Range and Rollerloop FAQ

Q: What’s all the mess and dirt and rocks in the upper field?
A: We are building a rollerski loop and a 15-point biathlon range in the high ground at the south end of the upper field. The creation of the space for the range required both excavation and some blasting.

Beyond the upper field, we are also going to be paving a few kilometers of the south end of Lemon’s, the sprint loop, and Round-a-Bit which will create beginner, intermediate and advanced rollerski terrain away from cars. We are especially eager to get our junior skiers off the roads. We expect parts of the paved loop will serve other purposes as well, such as access to the woods for people with mobility or physical disabilities, or a place to learn to ride a road bike.

Q: What is the big rig that is out there making ...

Join us Sunday for Tour de Borderlands #6: Return of the Shredi

We are stoked to welcome riders from across the galaxy to Craftsbury this Sunday, as part of Bike the Borderlands. In addition to fun group rides, bike games, and even lunch (if you sign up soon), we're also hiding Star Wars figurines on the trails for a treasure hunt.

Find a figurine, bring it back to registration, and you'll win a prize. The cooler the figurine (in our opinion), the more valuable the prize from local sponsors like the Front Seat Coffee, the C Village, and Craftsbury General Stores and beyond. Don't bother with the Kessel Run, just sign up to join us this Sunday for a haul any bounty hunter would be proud of.

Lunch sign up closes tonight, Thursday, at 8pm. Day of race registration is available, though no dining hall lunch is available day of.

Weigh in on VT Outdoor Rec

SCORP, Vermont's Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan, is a strategic plan process the state needs to go through every 5 year-ish. It is crucial to have this plan because it allows VT to access federal funds like the RTP, Recreational Trails Program, plus it's a helpful tool for organizations around the state to point to when applying for funds. Take the survey here.
