What’s on Tap for Well-Being… Weeks of September 13th and 20th

Change is inevitable in life. You can either resist it and potentially get run over by it, or you can choose to cooperate with it, adapt to it, and learn how to benefit from it. When you embrace change you will begin to see it as an opportunity for growth.

– Jack Canfield

It’s time to start thinking about skiing!  Sugarbush is still finalizing their corporate pass details but if you’re interested in a pass to Smuggler’s Notch you can learn more about the corporate rates here.  If you’d like to purchase a pass you can do so here.   Currently GMHEC does not have a corporate pass deal with Bolton Valley and this year they are not accepting new corporate members so GMHEC cannot offer discounts.  If your college has had a corporate pass in the past, you may be able to take advantage of that again this year.
