Results: Checkpoint Challenge 2016

11 Oct 2016 @20:59

Thanks to the 36 competitors who braved the impending rain and the unpredictable challenges during our 2016 Craftsbury Checkpoint Challenge! The organizers and station managers, primarily GRP skiers and biathletes, enjoyed setting up 10 tricky stations and sharing laughs with the competitors as they strove to complete team-building tasks. Nine teams of four members each ran around on the COC trail system, navigating their way to stations marked on the map provided, where they could complete tasks to earn points. The winning team, Trump That (Keith Woodward, Eric Schulz, Eric Remick, Peter Duval), earned 323 points within the 2 hour time limit. Trump That earned points at 9 of the 10 stations, and though certain stations like Flag Matching gave them a bit of difficulty, they shone ...

Matching Donations Being Accepted to the Kathy Wright Memorial Scholarship Fund

8 Sep 2016 @8:00

The Craftsbury Outdoor Center is excited to announce that an anonymous donor has recently pledged to match up to $5,000 in donations to the junior scholarship fund. The fund is being renamed the Kathy Wright Memorial Scholarship Fund in honor of Kathy Wright, a member of our community who passed away in March 2016.

Craftsbury believes that access to the sport of cross country skiing should not be restricted by income. Skiing is an expensive sport, but we are lucky to be part of an amazing community that shares our vision of access and affordability. Scholarships are made possible by the generosity of many families that support the Outdoor Center, and go towards offsetting the costs of ski programs or race/camp travel for Craftsbury junior and BKL skiers in need.

Forest Steward Panel on Tuesday September 20th

7 Sep 2016 @17:30

Join us Tuesday September 20th at 7:00pm in the Craftsbury Outdoor Center Activity Center for the 5th 2016 Summer Forestry Lecture. This lecture will take the form of a land stewardship panel presented by Michael Snyder (Commissioner of Forests, Parks, and Recreation), Jared Nunery (Orleans County Forester), and some of our local forestry heroes and landowners. The goal of this lecture series as a whole is to provide attendees with a better understanding of the Black River Watershed. The vast majority of the Black River Watershed is privately owned, meaning the management of the land we all love is in the hands of many different stewards. This particular presentation will aim to bring the human aspect of the watershed into the fold through the sharing of individual stories that ...

New cabins are open!

7 Sep 2016 @14:47

The first of August marked the much awaited opening of the new hillside cabins. Nestled amongst a field of wildflowers, the new complex includes ten rentable living units and one shared kitchen space, all complete with the latest green technologies. The cabins will ultimately replace Tamarack Lodge, but currently they are providing more private housing options for guests and campers. They are designed in such a way to maximize flexibility and allow for various group sizes and year round use. They provide easy access to both the lake and ski trails, as well as all the amenities that the Center offers.

The cabins were inspired by European lodging styles, with one main room that holds two beds that can be pushed together into one, as well as a table and chairs. Each cabin is equipped ...

GRP Biathlon at North American Rollerski Biathlon Championships

19 Aug 2016 @15:07

Nine members of the GRP biathlon and ski teams raced this past weekend in Jericho, VT at the North American Rollerski Biathlon Championships. Though thunderstorms were in the forecast, the rain mostly held off and the biathletes faced heat and humidity instead. These trials races, along with another set of races in October, are used to choose athletes who will join a US Biathlon camp in Canmore in October. From there, USBA will pick the World Cup team for the upcoming season. Two of the GRP biathletes, Susan Dunklee and Clare Egan, are already prequalified for the upcoming World Cup season, but the rest of the GRP can use these races as an opportunity to demonstrate their rollerski speed and early season shooting to the National Team coaches.

On Saturday, the women raced a 7.5k sprint ...

It was a successful week for all of the GRP members. John, one of Cincinnati’s own hometown heroes, won the elite single and 500m dash, racing against the 2016 Indian olympic, single sculler and the 2012 Mexican olympic, single ...

Heated Competition for GRP men at Last Chance Regatta and World Cup II

3 Jun 2016 @18:23

At the end of April, the Men’s quad of Ben Davison, Ben Dann, John Graves, and Peter Graves and the Men’s double, with Steve Whelpley and Willy Cowles, qualified to compete in the Final Olympic Qualification Regatta, or as it's more commonly called:  the “Regatta of Death.” This was the last opportunity for the United States to qualify these boat categories for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This regatta is considered one of the most competitive events for elite rowing, with many of the winners usually winning Olympic medals later in the summer. Only the top two boats from these events would qualify.

