MTB - done, Fatbikes - begun

The bad news:  As of November 17, the 2017 MTB season is done at Craftsbury. It's been a great season, and thanks for joining us. 

The good news this winter at Craftsbury:  fatbiking! We're happy to announce that we'll be formally welcoming fatbikes to selected trails and our singletrack, under defined circumstances. Some rules:

  • Skiers and snowshoers have right of way. Stop at all intersections with ski trails. We're new users, give respect to get respect.
  • When on ski trails, fatbikers must stay to the edge and stay off the classic track.
  • Respect our landowners; only ride on designated fatbiking trails.
  • Don’t ride anything narrower than 4” tires
  • Don’t ride if the 24-hour snowfall total is more than 6”
  • Don’t ride if the temp is 30F or above
  • Don’t ride if you are leaving ...

Clare placed 11th and Kelsey finished 16th. In the second sprint race, Susan placed 5th overall with clean shooting and was the first American finisher.

Update: Ski Swap

Inquiring minds want to know- when is this year's ski swap going to be?! Alas, not this year! We will likely host one next year. We are thinking a two year rotation will allow us to accumulate enough items to make the sale robust and worthwhile each time it's held. So, stay tuned for more details next fall!
