SpeedCamp with Newell and Hamilton

17 Mar 2016 @17:26

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 ...

Patterson Scores First World Cup Points in Falun, Sweden

15 Feb 2016 @12:09

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 ...

8 Feb 2016 @12:12

After a brief hiatus, biathlon World Cup racing action resumed this past week in Canmore, Alberta with impressive results coming from GRP biathletes Susan Dunklee and Hannah Dreissigacker.

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.

GRP Biathletes Post Strong Results at World Cup, IBU Cup, and Canadian NorAm

25 Jan 2016 @22:14

World Cup in Antholz, Italy

GRP biathletes Clare Egan and Susan Dunklee competed in Antholz, Italy over the weekend in World Cup 6, which included a sprint, a pursuit, and a women’s 4x6k relay. Both Susan and Clare did not have their best days in the sprint; Susan shot well (1+1) but was missing her usual speed on skis and finished 37th. Clare cleaned in prone but then had 3 standing misses to take 67th. The pursuit two days later was a different game for Susan, she found her ski speed with the 4th fastest ski split, and made 17 out of 20 shots to climb up to 17th. The next day, the US women tested out a different relay order in the 4x6k, with Clare scrambling, Susan in second leg, then US biathletes Annelies Cook and Joanne Reid finishing. Clare had a solid relay leg, using only ...

Fun racing for all at the MNC duathlon

25 Jan 2016 @15:26

This weekend, Craftsbury was host to the Mansfield Nordic Club Duathlon event. In a duathlon, competitors classic ski a portion, quickly switch to skate skis, then move on to the skate leg of the event. Sunday was a gorgeous day, with sunny blue skis and perfect skiing conditions. 

The morning began with the longer races, where men and women, ranging from U16’s to masters, raced 11.4 k, with a ski exchange halfway through. Noah Eckstein was the only Craftsbury racer to contend the open event, where he finished seventh overall and third in the U18 age group. 

The afternoon was dominated by nearly one hundred feisty Bill Koch League racers, who are anywhere from first through eighth grade. The first and second graders kicked off the afternoon, with a win from Charlie Isselhardt and ...

Jennings Resigns

25 Jan 2016 @9:16

We are sad to announce the departure of Running Program Director Lynn Jennings. Lynn, who has coached at Craftsbury for nine years, and has been Director for the last five years, resigned from her position, with regret,  on 15 December. We are sad to see her go, but we respect her desire to pursue new adventures at this time in her life.

Lynn started coaching at the Center as a lark under previous Director Greg Wenneborg in 2007. One week turned into more over the years until Greg handed the job over to Lynn in 2010. Growing the running program to include high school cross country, running/sculling, foliage weekends and an inaugural Trails2Ales weekend meant Lynn got to spend her summers and autumns residing in “the Duck Blind” with her dog Towhee with plenty of time for sculling ...

GRP’s Sargent Powers through Double Sprint World Cup in Planica, Slovenia

18 Jan 2016 @14:35

Following the conclusion of the FIS Tour de Ski, the cross country World Cup continued this past weekend in Planica, Slovenia with double-header freestyle sprints. Green Racing Project skier Ida Sargent, along with several of her sprint specialist USST teammates, raced both the 1.2k individual sprint and a team sprint.

In Saturday’s individual sprint, Sargent had a strong start to the day in her qualifier, placing 21st, 8.94 seconds out. She, along with teammate Sophie Caldwell, made the top 30 rounds in a strong sprint field. Sargent was in the fifth and final quarterfinal heat, and had a good start that put her in position to advance. However, she faded a bit on the final uphill and ended up 5th in her heat and 23rd overall on the day. Caldwell did not advance from her ...

Ida Sargent Races First Five Stages of the Tour de Ski

6 Jan 2016 @14:37

The Tour de Ski began this past Friday on the first day of the New Year in Lenzerheide, Switzerland. The full Tour consists of eight races taking place in three countries at four different venues. 

Ida Sargent competed in five of the eight stages beginning with the freestyle sprint. She qualified for the heats in 26th and then went on to place fourth in her quarterfinal heat. Although she did not have a fast enough time to advance as a lucky loser, she did improve upon her qualifying position ending up in 20th overall.

The Tour continued the following day with a 15km mass start classic in which Ida finished 48th. This result set her up to start in a wave approximately 5-minutes behind the leader in the next day's 5k freestyle pursuit. She finished 51st overall.

Between Christmas and New Years, two Craftsbury juniors, Anders Hanson and Marika Massey- Bierman, made the trip to Kincaid Park in Anchorage, Alaska for World Youth/Junior Championships and Youth Olympic Game Trials. Youth/Junior World Championships will be held in Romania at the end of January and beginning of February and the Olympic Games will be in Lillehammer, Norway in mid February. Though all competitors were greeted with heavy winds and a grassy landscape, both Craftsbury biathletes completed solid races and finished within the top 10 each day.

