Ski-O 2018

Over 60 Ski-Orienteering (Ski-O) World Cup athletes and 120 world masters took to the Craftsbury Outdoor Center trails last week for four days of racing. This was by far the most international race that the Center has hosted, and the last time the Ski-O World Cup raced in the U.S. was in 2012 in Truckee, California. With 16 countries' flags flying high above the start and finish hill all week, the ski venue was transformed into an international arena. While walking around the start area, Nordic center, and wax trailers, more foreign languages were heard than English making for a unique week for anyone skiing at the Craftsbury Outdoor Center.

Skiers started off with the sprint race on Tuesday with Andrey Lamov from Russia winning the men’s race and Tove Alexandersson from Sweden ...
