February 1, 2014, Craftsbury Marathon Craftsbury Outdoor Center, Craftsbury Common, VT (Zak, Club, NEMS)
Event Info:

The 33rd Annual Craftsbury Marathon from Greensboro to Craftsbury
February 1, 2014

Join us for the largest nordic ski event in the east! Come challenge yourself Saturday, February 1st, skiing either 25 or 50k on some of the most scenic ski terrain in New England with up to 1000 competitors of all ages.

The 2014 Marathon will run in the traditional point to point format from Highland Lodge in Greensboro to Craftsbury Common via the Outdoor Center. The past several seasons have been marked by extensive work on the marathon trail: removing bumps, sharp corners, steep chutes, and poor drainage on the connector. The trail work also allows us to groom the entire course with our team of PistenBullys this year.

Whether you choose to compete or to volunteer, we believe you\'ll find that the marathon is an event with something for everyone! Hope you\'ll join us!

Important Dates for the Marathon

◦Thursday, Nov. 1 - Online registration opens. Prices increase as the race draws closer.

◦Wednesday, Jan. 29 - Online Registration Closes for Marathon.

◦Saturday, Feb. 1 - 33rd Annual Craftsbury Marathon, 25k/50k Classic Race. Post-race meal, prize drawing and awards.

GET INVOLVED
The Craftsbury Marathon offers participants a number of ways to enjoy some of the best skiing in the east:

RACE
The 50k or 25k race offers competitors a mass start, timed challenge over a beautiful point to point, PistenBully groomed course. Feed stations dot the route every 4 to 7 kilometers. After the finish, all participants are treated to a hearty post race meal and awards.

The top 3 racers in each age/gender class are awarded a locally handcrafted pottery bowl or iron bottle opener. Special pins will be awarded to all skiers finishing within 25% of age class winners.

VOLUNTEER
Volunteering offers a unique way to experience the marathon. Volunteers can net a variety of benefits including lunches, donations to your favorite non-profits and more. Keep watching the website as we finalize details.

July 12, 2013, NENSA LT/Vo2 Max Testing day @ Craftsbury Craftsbury Outdoor Center, Craftsbury, VT ()
Event Info:

Date: July 12, 2013

Place: Craftsbury Outdoor Center

Cost: $150 for NENSA Elite & Devo team athletes, $160 for non members.

Testing, logistics and more:

The testing will be done by Pepa Miloucheva, Craftsbury Green Racing Project ski coach and director of competitive skiing. Testing will be done on a Concept2 SkiErg. Athletes should have enough previous experience to be comfortable with this equipment prior to the test.

Total test takes between 10-15 minutes depending on the athlete, and a total of about 30-40minutes with the preparation. Each athlete will receive a summary of heart rate training zones based on the test results.

Skiers should eat before the test like one would before a race, so not too much right before. However, athletes should come to the test well hydrated. Skiers will only need running clothes, a snack and shoes. There is a shower if they wish to use it afterwards.

The quoted test time includes a warm up at the beginning on the SkiErg, but if you want more warmup on your own, be sure to build that time in to the schedule. You will not need to do anything extensive (so as not to build up lactic acid too early).

The lab is located at Craftsbury Outdoor Center, Craftsbury Common, VT in the basement of Cedar Lodge. Phones and GPS will often take you in odd directions. Reliable directions can be found on the Center website, www.craftsbury.com.

Athletes will have an informed consent form from Craftsbury to sign when they arrive. If they are under 18, a parent, guardian, or coach will have to sign also. If someone under 18 is driving himself and a coach/guardian isn\'t coming too, then the athlete should request an electronic copy that can be emailed to you.

If you have any questions leading up to the test, please feel free to contact Janice Sibilia at Janice@ nensa.net.


 


Registration:

Online registration is open through July 11th. See link below.

March 10, 2013, Backcountry Challenge Trapps to Bolton Race and Tour Bolton Valley Nordic Center, Bolton, VT ()
Event Info:

Race or tour on one of the most challenging and beautiful backcountry ski trails in the US. The Catamount Backcountry Challenge is designed for experienced skiers who have a true sense of adventure and are open to the unexpected. Each individual is required to bring a small backpack with food, water, and extra clothes since there will be no official aid stations on the course. Climbing skins are allowed and encouraged, and competitive class skiers are only allowed one pair of skis. The participants will be divided into two categories to include both competitive athletes in the timed race and non-competitive backcountry skiers in the non-timed, tour. Both groups will be challenged by the terrain, rewarded by spectacular views and feel the satisfaction of completing this iconic section of the Catamount Trail.

