LIVE Webcam

Pictures are worth a thousand words, right? Think of all the words we've just added to our grooming and snow report with our new live webcam! If you head over the snow report or our YouTube Channel, you can check out the live Craftsbury webcam! This past week we got our first cam up, focused on the lower soccer field/lower stadium. You'll see there's still a lot of snow out there, and some die-hard skiers too. We'll start with this camera to try and work out the bugs, but hope to add additional view or two so that you can follow our progress throughout the year with snowmaking, grooming and even some coverage of the scene at races. Enjoy!

GRP Skiers End Season at SuperTour Finals

Sun Valley, ID is a favorite location for Spring Series, the SuperTour races which mark the end of the competition season for most US Nordic skiers. With sunny skies, spring skiing conditions, and the strongest domestic fields of the 2014-2015 season, this year was no different. The Green Racing Project sent 5 women and 4 men to race SuperTour Finals and US Distance Nationals Championships, held at Galena Lodge in Sun Valley over the week of March 21-26th.

10/15k Classic Individual
The GRP kicked things off on Saturday the 21st of March with a 10/15k classic individual. Cold overnight temperatures combined with warm days to create a treacherously icy track, made especially challenging by klister conditions. On the GRP women’s side, only Caitlin Patterson and Emily Dreissigacker ...
