New and improved.

The Ski Challenge offers even more for 2001

Get out that snowsuit and find those gloves because it's time for the Black Enterprise/AXA Advisors Ski Challenge once again. This past September, you joined us in Miami for some fun in the sun at the Black Enterprise/Pepsi Golf & Tennis Challenge. Now get ready for some fun on the slopes at the Vail Cascade Resort in Vail, Colorado, January 10-15.

Last year, the Ski Challenge was held at Mail's Keystone Resort in Keystone, Colorado. "We changed the venue because we wanted to make the setting more intimate, more like the Entrepreneurs Conference and the Golf & Tennis Challenge," says Ingrid Ebanks, Ski Challenge program coordinator. "More of the activities at the Vail Cascade Resort are on the property." This year's venue also has a few more amenities. Among them are the resort's movie theater and a newly available Spa Package.

The Spa Package includes 25-minute and 50-minute treatments. Choose from a variety of massages, skin treatments, and pampering services after working out in the state-of-the-art fitness center, or check out some exclusive movie screenings in the resort's theater while snacking on some popcorn. The exciting Ski Package, Slopeside Package, and Children's Ski Challenge will still be available, along with a myriad of other wintertime activities. The event's sponsors will host breakfast seminars, picnics, and cocktail receptions. Mark Bailey, another Ski Challenge coordinator, says, "In the Expo Hall, our sponsors get to display their products and services. There, they'll have the opportunity to connect more with the attendees." And those are just some of the daytime events.

When the sun goes down, it's time to mingle and enjoy good music, good company, and award-winning performances by R&B artists.

This is a family affair, so bring the kids with you. Baby-sitting services are available at the resort and, as of last year, there's a children's schedule through the Kids Club for children ages 3-17. Everyone can have a good time.