When: Sunday, March 10, 2013

Where: Catamount Trail Section #22 starting at the Trapp Family Touring Center and ending at the Bolton Valley Nordic Center.

Equipment: Past years\' winners have used waxless touring skis without metal edges and kicker skins for the steeper sections of trail.  However, unless you are an accomplished nordic racer, we highly recommend metal edged skis, and climbing skins are recommended for all participants.

Course: Race or tour this beautiful but physically challenging course on one of the most spectacular sections of the Catamount Trail. The course is 17km in length starting at the Trapp Family Touring Center in Stowe, with a 2300 ft vertical climb over Bolton Mountain and a 1300 ft vertical descent to the Bolton Valley Nordic Center.  70% of the trail is ungroomed, 30% is  groomed. Non-competitive skiers should expect to take at least 4 hours to complete the full length of the course.  View a map of this section of the Catamount Trail.

Previous Course Times:
The men’s course record for this event is held by Eli Enman of Huntington, VT set in 2010 with a time of 1:31:02

February 19-26, 2013, BMA Norwegian Junior Nationals Trip Homenkollen, Oslo, Norway, ()
Event Info:

Last year the Burke Mountain Academy Nordic Program hosted a trip to the Norwegian Junior Nationals at Holmenkollen in Oslo.

The invitation to participate in the “Jr.NM” or Junior Norwegian Championship was the idea of Bjorn Ilsemann, an energetic coach with the Norwegian College of Elite Sport (NTG). Burke and the NTG shared an exchange during the early part of the winter and the invitation for the Jr. NM participation grew out of that. These are the major races of the year for Norwegian kids and similar to our own JN’s. Qualification is necessary, and each region of the country sends a team. Last year there were about 450 competitors.

We put the American team together with athletes from across the US and had a gang that represented US junior skiing well. Two Burke athletes were already in Norway and the final squad that went over represented Maine, Vermont, Montana, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Idaho.

The Norwegians are welcoming us back again and we are making plans to join them in Lillehammer during the week of 19 – 26 February. Among the goals for the trip is to put US juniors into a large competition in a foreign setting and to expose them to the demands of a team assembled from different regions at short notice. The experiences of foreign food, transportation, race protocols, and the necessity for increased independence and self reliance are all part of the design. Another deliberate design for the trip is to provide the chance to legitimately place oneself on a broader based speed, fitness, and ability scale; a chance to see where one “stacks up” with good skiers from one of the worlds foremost ski countries. Most of the “Scando Cup” athletes from Norway will participate for their home teams and the measure is high.

The competition takes place over 22, 23, 24 February on the Olympic trails in Lillehammer and Sjusjøen. The trip will be open by application to OJ’s, J1’s and J2’s. A total of 8 athlete spots will be open. Ground cost is expected to be about $1700.00. Note that this competition will not interfere with US Jr. Nationals.

February 8-10, 2013, 2013 TD Bank Bill Koch Festival Weston Ski Track, Weston, MA ()
Event Info:

Please join host club Eastern Mass Bill Koch (EMBK) on February 9 – 10, 2013 at Weston Ski Track in Weston, MA for this year’s themed Festival: The Boston Ski Party!

For the first time ever, Eastern MA will host the Bill Koch Festival, NENSA\'s largest annual youth cross country skiing event. EMBK is thrilled to have the opportunity to share its venue, hospitality, and region with the New England skiing community after being hosted at other venues for so many years. The Boston Ski Party will take place in early February, also a first for NENSA, so as to ensure good snow cover for the Festival. The Festival promises fun racing and non-racing Ski Party events, including three race formats (the sprint race will return to join the relay and longer individual race), orienteering, and a nordic playground. We might arrange for some bales of tea for you to throw overboard, a guest appearance by some minutemen, and skiing under the lights! Just as Bill Koch broke the mold and revolutionized cross country skiing, the Boston Ski Party will break ground with some new aspects to the Festival so as to fit with our unique urban skiing venue.