Monday was a 10k sprint for youth men and 7.5k sprint for youth women. Anders placed 8th out of 18 competitors. It was a tricky shooting day for all, and Anders shared the same number of misses as the day's winner! Marika placed 8th in ...

We're enjoying an extended mountain bike and trail running season this winter. If you're interested in some cross-training, we thought it'd be appropriate to address some of the questions we've been getting about our expanded singletrack trail network given the continued mild weather.

What's available? Over the past several years, we've been working on expanding the singletrack trails at the Center for running, biking, hiking and snowshoeing in the winter. We presently have about 10 or so miles of trails if you connect the Center and Hosmer Point. Check out the current map of Center singletrack.

What's open? Frequently not much; this time of year is so wet, with so much freezing and thawing, that it's hard to open much up as we work to protect the trail system, even from damage caused ...

Juniors and BKL'ers take on the first Eastern Cup Weekend at Craftsbury

22 Dec 2015 @19:04

 

This weekend marked the beginning of the Eastern Cup series, the arrival of winter, and the opportunity for the Craftsbury juniors to put their summer and fall training to the test against one of the largest Eastern Cup fields on record. Saturday, amidst dumping snow, competitors raced around the upper and lower soccer fields two and a half times, to complete a 1.6 kilometer sprint.  In an effort to work with Mother Nature and still hold sprint rounds, despite the minimal snow on the ground, qualifying numbers were reduced to sixteen for the open field and eight each for the U16 and U18/U20 fields.

Callie Young qualified as the first U16 and Phoebe Sweet as the eighth, landing them spots in the same semi final, where they finished third and fourth in that heat, helping them to ...

Sargent makes Top 30 in Davos Skate Sprint

14 Dec 2015 @17:15

GRP cross country skier Ida Sargent had another successful sprint day in Davos, Switzerland, where the third weekend of World Cup racing took place this weekend. She skipped the 15k freestyle Saturday to rest up for the sprint, and on Sunday morning put down a fast qualifying time, taking 18th. She was in the mix for most of her quarterfinal heat, which ultimately went to German Sandra Rindwald, but didn't quite have the legs in the finishing stretch to contend for a semifinal spot. A 6th place in her heat placed her 27th on the day. Fellow Vermonter Sophie Caldwell had the top US result of the day, riding two lucky loser berths to the A Final, where she placed 6th. 

Sargent travels next to Toblach, Italy, where the World Cup resumes next weekend with a 10k classic and another ...

Tuesday Night Race Canceled

14 Dec 2015 @9:39

It is with a heavy heart that we announce that we're canceling this week's Tuesday Night Race (scheduled for 12/15). We feel that we need to protect the snow for the upcoming Eastern Cup Opener this weekend. The fast and furious Tuesday Night Racing action should be back in full swing in January, beginning on the 12 with a classic mass start. 

Speaking of the Eastern Cup Opener, if you are interested in volunteering at the races, please email volunteers@craftsbury.com. Races like these depend on the dedication and support of our volunteer army and we can always use more helping hands.

If you'd like to be involved in a hands-on way, the U.S. Paralympic coaches are looking for guides for some of their vision-impaired athletes.

The first biathlon World Cup of the season continued in Ostersund, Sweden with individual, sprint, and pursuit races. Clare Egan was the top American in Thursday's individual 15k race placing 44th, her second-best finish at the World Cup level after placing 40th in the pursuit at the 2015 World Championships in Kontiolahti, Finland. She cleaned both prone shooting stages and only missed one in her first standing stage and two in her second standing stage. Hannah Dreissigacker, who's been recovering from a knee injury, placed 80th and Susan Dunklee placed 84th.

Miller, Patterson Take Podiums at Sun Valley SuperTour

7 Dec 2015 @21:46

Green Racing Project skiers had a successful weekend with several podiums at the second weekend of USSA SuperTour racing in Sun Valley, ID. Low snow conditions threatened to move the venue up to 8,000 ft., but an army of shovelers was able to ready the Lake Creek trail system in time to hold the classic sprint and 10/15k mass start classic.

Saturday’s classic sprint started off well with all 5 GRP skiers making the top 30 rounds. Kaitlynn Miller led the charge winning the women’s qualifier, with Caitlin Patterson just behind her in 2nd, Liz Guiney in 4th, and Heather Mooney in 18th. Alex Howe also made the men’s heats with a 16th in the qualifier.

Highland Lodge Shuttle 15-16

1 Dec 2015 @15:18

For the last couple years, we’ve been providing a free shuttle to take skiers to Highland Lodge so that they can enjoy a one-way point-to-point ski back to the Outdoor Center. The ~20k route also happens to be slightly net downhill in the Craftsbury direction, adding appeal to this beautiful ski.

