GRP Biathlon at North American Rollerski Biathlon Championships

Nine members of the GRP biathlon and ski teams raced this past weekend in Jericho, VT at the North American Rollerski Biathlon Championships. Though thunderstorms were in the forecast, the rain mostly held off and the biathletes faced heat and humidity instead. These trials races, along with another set of races in October, are used to choose athletes who will join a US Biathlon camp in Canmore in October. From there, USBA will pick the World Cup team for the upcoming season. Two of the GRP biathletes, Susan Dunklee and Clare Egan, are already prequalified for the upcoming World Cup season, but the rest of the GRP can use these races as an opportunity to demonstrate their rollerski speed and early season shooting to the National Team coaches.

On Saturday, the women raced a 7.5k sprint ...

Kingdom Farm & Food Rando

Kingdom Farm and Food Days celebrates the local farmers, producers, and creators of the Northeast Kingdom. From fiber arts to cheese to distilleries to veggies, meat and more, the NEK has someone who makes it and wants to share it with you August 19-21! 

We're offering another way to see the Kingdom, from the seat of a bicycle! Saturday, August 20th, 2:00pm:  c'mon up, visit farms in the morning, ride bikes in the afternoon, then check out more events around the area - a great weekend, no matter how you slice it.

The Event: Grab your cross/dirt-road/Mountain bike and our cue sheet for an afternoon of fun. You'll get a time, but the event is really not competitive. Think more like fun group ride or Strava-ing your evening ride than a race. Post-ride re-fuel, with some of the best ...

New cabins are open!

The first of August marked the much awaited opening of the new hillside cabins. Nestled amongst a field of wildflowers, the new complex includes ten rentable living units and one shared kitchen space, all complete with the latest green technologies. The cabins will ultimately replace Tamarack Lodge, but currently they are providing more private housing options for guests and campers. They are designed in such a way to maximize flexibility and allow for various group sizes and year round use. They provide easy access to both the lake and ski trails, as well as all the amenities that the Center offers.

The cabins were inspired by European lodging styles, with one main room that holds two beds that can be pushed together into one, as well as a table and chairs. Each cabin is equipped with ...