Our headquarters hotel will be the Embassy Suites/ Waltham on 550 Winter Street, less than 10 minutes from Weston Ski Track on Park Drive, Weston. The hotel is holding rooms at a $115 rate (before tax) so friends from all over New England can stay together. This rate includes breakfast, parking, and an evening “Manager’s Reception.” Reservations open August 1. The hotel phone number is (781) 890-6767. Please mention 2013 Bill Koch Festival for the discount.

We look forward to seeing you in Boston and hope that many families from all over northern New England will join us for an exciting Boston Ski Party!

All About Classic! The clinic will focus on the instruction of intermediate and advanced skiers.

August 4-11, 2012, USSA National J2 Camp Craftsbury Outdoor Center, Craftsbury Commons, VT ()
Event Info:

The 3rd annual National J2 Invitational Camp will be conducted August 4- August 11, 2012 in Craftsbury, Vermont at the Craftsbury Outdoor Center. The camp will provide a great opportunity for many of the top young cross country skiers in the U.S. to train together, and learn from USST staff and top club coaches.

The camp is the first step along the U.S. development pipeline for promising young skiers. Each year the location of the camp will rotate around the U.S. to other great training venues, with the same time slot each summer – the first week of August. Selections of the top 20 boys and top 20 girls were made using a best two of three individual results from Junior Nationals. (For the sprint race, the qualifying round results were compared with final heat results and the best of these two was used in the calculation). In addition to the selections, each division may petition for the addition of up to 1 boy and 1 girl to attend the camp.

The collaboration from regional coaches along with continued support from NNF (National Nordic Foundation) and USSA (United States Ski and Snowboard Association), have enabled this camp to continue and to grow.  After two very successful years, Michigan Tech in 2010 and Sun Valley in 2011, NNF will provide support for another year in 2012. This support greatly helps offset camp costs and ensures some of the top coaches in the country will be guiding these young athletes.

This year’s site at Craftsbury Outdoor Center offers a spectacular setting for athletes with great hiking, rollerskiing, mountain biking, swimming, training facilities, lodging, and fabulous meals.

Camp Training Plan:

The goals of the camp are twofold. Provide camp participants with an excellent week of dryland training with other top US Juniors that serves to help motivate participants in their efforts in ski racing. Additionally, the camp will provide participants with up to date information on nutrition and health management, current international ski technique and training planning and execution.

February 25-26, 2012, Nor-Am Midget Championship Quebec, , ()
Event Info:

This is the equivalent of our BKL Festival, but for young skiers in Quebec ages 10-13. The event is a 3 day event, we will be doing only the first two races (to get back to school on Monday).  First event is a skate individual start on Saturday morning, and the second a classic mass start on Sunday.  We will be travelling up Friday afternoon, having dinner en route, and then check into the high school for the weekend.  This will probably be the biggest slumber party you have ever been to.  Different teams are assigned to different class rooms for their accommodations - blow up mattresses and sleeping bags are a must have.  Breakfasts and Saturday dinner are at the high school, lunches are near the race site at the nearby elementary school.  The race site is about a 30 minute drive north of the high school.  This is a really fun way to get an international racing experience, and see what the competition is like up north.

Poppet Boswell (Stratton Mountain School) is happy to act as team leader to spread info from coaches meetings and pick up bibs.  When people register, put NENSA as their club and she'll tell the guy up there that we are all together as one group and they can put the bibs all together, and you can stay in one/two classrooms (boys/girls).

Her email is:  pboswell@gosms.org

February 12, 2012, Maine Huts 4th Annual Classic Ski Marathon Carrabassett Valley Area / Sugarloaf Outdoor Center, Carrabassett Valley, ME ()
Event Info:
Note that race day is Sunday!  Classic technique only.   Our 4th Annual Ski Marathon and Tour is shaping up to be our best yet.  We're adding additional focus this year to the Tour by adding a Tour Division for both the 20k and 40k.  Tourers will be differentiated with a different bib and will have flexible start times and will not be timed.  

40k participants again have a package option available that includes dinner and lodging at Flagstaff Lake Hut on Sat, 2.11, pre-race breakast on the 12th, entry fees and post-race lunch.   There are only 40 spaces available for this option and will fill up very quickly.  

