Marathon Delay & Course Change

1 Feb 2008 @14:00

The Marathon start has been delayed 2 hours. Registration will open at 8:30 a.m. and buses will start departing at 8:40 a.m. The last bus for the race will leave at 10:00 a.m. and the last bus for the tourers will be at noon. We highly recommend that tourers start no later than 11:30 so that they don't miss the cut off time. We also have changed the lunch, awards and cut off times. All will be 1 hour later.

Additionally, after discussions with the technical delegate, we've shortenedthe 50k course. Please consult the map link. In brief, we've cut off the northernmost 5k of the course:Max's Pond and the upper lake. We feel that conditions after the projectedweather event will have deteriorated too far to use that part of the course. go arrow

PistenBully weather

24 Dec 2007 @19:41

This morning is a great example of why we invest in state of the art grooming machines like the PB100. Last night, we had rain and wind. This morning, we fired up the PistenBully and have tilled it all back up to produce more great skiing: fast, granular fun.

We haven't gotten to all of the trails yet this morning, but we'll be adding k's throughout the day as the grooming crew makes its rounds - our gift to you this holiday season.

That's been the pattern here. You can see how much snow we have in the pictures, shot about 10 days ago. In the intervening time, we've had an additional 3 FEET OF SNOW, including 19 this past weekend alone. Crazy.

Trails Open All Week!

2 Dec 2007 @16:08

The place for nordic skiing in VT right now is Craftsbury. We've decided to keep trails open during the week! So, from here on, the trails will be open 9-4. Trail counts should go up if the weather pans out, but in the interim, we're at 5.5k of skate groomed trails. To celebrate our early opening, we'll continue to offer reduced trail pass rates as well. The cover is good, and trails fun. It may not be time to break out your new high end skis yet, but there's lots of good skiing to be had out there.

You've asked for it, and now we have it: Pepa's stretching routine from her flexibility lecture is now available for download. This illustrated routine is designed to cover all the necessary muscle groups used in rowing using the two stage stretching technique. There's a brief introduction by Pepa, so don't worry if you don't remember all the specifics.

We intend to offer a DVD with this and other content by this coming season, so it will keep getting better. Until then, keep limber after your erg sessions with these poses. We've uploaded a small and large download, so if you're bandwidth challenged you can still easily get the file.

Snow update

21 Nov 2007 @13:29

Another day, more snow: that's the pattern we've enjoyed for the past week or so. Since our previous post, we've picked up another 4-6 and have been packing our base down wherever possible. Some nice cold nights have been helping the cause, throw in a very light rain yesterday that made everything FAST and we're in pretty decent shape. Check out the pictures from the past several days. The ones with Davis in the orange tocque are from this morning.

At this point, we are not open, but keep checking back as depending on the results of the next several storms that can change quite rapidly. In the interim, Happy Thanksgiving from all of at Craftsbury. We're thankful that so many have joined us in the past year and hope to see even more this winter.

Unfortunately, the Schuylkill was cancelled for the second year in a row. But the regatta wasn't a washout for Ilsa Loetzbeier who won a free week of camp in 2008!

The Hooch saw much nicer weather and water conditions in Chattanooga. Vanessa Kemp of Athens, GA stopped by the booth, enjoyed a cookie and won a free week as well. A nice cap to a rather idyllic weekend of rowing.

Touring Center Upgrades

8 Nov 2007 @8:32

The Touring Center has evolved again. Long time Craftsbury skiers have already seen several iterations of the TC, but this is the most comprehensive one to date. The building has been thoroughly revamped. The new arrangement nearly doubles the space available for seating, offers expanded and improved wax facilities, houses an expanded rental selection, and features a new lunch spot that looks out on the skating pond from the second story of the TC.

You can get a sense of the improvements we've made looking through the photos, but the best way to experience it will be to come and spend time with us this winter.