Interest grew significantly last year, to the point where we were often taking as many as 3-4 van loads of skiers to HL on a weekend morning! It was great to see this enthusiasm, but the multiple trips were inefficient in terms of both staffing and van mileage.

So we are excited to announce that our shuttle service will be expanding this winter—into a bus! With a single bus trip, we will be able to bring as many skiers as we often carried last year.

With the new service will come a few ...

Sargent’s 7th Headlines Opening Race Weekend for GRP Skiers

29 Nov 2015 @18:24

Proving that first race jitters are no barrier to success, GRP skier Ida Sargent fought her way  to 7th place in the opening classic sprint of the World Cup season. She also competed in two other races this weekend as part of the Ruka Triple Mini-Tour in Kuusamo, Finland. Back in the states, 5 GRP skiers opened their season in West Yellowstone, MT, finding success in the freestyle sprint and distance race.

Kuusamo, Finland World Cup
Sargent squeaked into the rounds (top 30) in Friday’s classic sprint qualification, and from there her results only improved. She placed 3rd in her quarterfinal heat behind Norwegian powerhouse sprinters Maiken Caspersen Falla and Ingvild Oestberg, which advanced her to the semifinals as a lucky loser. In her semifinal she again placed 3rd, but just ...

We were finally able to start making snow last night! We should be able to make it again tonight, too. Unfortunately, the forecast doesn’t look as good for the rest of this week: we may not have good snow-making conditions again until after the weekend. As a result, we will likely have considerably less snow than we did last year for Thanksgiving. What's a skier to to do? Of course, there's tons of good dryland options in and around Northern Vermont.

Two Wins for GRP Rowers at 51st Head of the Charles Regatta

20 Oct 2015 @22:31

The Green Racing Project brought home two wins this weekend at the 51st Head of the Charles Regatta in Boston.

Willy Cowles (Farmington, Connecticut) won Saturday’s Men’s Championship Double with partner Sam Stitt from Potomac Boat Club. The two beat out the Green Racing Project entry of Peter and Tom Graves (Cincinnati, Ohio), who placed second. The Graves had a faster time down the course than Cowles and Stitt by split seconds, but their final time was effected by a 5 second penalty from missing a buoy. This allowed Cowles and Stitt to squeak out the Graves with a time of 17:01.955.

Sunday’s GRP win came from Hugh McAdam (Hollis, New Hampshire) in the Lightweight Men’s Single. The 2014 winner of the event, McAdam’s victory this year came in a time of 18:36.

15 Oct 2015 @16:24

Dan Roock, who has served as GRP Rowing Coach for the past three years, has decided to take a break from coaching. Dan is looking forward to having more time to spend on a variety of projects that coaching has not allowed him to pursue.

Dan led GRP rowers to a number of appearances at World Championships and World Cups, highlighted by a bronze medal in the Men’s Quad at World Cup III 2014, in Lucerne.  

We thank Dan for his years of coaching, and we wish him well in his future projects and adventures!

Jericho, Vt. hosted the second set of trials races for US Biathlon this Saturday and Sunday. The two sprint races capped a four race series, the first set of which was also hosted by Jericho back in August. The USBA coaches will use the results from the races to choose skiers to attend a fall camp in Park City, Ut., from which they will select athletes to fill out the World Cup quota for the US. With GRP biathletes Susan Dunklee and Hannah Dreissigacker, among others, already qualified for World Cup starts, there are currently two women’s spots and one men’s spot available. 7 GRP biathletes competed in the weekend’s races, 4 women and 3 men.

2015 Beatdown Results

10 Oct 2015 @13:08

Stoked to share a GORGEOUS day in the NEK with some friends at the 2015 Black River Beatdown. Thanks so much one and all for coming out, you can view results here (and no, they aren't in fact "Test" results - that's an artifact of pre-race setup).

Feedback? Reach out to bikes@craftsbury.com with any mistakes, praise, or ideas for the future. We hope to make the fall race an annual thing, so any thoughts you have on improvements or changes are definitely welcome.

We're going to be leafblowing/raking the trails thru the fall, so you can continue to (safely) mountain bike and run for a little while longer. Day use is $5/day OR your trail use is covered by an annual membership.

As always, you can find out current singletrack conditions at Trail Hub. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

New Wildlife Trail

7 Oct 2015 @11:27

The Craftsbury Outdoor Center now offers a self-guided Wildlife Trail using existing ski trails. The Wildlife Trail features several species common to the Craftsbury area such as Ruffed Grouse, White-Tailed Deer, and Bobcat. The trail project started several years ago as a collaborative effort between several COC staff members with the goal of offering more nature programming at the Center and highlighting the beautiful/unique landscape that exists here.