Due to the popularity of it last year, we are again offering a 60K distance (only available with a lodging package).  Due to the remote starting point, interested participants will need to meet at the Sugarloaf Outdoor Center on Saturday 2.11 at noon to catch a shuttle to a point where they will need to ski 8 miles in to Grand Falls Hut and take advantage of the fantastic lodging at Grand Falls Hut on Saturday night.  Your gear will be shuttled in to the hut on Saturday for you and out of the hut on race day and taken to the Sugarloaf Outdoor Center for p/up following the race.  This is all the same as last year.  Only 30 spaces available for this option and they will fill quickly.



Registration:

We have a team entry fee of $25 per person for teams of 6 or more people.  This is for HS and College teams.  Contact us to register.  20K and 40K participants who do not take the lodging option will meet at the Sugarloaf Outdoor Center on race day and be shuttled to the starting points. Gear bags will then be taken back to the Outdoor Center for post-race p/up. Course map and more race-specific info will be available on the MH&T website as the race date approaches. We hope you can join us for the 4th edition of this great event.  Call 207-265-2400 for more information about the lodging package, the team option or anything else related to the race or Maine Huts & Trails.

* I will send a snow condition / wax report Saturday afternoon - there are heated wax rooms 100 meters from stadium
* Each club may have one coach in the transition area to assist the kids with ski switch if they have trouble with bindings; any coach can (should) help any skier
* Kids should come to start line with warmups on, then we'll give time to strip down - let's keep them warm
* In the spirit of Duathlons, everyone should do the classic/skate switch, even though some might be able to double pole the classic segment with skate skis

WITH LIMITED SKIING ELSEWHERE, WE ARE EXPECTING A BIG TURNOUT... PLEASE EMAIL ME ROUGH NUMBERS COMING FROM YOUR CLUB SATURDAY NOON - sufficient cookie quantity is critical! We don't need names, just numbers so we can be well prepared.

December 10-11, 2011, CANCELLED Introduction to Performance Skiing and Racing Technique Trapp Family Nordic Ski Center, Stowe, VT ()
Event Info:

***Due to lack of snow, this clinic has been cancelled for this weekend. But! Although there is not enough snow to hold a two day clinic with 40ish people, there will likely be snow at Trapps this weekend (a mix of human-made and natural) and there will likely be limited terrain to get out a ski a bit. So! If you have made a room reservation, I would recommend taking advantage of that exceptional rate and still come up to Vermont. There's a good chance there will be some snow, lunch is awesome at the deli, and you will be able to enjoy all the special luxuries of a mini-vacation at Trapps. Thanks for your patience.****

 

Come join us for the fifth annual season opener ski clinic at Trapp Family Lodge Nordic Ski Center. This clinic will not only teach the basic classic and skate skills but will also focus on good uphill and downhill technique. The instructors for this clinic include past Olympians, U.S. Ski Team members, and Masters Champions. All of our instructors have had many years of experience skiing and teaching. This clinic is for the participant who had done some cross-country skiing and wants to become more efficient or even do some racing. It would also be appropriate for those who pursue another sport at a high level and now would like to become more proficient at cross-country skiing. Clinic price includes tasty lunch at the Trapp Family Lodge as well as a waxing clinic. Full event information including schedule can be found here.

***Stay on site at the Trapp Family Lodge for the weekend! Reserve your room by November 23rd for a special rate of $125!  Please call 1-800-826-7000 for reservations and mention this clinic. Rate is based on double occupancy in a Deluxe Room***

March 7, 2010, Ski to the Clouds presented by Maxiglide Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center, Gorham, NH ()
Event Info: 10AM Start. Ski to the Clouds was first held in 1996 as a new and unique challenge to the Mt. Washington Auto Road. Ski to the Clouds has an entirely new twist for this version of the Nordic ski race. This race will utilize the Great Glen Trails Nordic system for 4 kilometers before beginning the steep ascent up the Mt. Washington Auto Road. In the past, the race used only terrain on the Auto Road, limiting the distance. The race will finish just past the halfway point of the Mt. Washington Auto Road at just below 4000 feet above sea level. Ski to the Clouds will certainly be a challenge for any skier.
