GRP Ski at Seefeld World Cup and Craftsbury SuperTour

The 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics are just over a week away, but the Green Racing Project skiers have plenty of races in the meantime to keep them busy. Over the weekend, three GRP skiers competed in Seefeld, Austria for the last World Cups before the Olympics. Back stateside, five GRP skiers and biathletes raced at home in the SuperTour in Craftsbury.

Seefeld World Cup
On the tails of an all-classic race weekend in Planica, this weekend was all about the freestyle races, with a freestyle sprint Saturday and 10/15k mass start on Sunday. In the women’s qualifier, Ida Sargent placed 37th, just over half a second from the top 30.

CNSC Juniors at the Marathon!

Many of our BKL’ers and juniors, as well as GRP alums, contested Saturday’s annual Craftsbury Marathon. The race was on a 16k loop, and racers could go around once, twice, or three times for 16k, 33k, or 48k.

The younger racers did one lap of the 16k loop but were still treated to the same challenging terrain as the rest of the participants. Finn Sweet was victorious in the men’s 16k, while Claire Ellis was 8th (5th junior) in the women’s race. The BKL race was a sea of green with 16 of our BKL’ers toeing the line! Trey Jones was 1st across the line and Cormac Leahy was close behind in 3rd. Orion Cenkl was 10th, Linden Stelma Leonard 11th, Leo Circosta 12th, and Charlie Krebs 13th. Owen Jones was 16th and Sage Grossi was 17th. A gaggle of friends crossed the line in close ...

North Wolcott is now open!

Update:  31 Jan 18 - North Wolcott Rd is now open to traffic again!

Are you visiting us via Stowe/Morrisville? If you're approaching that way, chances are you're being directed to use the North Wolcott Rd to get here. The only issue is that during the flooding of January 12, that section of road was washed out. Travelers have several options (all written as coming from the southwest):

Town of Wolcott recommended/least detour: 
On the North Wolcott Rd, turn LEFT on to West Hill after 0.8miles
West Hill turns right and becomes Sand Hill Rd after 2.7miles
Slight right to stay on Sand Hill Rd, which T's into North Wolcott Rd after another 0.8miles

Town Hill:
From VT-Rt 15E, continue past North Wolcott Rd, taking the second left for Town Hill Rd.
