Camden — Two Olympian skiers will be on hand at the Camden Snow Bowl to kick off the Second annual Cardboard Box Derby Saturday, March 8.

Julie Parisien, three-time Winter Olympian and World Cup Gold Medal winner, and Carrie Sheinberg, Olympian and former member of the US Ski Team, will join the festivities Saturday afternoon as contestants gather for the derby. Parisien and her family will be the first ones down the hill in their box. Both Olympians will be available at registration to say hello and sign autographs.

Sheinberg was a member of the US Team from 1990-1998 and a member of the Olympic Team in 1994. Parisien is this year's spokesperson for the Ski Maine Peak to Peak Challenge.

“My ski career took me to three Winter Olympics and although I got to travel the world, I never forgot that it all started right here in Maine,” Parisien said in a news release.

Awards at Saturday’s Cardboard Box Derby will go to the teams with the Fastest Box, the Most Creative Box, the Most Spirit, and the team that can fit the Most in a Box. Registration for the Cardboard Box Derby will take place at the Snow Bowl between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. on race day. Helmets are required, and the entry fee is $20 per box. The race starts at 2 p.m.
