Warren, VT (September 12, 2012) – Sugarbush and Champlain College are teaming up to offer a one-day seminar that unites active living with life-long learning.

Entitled “Healthy Mind, Healthy Body, Healthy Spirit,” the seminar is open to the public and encompasses mountain activities, dining, a musical performance and a lecture series. The program takes place at Sugarbush Resort.

“Champlain and Sugarbush share a similar philosophy of improving the lives of our guests and students,” said Win Smith, President of Sugarbush Resort. “This program seeks to pair those passions in a one-day seminar.”

The seminar’s schedule includes breakfast at Timbers Restaurant and an optional morning yoga session. Lectures include explorations of world demographics by Professor Wes Donehower, social media’s influence on our lives by Professor Elaine Young, endangered languages by Professor Tim Brookes, and communications frontiers by Professor Ann De Marle.

A luncheon follows the morning lecture series with a keynote address by Win Smith. Smith’s remarks will preface his forthcoming book about the rise and fall of Merrill Lynch.

The afternoon is open to explore the mountain activities at Sugarbush Resort that include mountain biking, hiking, golf, tennis, massage, and relaxation. Instruction is available from PGA professionals, USPTR Tennis Pros and the resort’s guide staff. The day concludes with a cocktail hour, dinner and a live performance by Violinist Ann Strubler of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.

Space is limited and registration is required before September 20, 2012. For more information and reservation information, please contact Patrick Brown at Sugarbush Resort at 802.583.6827 or