Boathouse news: Demos

20 Jun 2007 @11:46

It's always exciting to be able to offer gear from around the rowing world. This summer, we're lucky to have Sykes participating in our demo program again. If you haven't met Tom Gallagher before, track him down at the next regatta. Tom's working to make this Aussie brand a household name in the US rowing community, and is one of the most pleasant, accommodating people in what is already a small, friendly industry. They have a convenient shell rental program for clubs and some great boats too.

This summer, we have two shells from Tom, a MW and a LW single, both Mould 26 models. Both feature Sykes' HKCC construction, a Kevlar laminate with carbon reinforcing over honeycomb core, with carbon fittings.

As we mentioned in February, our friends down the road in Morrisville have been hard at ...

Stotesbury Winner!

22 May 2007 @8:59

Craftsbury joined an estimated 5000+ high school rowers from the US and Canada over the weekend in Philadelphia for the 81st Stotesbury Cup. Some fine racing all weekend, with any number of Craftsbury campers making the finals in several events. You can catch the results at the official website.

It also provided us an opportunity to pick up two new Sykes singles from Tom Gallager, as well as retrieving our own doubles. A productive trip all the way round.

But few had any more productive a regatta than Kristina Wolf of Holy Spirit HS. Kristina won a free week at Craftsbury this summer. Congratulations!!

As skiers, many of us are concerned about the possibility of a lack of snow that global warming could represent. Here's a chance to take action and raise awareness of global warming. Saturday, April 14 is Step It Up Day. Thousands of people around the country are organizing actions, and all of these actions taken together will be the largest demonstration yet in the U.S. of concern about global warming. The Step It Up message is this: "Step it up Congress! Cut carbon 80% by 2050." In New England, NENSA is encouraging skiers to take part and take action.

How can you take part?

Summer Facilities Improvements

10 Apr 2007 @20:52

In addition to the ongoing improvements in guest accommodations like mattresses, furniture, and new planks on the docks, some more glamorous improvements will greet scullers this summer.

The biggest improvements will be in connectivity. This summer will see Craftsbury step into the late '90s as we'll offer wifi in Cedar lounge. While speeds will be more ISDN than OC3, it's a marked improvement over the current arrangement.

Another link to the rest of the world has been bolstered as well, as we now have cable in the Cedar Lounge. This is part of an upgrade to the video analysis facilities (including a bigger screen) in Cedar to make it easier for large groups to get their reviews in a timely manner.

An interesting thing I saw at CRASH-Bs came from our friends down the road in Morrisville. C2 has a new blade mold, the Smoothie 2. They do a much better job of describing it at the link above, but I was struck by the new curvature. You'll be able to find the new white blades in our demo program as well as possibly in the regular fleet. We're all excited to try the new blade shapes.

While you're there, C2 also has an interesting discussion of blade design theory and describes some protocol for testing as well. Whether you row C2 or not, these ideas are interesting to look at and think about as one makes decisions about equipment or rigging.

19 Mar 2007 @9:59

We received over a foot of snow this past weekend and it's re-invigorated our base. We have mid-winter conditions on 26k of trails (currently core trails and Ruthie's). Obviously, we aren't grooming everything, but the trails look like mid-February. The groomers are planning on grooming at least 2 core trails daily and one long trail so trail counts could go up through the week. Keep checking the snow report daily and come on up. Winter's still going strong!

Some great lodging deals are available as well. While our kitchen is closed, there's our individually kitchen-equipped cottages available at this time of year, at a deep discount - like 60% off! Call us for a late season getaway today, or check out the offseason rates at the bottom of this page.

Trinity College Winter Training Trip

2 Feb 2007 @12:59

This month, the Center was fortunate to host a group from Trinity College. The athletic department group brought good conditions, nineteen students and snow with them for their five day visit, and had the first annual Trinitasa-loppet at the end of their stay, capping a week of aerobic base and team building before members of the group start their winter work for a fast season.

The picture at left is taken moments before the start of the prestigious Trinitasa-loppet. The winner of the inaugural edition was rower Chris Wilson with a 34 second margin over the 3.5k course on fellow oarsman Peter Graves.

