GRP Rowers Back on the Water at First National Selection Regatta

Spring is here for the rowers, even if it may not look like it on frozen Great Hosmer. The GRP squad finished a six-week training camp in Clemson, South Carolina before making the trip up to New Jersey for the first National Selection Regatta (NSR). The first NSR has World Cup spots on the line for the men’s and women’s heavyweight doubles, while Craftsbury also had competitors in the men’s heavyweight and lightweight single. Racing began on Wednesday with a time trial for all events that saw all Craftsbury boats advancing to the next round of racing. Thursday morning brought high winds that cancelled racing after conditions deteriorated during the early heats. Elizabeth Sonshine and Maggie Fellows braved the elements to finish 5th in their heat in the women’s double (the last ...

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!
