GRP Skiers Take 1st and 2nd in Truckee SuperTour; Sargent and Guiney Race in Ulricehamn

Green Racing Project skiers had a successful weekend of racing in California, picking up two podium spots at the Truckee SuperTour. The GRP also had two skiers compete on the World Cup in Ulricehamn, Sweden.

Truckee SuperTour Classic Sprint

The theme of the Truckee weekend was snow- an abundance of it falling from the sky and on the trails. The races were originally scheduled as a classic sprint Saturday and 5/10k freestyle Sunday, but the organizers had to cancel the second day’s races due to unsafe road conditions up to the venue. In the women’s classic sprint qualifier, Kaitlynn Miller took the win by over 3 seconds, followed by Caitlin Patterson in 6th, Heather Mooney in 14th, and Mary O’Connell in 16th. Ben Lustgarten was 4th in the men’s qualifier. They improved upon those ...

Juniors Race in Craftsbury and Lake Placid

 

This weekend, there were two racing opportunities for juniors. One was on home turf at the Mansfield Nordic Duathlon, while the other was across Lake Champlain at the Lake Placid Junior National Qualifier.

A small Craftsbury contingent went to Lake Placid, where Coach Ollie was also serving as the Assistant Technical Delegate. On Saturday, the women competed in a 5k skate race, in a field combined with collegiate racers. This led to some fast and furious racing, where Avery Ellis led the way in 76th (31st U20). Phoebe Sweet was 80th (4th U18) and Jordi Kulis was 121st (11th U18). On Sunday, Finn Sweet was the lone Craftsbury representative, placing 5th place in the U16 boys 5k skate race.

Close to home, Mansfield Nordic hosted their annual Duathlon, which was well-attended by ...

Clare Egan and Susan Dunklee began World Cup 6 this past week with a 15k individual race. Clare was the top American finisher in the women's race placing 59th with 6 misses. She was followed by Susan in 71st. Susan was the only American to qualify for the mass start race in which she placed 24th with 5 misses.

After stage four she was in 25th, but she was able to overtake France's Anais Bescond in the final lap to place 24th. She skied the 16th fastest course time of the day.

DEC Lake Meeting

Saturday, January 21, 10:00am – tomorrow - the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) will be holding a public meeting in the Craftsbury Academy Gym. This past summer there were safety violations - specifically high-speed boats traveling too close to human-powered boats. These violations, taken in the context of ever-growing lake use by boats of all kinds, have raised concern at the State level, and they are considering establishing new rules for the lake. The Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is spearheading that process, and is gathering input from stakeholders about whether and how rule-making can reduce conflicts among users of Great Hosmer Pond.

The Outdoor Center’s hope is to continue to offer programming of all kinds on Big Hosmer, as we have for over 40 ...

Volunteers needed: Marathon 2017

Over the years the Craftsbury Outdoor Center has been the grateful recipient of many volunteers' donated time, energy and skills. We are pleased to announce exciting new opportunities to be a part of the action this winter. We have a niche for almost everyone, regardless of your interest or age, and the vast majority of these opportunities do NOT require you to be a skier - only to be a friendly, generous representative of the NEK!

The Craftsbury Marathon is our largest one-day event and offers a special fund-raising opportunity for volunteers and non-profit organizations. Individual volunteers get lunch and an entry in our year-end Volunteer Raffle Drawing, plus $5 for each volunteer hour you put in will go towards a donation to one of this year's selected charities:
