Demo the Smoothie2

10 Apr 2007 @7:52

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.

The Craftsbury Connection

27 Mar 2007 @12:37

As you may have heard, Dartmouth won their first NCAA ski title in 31 years a couple of weeks ago. The Hardwick Gazette interviewed Coach Thompson about the Craftsbury Connection - the 3 current CNSC alums who are skiing for Dartmouth currently, soon to be joined by 2 more next fall. Here's a .pdf of that article. Go Big Green! go arrow

Touring Center is Closed...check in on weekend.

27 Mar 2007 @12:28

We had another great weekend of spring skiing this past weekend and we hope to be open again this coming weekend (March 30). But sadly, we won't be open this week for skiing. With any luck, we'll serve up another weekend of the same great spring mix of early morning glaze and corn by midday that we've enjoyed recently.

So, keep your fingers crossed and check in with us on Friday for the current details. In the meantime, enjoy spring in Northern Vermont!

Still grooming

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.

Craftsbury Spring Fling Cross Country Ski Race Results March 10, 2007

12 Mar 2007 @9:33

Over 135 skiers participated in the annual Craftsbury Spring Fling ski race under typical mid-winter skiing conditions. With cold temperatures in the morning, Spring did arrive until later in the afternoon with a few rain drops and temperatures near 40 F. In the 30 km men's race, Eli Enman from Huntington, VT won in a time of 1:27:03 followed by Ryan Kerrigan (Moretown, VT ) and Tim Donahue (New York, NY). Six skiers battled it out for the 2 and 3 positions. Dorcas Wonsavage (Hanover, NH) won the women's 30 km in 1:39:37 followed by Kelsan Allan (Williston, VT) and Abbie Harris (Derby Line, VT).

SNOC Challenge Results

9 Mar 2007 @14:03

After some timing miscues, the results are in from the 3rd annual Stowe Craftsbury challenge, and the home team has finally reversed the alarming trend of butt-whippings they had endured from the previous years. Craftsbury won 23 to 39 in the 5k classic race. Sadly, the timing was never rescued, but the winner completed the course in something on the order of 13 and changenot too bad, in a shockingly fast kind of way. go arrow

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!

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".

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

23 Dec 2006 @0:33

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.

Craftsbury Coach wins in elite LM4

Danish National Women's (and Craftsbury) coach Bo Vestergaard won this year's LM4- at the Elite level at the Danish National Championships, by a solid 7 seconds.

Bo coaches with us mid-summer, when his duties at the Danish squad allow him some free time. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find an English language coverage of the regatta, but congratulations all the same! Bo is no stranger to the podium however with World Championship golds from the LM8+ in 92 and 95.

The Greatest Show on Water has wrapped up for another year. This year had it all: crashes, weather (gnarly & idyllic), and great racing. Craftsbury Coach (oh yeah, and National Team Member) Sloan DuRoss won in the Champ 2x with Sam Stitt, Carol Bower got podium time and Daniela Nachazelova was second in the lightweight single.

On the coaching side, Norm's crews both had 5th places, Kevin and Larry's boys had their usual strong showing, and I'm sure I'm missing lots of other people's hard work, and I apologize. If you have a result you're particularly proud of or would like to highlight, drop us a line. We'd love to share your results with the rest of the Craftsbury family.

17 Oct 2006 @10:44

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:

  • What did you enjoy most about your time at Craftsbury?
    I enjoyed the scenery very much! The Coaches were very friendly and helped me to improve on my sculling abilities a lot. The way they explained things it was easy to understand. I also loved the fact that they taped us so we could see ...

This summer, the Sculling Center partnered with Craftsbury Academy to offer local kids the chance to try sculling. Meeting twice weekly for five weeks, our dozen or so novices from the surrounding area spent lots of time in the single, and quickly moved to the double and quad. The program culminated in games and drills to test boatmanship in the single and with a barbeque in August.

One HYRC participant, John Dunbar, joined us in a weekend program in the fall courtesy of the Center, in an effort to further his development as a sculler.

The Center would like to thank Rick Thomas, Athletic Director at Craftsbury Academy for his tireless work in recruiting and on water coaching, as well as Rob Libby and Nancy Moran for their contributions as well in making this a successful time for ...

Last winter many of you were impressed with Craftsbury's quality of skiing under difficult snow conditions. Those of you in-the-know are aware that this miracle" was actually a due to a huge amount manual snow farming labor by grooming staff and volunteers. The Center is committed to providing the best quality skiing possible and is investing in some heavy duty snow farming equipment and trail improvements to make good on this promise.

This fall the "Core Trails" as well as "Sams" and "Ruthies Runs" are being widened and ditched. John Brodhead has been consulting with our land owners to secure permission to do the necessary work, Eric Hanson has been cutting trees, Wilbur Rowell has been salvaging usable trees for lumber, and Keith Woodward has been running an excavator to remove ...

The exception was Craftsbury Outdoor Center in the Northeast Kingdom wherebusiness is up 12 percent over last season. Thanks to careful stockpiling of snow when it fell, the Nordic center was able to save snow and then redistribute it over trails.

"The center hosted seven races that were moved from other locations wheresnow was scarce, said John Brodhead, director of skiing at Craftsbury.

Middlebury NCAA Carnival

25 Feb 2006 @13:50

For the third weekend in a row, Craftsbury was the center of East CoastNordic Ski Racing. This weekend, the Center hosted the Middlebury Carnival,which served as the NCAA Eastern Collegiate Championships, so the stakeswere higher than usual. These races were the final qualifying opportunityfor those trying to secure a spot in the upcoming NCAA NationalChampionships in Colorado on March 11th.

Middlebury, the home team, struck first with Garrot Kuzzy and Evelyn Dongwinning their respective skate races on Friday.

But Dartmouth's depth was too much and with solid showings on Fridaycombined w/dominant efforts on Saturday's 10/5k classic race, the Big Greenhad captured all four races in the team scoring. In yet another homecomingfor several CNSC skiers, Elsa Sargent was fourth in the 5k ...

2006 TD Banknorth Craftsbury Marathon

1 Feb 2006 @14:04

We were fortunate again this year to have a full roster of 1000 participants. We certainly had our doubts that we would be able to pull it off on the scheduled date, Saturday January 28th, considering the almost weekly meltdowns throughout January. Fortunately our dedicated trail grooming staff had spent literally 100's of hours shoveling, trucking, and plowing snow onto the trail since December giving us an almost indestructible base. When decision time came on January 24th we were able to give the go-ahead on a modified course starting at the Craftsbury Outdoor Center, making use of the Craftsbury Outdoor Center's intensive snow farming on a 20 kilometer loop, and finishing on Craftsbury Common. The day was sunny and warm with spectacular starts on Lake Hosmer. The trail side ...

Scholastic Sweep Rowers Improve by Sculling at Craftsbury

1 Apr 2004 @23:00

Craftsbury's sculling program is well established in teaching high school students the skills of rowing singles. Sculling is the best and fastest way to improve your rowing in eights and fours. The summer season at Craftsbury sees high school and college students coming from all over the country to learn how to move a boat better. We have many top high school and scholastic coaches on staff. Improving skills in small boats helps students make big leaps in their sweep rowing programs because they learn balance, blade work, and boat feel during the course of the week. Time spent sculling is priceless if you want to get a better seat in your Varsity 8+ next year.

Craftsbury's programs are intensive yet fun. Set on an ideal lake with the dock only a 3-minute walk from your lodging, ...
