Hello Bomber Community;
Mt. Batchelor still has lots of snow and will be open for Teams to come and train next month. The mountain will not be open to the public during this time.
I am looking for a few more riders to attend this training camp so I can lower the cost for those who have already expressed interest.
It will be a small group of 8 riders max, but at 8 riders the cost is quite reasonable. I currently have 4 riders who would like to participate.
The camp is open to ages 13 and up. Prior racing experience not required, but would like riders to have at least intermediate ability to participate
Apologies for the last minute timing of this post but If anyone is interested please contact me by email asap. (I am currently in Europe and not using my phone) My email address is; email@example.com

If interested please let me know what your price limit is so I can determine if there will be enough riders to pull the camp off at that price. If I am able to get enough riders at a given price level I will have to have partial if not full payment made asap in order to confirm lodging and hillspace. I will not accept any payment for the camp until I have enough riders confirmed at an acceptable price level.
