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.

As you may know, Craftsbury is hosting a Paralympic Cross Skiing & Biathlon NorAm, which will also serve as the U.S. national championships, January 6-10, 2016. 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. Guides need to be fit, but not necessarily world-beating fast. This is a perfect opportunity for a master skier to get some unique racing experience. If you are interested in guiding, please contact U.S. Paralympic head coach John Farra or assistant coach Eileen Carey.

Egan Races to Impressive Personal Best-Finish in Ostersund World Cup

8 Dec 2015 @16:22

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.

Two days later in Saturday's 7.5k pursuit race, Clare was once again the first American with an incredible 16th place finish that blew away her previous best World Cup finish. Clare was the 90th starter and after cleaning her ...

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. The women continued to dominate the rounds, with Kaitlynn and Caitlin both winning their quarterfinals and Heather taking 2nd in her ...

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 ...

17 Nov 2015 @16:49

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.

The two-day event includes a 6000-meter test on the Concept2 ergs on Saturday, with a Sunday time trial water piece of about 4000 meters. Starting order for the Sunday piece is determined off the finishing order of the Saturday erg.

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.

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

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.

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 ...

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

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 ...

Senior World Championship Trials were not the only racing action for the GRP this past week. A contingent of SBTC and GRP scullers are up in St. Catharines, Ontario for the 2015 Royal Canadian Henley Regatta. Racing started off on Tuesday with heats for the women's single. All four Craftsbury scullers, Maggie Fellows, Kristi Wagner, Mickey Fili, and Liz Vogt, advanced to Wednesday's semifinals, but all were stymied by crosswinds and waves and none advanced further. 

The U23 women's double of Shiann Gardner and Maddie Pont won their opening heat and will advance to the semifinals tomorrow. Also racing tomorrow are the two Craftsbury senior women's doubles, Kristi and Liz and Mickey and Brooke Mooney (sister of GRP skier Heather Mooney).

Graves and Dann qualify for World Champs

5 Aug 2015 @13:03

Ben Dann and John Graves finished their time in Princeton, New Jersey exactly where they wanted to be, comfortably ahead in the final of the men's double at Senior World Championship Trials II. Dann and Graves' victory capped off a season-long goal of qualifying for Worlds in order to gain experience in advance of next year's Olympic Games. The duo defeated California Rowing Club's Paul Marcy and Ryan Shelton by 8 seconds to earn the right to race in Aiguebelette, France at the end of August. 

The remaining GRP crews in the finals raced valiantly, but failed to qualify. Tom Graves was neck and neck with 2008 Olympian Ken Jurkowski until Jurkowski inched ahead in the final 500m to take a 1 second victory. Parker Washburn and Andrew Reed finished third in the pair, behind two boats ...

5 Aug 2015 @11:29

Susan Dunklee saved the best for last, placing 4th in the final race of the Blink Rollerski Festival this weekend in Sandnes, Norway. The three day festival showcased the best biathletes and cross country skiers in the world competing not on snow, but on pavement.

Dunklee was 15th, an improvement on her 21st place from last year.

For Friday the races moved down from Lysebotn to Sandes, Norway and split into biathlon and cross country specific divisions. ...

Fresh off of U23/Senior Trials I, the Green Racing Project and Small Boat Training Center jumped back into action at USRowing’s Elite National Championship at Lake Mercer in New Jersey.

Racing in six finals, Craftsbury claimed three national championships in the men’s single, men’s lightweight single and men’s quad.

The men’s single final was stacked with Craftsbury athletes, but the real story of the race was the sprint between brothers Peter Graves (Cincinnati, Ohio) and Tom Graves (Cincinnati, Ohio. Peter edged Tom at the line by less than a second in a come-from-behind sprint with a time of 7:02.0. Also in the mix were Erik Frid (Madbury, NH), who got bronze and Ben Davison (Iverness, FL) who finished fourth.

The Outdoor Center's Sprinter and boat trailer have become a bit of a fixture at the Casperson Rowing Center in Princeton, New Jersey over the past 10 days as athletes competed at the second National Selection Regatta and then the Pan American Games Trials.

This year's Games are in Toronto, Canada and the rowing events will be held in St. Catherines at the site of the Royal Canadian Henley Regatta from July 11th to 15th. Because national team trials are based off of a 4-lane progression, with no lower-level finals, there was plenty of opportunity for high stakes racing for all the Craftsbury boats entered.