Although both boats showed impressive speeds through the regatta, neither were able to snag one of the top two spots. The Men’s quad finished 4th, with a time of ...

Juniors End Seasons at SuperTour Finals and Spring Fling Events

27 Mar 2016 @21:27

This weekend brought two chances for Craftsbury juniors to contest their final races of the year: both on the same course, but two very different races. On Saturday, Phoebe Sweet competed in the SuperTour Finals Long Distance National Championships junior race, where the girls raced 17k. The junior race was held in conjunction with the open women’s race, but instead of racing 9 laps for the full 30k, the younger girls headed into the finishing lanes after 5 laps. Out of the 19 girls, and in her first race of this long distance, Phoebe finished a competitive 5th, breaking up what would have otherwise been a top nine Stratton Mountain School streak. Phoebe held an incredibly consistent pace, remaining in 5th place for the entirety of the race. Congrats to Phoebe for toeing the mass ...

GRP Skiers Wrap Up Season at SuperTour Finals

27 Mar 2016 @17:36

The Green Racing Project women wrapped up the 2015-2016 season with the last two races at SuperTour Finals/US Distance Nationals in Craftsbuy- a mixed club relay and 30k classic mass start. With a bit of new snow, the trails were in great condition and the 3.4k loop held up very well through the end of the series.

For Thursday's mixed relay, teams usually field a 4-person relay with 2 men and 2 women from each club. However, as the GRP currently has no male skiers, the women teamed up with men from other clubs to compete. Ida Sargent and Caitlin Patterson had a great result in their relay; they partnered with Noah Hoffman and Tad Elliott to take 2nd place, just behind the team from APU. Ida had the fastest female time in the classic leg and Caitlin the second fastest in the freestyle ...

Juniors:  clear your calendars for Wednesday, 23 March after school, and come on up to the Center for an afternoon Speedcamp with US Ski Team members Andy Newell and Simi Hamilton of Team SMS T2. Beyond being some of the best nordic skiers the US has produced, Andy and Simi are some of the best athletes you'll meet. Together with other high level skiers they'll be covering technique, cornering, downhills and transitions - all areas you can grab some seconds in a race to recover, close a gap, or make your move on competitors. Besides, skiing faster is always FUN! Grab your skate skis, boots, poles and some water, get up up to the Center and get ready for an afternoon of ripping around on skis!

15 Mar 2016 @10:18

The 2015-2016 FIS Cross Country World Cup season came to an end this Saturday, finishing in North America for the first time ever in Canmore, Alberta. GRP skiers Ida Sargent and Kaitlynn Miller, both Northeast Kingdom locals, completed the tour, and for Miller, the first World Cup races of her career.

Following the eastern portion of the Ski Tour Canada in Montreal and Quebec, the tour moved west to Canmore and continued with a classic sprint on March 8th. Ida Sargent qualified for the rounds, as she has been consistently doing all season, with the 18th fastest time. Kaitlynn Miller came the closest to qualifying she has so far with a 38th. Ida went on to take 5th in her heat, good for 22nd on the day. With the completion of sprint events in the 2015-2016 season, Ida was ranked 23rd ...

Juniors Succesfully Take on Cable Junior Nationals

14 Mar 2016 @19:54

Late last week, 6 Craftsbury juniors and Coach Anna made the trip to Cable, Wisconsin for the 2016 Junior National Championships. They expected interval start racing, mass start racing, sprint racing, and a 3k relay race. Due to bright sun, soaring temperatures, and melting snow, this didn’t quite happen. The Tuesday classic individual start race went off without a hitch. The girls raced a 5k. For the U16’s, Callie Young was 5th and Phoebe Sweet was 13th. In the U18/ U20 race, Rena Schwartz was 35th (23rd U18), Avery Ellis was 43rd (30th U18), and Alex Lawson was 56th (39th U18). The U18/ U20 boys raced 10k, where Anders Hanson was 61st (39th U18). Tuesday was always supposed to be an off day, but Wednesday was then added as another day to rest the body (and shovel some snow).

