Stowe Derby This Weekend: Registration Closes Tonight!

The legendary Stowe Derby downhill cross-country ski race is this Sunday February 27th. Now in its 66th year, the race starts at the top of Stowe Resort and winds its way 20km down toward the village of Stowe, VT. Skiers are allow to use only one pair of skis for the entire course. A short, 6km, flat course along the Stowe Recreation Path is also an fun option for families and those who prefer to avoid the descent. Plentiful snow combined with trail improvement and grooming of the Stowe Recreation Path should make for ideal skiing conditions this year.

This unique event attracts hundreds of skiers of all levels to the area. It’s a community event supported by many local businesses and organizations, loads of volunteers and Vermont’s Catamount Trail Association. A celebration, prize ceremony and raffle will follow the race at the Rusty Nail.

Read a great story about the race, by Kirk Kardashian, in the Janaury issue of Vermont Sports.