GRP Rowers Back on the Water at First National Selection Regatta

28 Apr 2015 @15:03

Spring is here for the rowers, even if it may not look like it on frozen Great Hosmer. The GRP squad finished a six-week training camp in Clemson, South Carolina before making the trip up to New Jersey for the first National Selection Regatta (NSR). The first NSR has World Cup spots on the line for the men’s and women’s heavyweight doubles, while Craftsbury also had competitors in the men’s heavyweight and lightweight single. Racing began on Wednesday with a time trial for all events that saw all Craftsbury boats advancing to the next round of racing. Thursday morning brought high winds that cancelled racing after conditions deteriorated during the early heats. Elizabeth Sonshine and Maggie Fellows braved the elements to finish 5th in their heat in the women’s double (the last ...

If you head over the snow report or our YouTube Channel, you can check out the live Craftsbury webcam! This past week we got our first cam up, focused on the lower soccer field/lower stadium. You'll see there's still a lot of snow out there, and some die-hard skiers too. We'll start with this camera to try and work out the bugs, but hope to add additional view or two so that you can follow our progress throughout the year with snowmaking, grooming and even some coverage of the scene at races.

GRP Skiers End Season at SuperTour Finals

Sun Valley, ID is a favorite location for Spring Series, the SuperTour races which mark the end of the competition season for most US Nordic skiers. With sunny skies, spring skiing conditions, and the strongest domestic fields of the 2014-2015 season, this year was no different. The Green Racing Project sent 5 women and 4 men to race SuperTour Finals and US Distance Nationals Championships, held at Galena Lodge in Sun Valley over the week of March 21-26th.

10/15k Classic Individual
The GRP kicked things off on Saturday the 21st of March with a 10/15k classic individual. Cold overnight temperatures combined with warm days to create a treacherously icy track, made especially challenging by klister conditions. On the GRP women’s side, only Caitlin Patterson and Emily Dreissigacker ...

Last weekend marked the season finale for American biathletes both at home and abroad (...that is, until Craftsbury's Spring Super Sprint Biathlon Race!). Hannah Dreissigacker and Susan Dunklee were the lone female members of a selective US contingent competing at World Cup 9 in in Khanty-Mansiysk, Siberia, Russia, while Clare Egan and Mike Gibson represented the GRP at US Biathlon National Championships in Truckee, California.  

In Friday's World Cup sprint, Hannah Dreissigacker led team USA with a new personal best result of 14th place, missing just one single shot in prone. Susan Dunklee suffered four misses on the range, but skied the fifth-fastest course time to finish 26th. In Saturday's pursuit competition, both US women missed five shots, which caused Hannah to slide back to ...

Craftsbury in Cali: 2015 JNs

19 Mar 2015 @11:59

Editor’s note: We’ve been avidly following the progress of our three Craftsbury Juniors at the 2015 Junior National Championships. We reached out to Callie Young, Craftsbury U16 racer, to give us the recap of the event below. Thanks Callie and congrats to all our '15 Junior Nationals competitors.

Last week, Orli Schwartz, Phoebe Sweet, and I (Callie Young) headed for Truckee, California to compete at Junior Nationals. We left on the 6th and got home on the 16th. The weather in Truckee on most days was in the 60s and sunny making for some very slushy snow. The altitude also posed a challenge for skiers like us who had never raced at altitude.

The first race we had was a skate sprint where the top 30 people in each class qualified for the heats. It was a pleasant and sunny, but not ...

Meanwhile, Europa Cup finals were in Chamonix, France, and GRP skier Liz Guiney joined the team of US skiers competing there. Both race series had spring-like weather with ice, slush, sunshine, and a high level of competition for their respective circuits.

World Championships events continued last Wednesday with the women’s 15k Individual. Left unsatisfied after a frustrating first weekend of W.C. competition, the US’s top seeded woman, Susan Dunklee, was eager to get back on her game. But when she missed two shots in the first prone stage, it seemed unlikely she would achieve the turnaround she was hoping for. A clean second stage put Susan back in the race, and a clean third stage moved her into medal contention. A single miss in the final standing stage bumped Susan out of the top ten but she held on to a solid 12th place in what would be the US’s top result from World Championships. Annelies Cook was the next finisher for the US in 47th with four misses, followed by Clare Egan in 51st also with four misses. Hannah ...

New Creek Road Trails

10 Mar 2015 @7:41

By now many of you have discovered the lovely new trails off of Ruthie’s Run by the yellow house of rowers on Creek Road. The main trail crosses the road, winds through some fields, enters an open hardwood forest, and climbs gradually for a kilometer or so before making a loop and coming back down. The trails will add about 3 kilometers to your ski around Sam’s or Ruthie’s and provide expansive views of the Lowell Range.

These new trails come to us through the generosity of Sally and Larry Bohen, who recently purchased the property along Creek Road. This past fall, the Bohens came to introduce themselves and ask if we would be interested in grooming the trails on their property. What a terrific offer! We took a walk with them on their property and were thrilled to find that the ...