5 Juniors Race at U16 Championships

14 Mar 2016 @10:52

Following the theme of this winter, the U16 Championships underwent a series of changes in order to make the event run smoothly. None of these changes seemed to flap the Craftsbury crew who all had great weekends of racing. The event was scheduled for Black Mountain of Maine, in Rumford, but a stadium that was wetter than desired  and a little less snow than ideal necessitated a move to the Pine Hill Trails at Gould Academy in Bethel.

The series kicked off on Friday with a 5k interval start skate race. Rebecca Thompson and Ruby Lamb were both in the top 10, in 7th and 10th,respectively. Kyle Marie Hekeler was 23rd, Claire Ellis, a late qualifier to the event, was 31st, and Loren Searles was 77th. Saturday was purely classical technique. The morning race was a 5k, where Rebecca was ...

A magical event occurred at Great Glen on Saturday and Sunday: hundreds of young skiers gathered for winter fun and snow fell! This past weekend, the White Mountain Magic themed Bill Koch Festival was held at the Great Glen Trails in Gorham, New Hampshire. Keeping in line with the Festival’s whimsical theme, festivities kicked off with the opening parade, full of magicians, wizards, and witches.  Although racing was a focal point of the Festival, there were a slew of other fun activities for kids to participate in, such as a fairy house trail, a scavenger hunt, face painting, an obstacle course, tubing, and the naturally magical ski tour, complete with snacks and goodie bags!

It’s not often that the FIS Cross Country World Cup makes its way to North America, much less for an extended race series. This year, the World Cup actually finishes in North America for the first time ever as part of the 8 race Ski Tour Canada. GRP skiers Ida Sargent and Kaitlynn Miller are part of the team representing the US, which includes additional start spots for Nation’s Group skiers outside of regular allotted World Cup start spots.

The Tour opened March 1st with a freestyle sprint in Gatineau, Quebec. Ida Sargent was able to qualify for the heats with a 28th place in the qualifier, and Kaitlynn Miller took 61st in her first ever World Cup start. Sargent had a good position in the early part of her quarterfinal but then tangled with Swedish skier Hanna Falk and ended up ...

BKL'ers Brave Chilly Temps for Midget NorAm Success

16 Feb 2016 @20:12

Last Friday, Anna and Ollie made a journey to the Youth Championship NorAm (“Midgets”) in St-Gabriel-de-Brandon, Quebec with nine intrepid youngsters. Unfortunately, this coincided perfectly with the arrival of the -20 degree cold front, making for frigid skiing conditions. On Saturday, the races were cancelled and instead the skiers bundled up for a chilly afternoon ski. Sunday, with it still too cold to race, the organizers held a fun indoor “race.” This contest consisted of a 100m running sprint, 30 seconds of box jumps, 30 seconds of sit-ups, and a shuttle run. Across all ages, Quincy Massey- Bierman was the female champion in each of the categories!

On Monday, temperatures rose high enough to kick off the real racing. The Midget Garcons (born in 2002) raced 4k. Brian ...

Green Racing Project skiers had a solid showing in the second to last Scandinavian World Cups in Stockholm and Falun, Sweden, topped by Caitlin Patterson’s 25th place in the 10k freestyle mass start.

The first race was a classic sprint in Stockholm, the capital, which is traditionally attended by the King of Sweden. Overall the American women did not have their best day, with only two women qualifying in the top 30 and none advancing past the semifinals. Ida Sargent, coming off a cold, placed 49th in the qualifier and Caitlin Patterson was 58th.

Two days later, the World Cup moved to Falun, site of last winter’s World Championships for a 5k classic individual start. Caitlin took 40th place and was 5th American on the day, just 1 second behind Vermonter Liz Stephen, who placed ...

In Friday's 7.5k sprint, Hannah had the top American women's finish in 28th with two misses. Susan wasn't far behind in 35th. Conditions were blustery which made shooting a challenge. Susan was the only American starter in Saturday's mass start race. She placed 30th.

Both Susan and Hannah competed in Sunday's mixed relay along with teammates Tim Burke, and Lowell Bailey. Susan scrambled and got the team off to a strong start.
