectures on healthy living and live entertainment is only open to females.
On the first night there will be will be a lecture called “Five Steps to a Healthy Mind and Body” which will outline the overall goals for the weekend. But after the lecture, there will be live entertainment and dancing to get the skiers loosened up and having fun.
Then on Saturday participants will start skiing. The resort’s best female ski instructors will be on hand to give skiing tips whether it’s your first time skiing or you are a seasoned veteran. The best way to make sure you get the five hours of instruction as part of the “Women First Ski Clinic” is to make reservations before you go.
If you are not a skier and would still like to participate the resort is also planning on providing anaerobic fitness classes, snowshoe tours, a healthy cooking demonstration, a massage demonstration, tai-chi and strength training. On Sunday the weekend will end with a snowshoe hike and a goodbye reception.
Cost: $75 for one day at the ski clinic and $120 for both days.