More surprising is that it wasn't the Tucson native, Head Craftsbury Running Coach Greg Wenneborg. Rather, it was Craftsbury Coach Eric Blake who ran a 2:26:44 to win the Dec.10 marathon by 12 minutes over his closest competitor. You can find full results here.

This marathon caps a great year for Eric. He is the world record treadmill marathon holder (2:21:40) and he won the 2006 USATF Mountain Championships (Mt Washington). All that and several weeks of Craftsbury too!

Congratulations Eric!

The spirit of winter '06-07

9 Jan 2007 @15:49

We came across this Jeff Danziger cartoon in the Barre-Montpelier Times Argus. It pretty well captures some of the effort we've been putting into the trails recently (see the snow farming news item for some pictures), except with more heavy equipment.

We have our fingers crossed as the temps have lowered to more seasonable levels, and there's a hint of snow in the forecast in the coming days. Longer term, some forecast models (I'm currently enamored of this weather blog) show a great rebound at the end of the month. In either case, the lakes are coming back aroundjust waiting for more white stuff.

Today, we're exerting a bunch of that special effort to continue to improve our trails. It's a snow farming day here at the Center. On an otherwise magnificent spring like day, we've got three trucks, a tractor and 7 guys with shovels moving snow from the center of fields, piles of snow, wherever to the trails. Yesterday saw lots of work to Lemon's Haunt and today, Race Loop is getting another coating from a very labor intensive, localized "snowstorm". I can personally vouch for their work, as I skied last night for an hour and a ...

While conditions weren't what we're all accustomed to for this time of year, they were fast and fun.

Today we're snow farming as much as possible to shore up our trails. We could have some nice spring conditions in the coming days, why not check us out?

Craftsbury, Geotourism and VPR

26 Dec 2006 @13:57

Listeners to Vermont Public Radio may catch a story highlighting the Center and other area business' efforts to promote geotourism, a concept championed by the National Geographic Society. National Geographic describes geotourism as a form of "tourism that sustains or enhances the geographical character of a place—its environment, culture, aesthetics, heritage, and the well-being of its residents." Vermont was named the 6th best place world wide for geotourism, and the best in the United States.

While we have our own names for it, the Center has worked to this end in many ways, like the Green Hotels in the Green Mountain State program, a partnership of businesses committed to small environmental footprints, or John's work on milfoil eradication. Or more mundane projects, like ...

Making lemonade out of lemons

We've been suffering the same winter blahs as the rest of the east coast, but thanks to hard work and perseverance, we're skiing. We got a dusting of snow the other morning, so our crack staff of groomers were dispatched to the Little Hosmer pond with snow blowers. We've snow blowed a loop onto Little Hosmer Pond (currently with 4+ inches of ice) and now we have a 3k U around the southern perimeter of the lake for skiing. As an added benefit, ice skaters now have a groomed path immediately next to the ski trail. Check out the pictures, and see our snow report. go arrow

Beyond the Charles, we kept a full regatta schedule this fall, attending the Schuylkill, Hooch and Head of the Lake. Sadly, the Schuylkill was totally rained out as most of you have probably heard, but we had a great time at the Hooch and Head of the Lake (though it was scrubbed at the last minute too).

Our winner for the Hooch was Katie Moran of the Sarasota Scullers, and Tim Mahoney of Seattle won the free week we offered for Head of the Lake spectators. Congratulations to both of you, and a reminder to all the rest of you to come find us at your next regatta and try your luck! If nothing else you can enjoy a cookie.

As has happened for the past several years, the Craftsbury Sculling Center offered two scholarships to the Boston organization, G-Row. G-Row is a program of Community Rowing Inc. in Boston that was founded in 1998 under the vision of Olympic gold medallist Holly Metcalf. Today, the program reaches over 200 girls from the Boston public schools each year.

This year, G-Row selected Sasha Coleman and Sienna DeSantis on the basis of their applications.

Sienna spoke with Regan Bernhard about her experience:
