Race Preview: Craftsbury Vermont Season Opener
By:  Andre Marchand   (2015/12/17)

This weekend is the NENSA Eastern Cup Opener down in Craftsbury Vermont, which marks the beginning of the race season for most of Team XC Ottawa. The races this weekend will consist of two very fast and furious events, a Skate Sprint on Saturday (approximately 1.5km), and a 5km Skate race on Sunday.

The snow conditions will also be interesting as the race will occur on a man made snow loop that is 1km long, with hundreds of racers lapping through the same course it will be exciting to race and watch!

Let the season begin! :)

Temperatures in Craftsbury are similar to the Ottawa-Gatineau Region. See what snowmaking and a dedicated crew at Craftsbury Outdoor Center can do . . .