Most people can complete the trail in 1-1.5 hours. The guide booklets can be found at the front office, at the parking lot kiosk near the Activity Center, or on the trail head signboard located on the upper soccer field. The booklets have a trail map to direct you to Wildlife Trail signs along the path. Enjoy!

New Biathlon Coach

6 Oct 2015 @9:20

This November marks a year since Miro Segrt came to the Craftsbury Outdoor Center from Serbia to serve as our Biathlon coach. In early November, Miro will be leaving Craftsbury to move on to his next adventure.
 
Miro brought seven years of biathlon coaching in Serbia to Craftsbury. His extensive competitive shooting experience brought a shooter’s perspective to the program, helping juniors in learning proper position, breathing, focus-- and always emphasizing safety. He also improved the organization and care of our biathlon equipment. We thank Miro for his many contributions to our program and we wish him well in what he takes on next!

As we lose Miro, we will be gaining Sam Dougherty as our new biathlon coach. Sam began his skiing and biathlon career in Alaska, attended Montana ...

Singletrack Shootout 2015

5 Oct 2015 @15:55

Thanks to everyone who came out to participate in the 4th Annual Singletrack Shootout Biathlon race, part of Craftsbury’s Oktoberfest weekend. We had almost 60 competitors on a beautiful fall day. The bikers completed a ~7k course with two shooting stages, while the runners did ~6k. Both groups did two shooting stages; the novices shot prone both times while the expert category had a prone and a standing stage. For the overall win, the novices and experts were combined, and a few times the novices came out on top!

In the men’s running race, novice Russell Primeau took the victory, despite 7 misses on the range. However, it was expert racer Susan Dunklee who took the overall running victory, beating Russell’s time by 1:30 and accruing just three penalties in her shooting stages. ...

We're happy to announce that we're accepting applications for the Small Boat Training Center (SBTC), summer 2016. The SBTC is a summer program for U23 athletes (whether in college or not) designed to be a bridge from collegiate rowing to the US National Team, with a focus on smaller boats. In the nearest term, the immediate goal is to put together small boats to compete at U23 World Championship Trials.

The program offers coaching, equipment, room/board and travel support. Rowers may compete in races such as U23 World Trials, Senior Nationals, Senior Team World Trials, World Championships (U23 and Senior) and Canadian Henley.

Participants offset the costs of the program with work at the Center. Work projects support the Craftsbury Outdoor Center and its mission. Sound like something ...

Public House donated to new non-profit

17 Sep 2015 @11:19

Two years ago, the Outdoor Center received the generous donation of the Craftsbury Inn, located in the lower village and along the ski trail to Greensboro. Here’s an update on that project.

We’ve made significant progress toward restoring the original historic structure by: taking down additions that were beyond repair; replacing the roofing; replacing a sill and restoring the foundation; and removing asbestos. We’ve also made a good start in restoring the land to provide an ADA compliant community park, restoring native vegetation along the riverbank by removing invasive species, and reviving a stretch of the Black River.

This past summer, the Outdoor Center (COC) made the decision to separate from the Craftsbury Inn project. Although we still think the idea of a public gathering ...

In response to the popularity of last year's Masters' Camps, we'll be offering two sessions again this December. The first camp will be geared more toward newer skiers or those who haven't raced before; the second will be aimed more at the master skier who has been competing and wants to race faster.

Participants will get three days on snow (four if you get to campus early enough on Thursday) full of instruction. Coaching staff for the camps are being finalized but will include Craftsbury's Ollie Burruss, Janice Sibilia, Craftsbury GRP's Pepa Miloucheva (session 2 only), GRP athletes, Craftsbury coaches and more (we're hoping for a return of Gunstock's Nina Gavrylyuk).

Update on the Cabin Project

14 Sep 2015 @18:25

If you’ve spent any time around the Center this summer, chances are that you’re wondering about the ever-growing rock pile in the lower parking lot, and the accompanying blast site up at old Wilbur’s near the hoop houses.

The Center is currently in the middle of construction on six new cabins (colloquially known as Wilbursdorf) to replace the accommodations currently offered by Tamarack. Due to open in spring of 2016, these cabins will be located on top of the hill near the end of Lemon’s Haunt. Don’t worry, the 5k race loop has already been re-routed! The plan is for five residential cabins and one “common area” cabin with a kitchen and lounge space. Although simple in design, each cabin has a porch, a view of Big Hosmer, and direct ski trail access in the winter. The ...

Lauderdale, FL), Peter Schmidt (Providence, RI), Tobin McGee (Rye, NY), and coxswain Jack Carlson (Weston, MA), began the race in last place, but this did not deter the group, as a strong middle 1000 meters put the eight back in medal contention.
