CARRABASSETT VALLEY, Maine — A well-known ski academy in western Maine has launched the second phase of a fundraising campaign to raise money for a new academic wing and other facilities.

Carrabassett Valley Academy is trying to raise $5.75 million toward its $7 million goal.

The money will be used to build a new academic wing, dining facilities, administrative offices and an offseason jumping facility.

School officials say they hope to break ground next spring.

Some of America’s top skiers and snowboarders through the years have attended the academy, including Bode Miller, Seth Westcott and Kirsten Clark.
