Run2Ski 2013

For the second year in a row, runners came to Craftsbury to enjoy the best a winter weekend has to offer: miles of  groomed ski trails to explore and beautiful winter running conditions. Our intrepid group received top notch coaching from GRP skiers Maria Stuber, Bryan Cook and Olympian Marc Gilbertson. For four days we honed our classic and skate skiing skills and we logged over 100 miles on the roads and trails. There wasn’t much better than Sunday’s skiing in bright sunshine on perfectly groomed corduroy trails.

The weekend highlights included our classic Ridge Run 10 miler under blue skies, watching  hundreds of skiers contest the Marathon, mouth watering meals, and a convivial party in Cabin C where Patsy and Dave were staying.

See you next year runner/skiers!
