Women’s Day registration is open!!! We are excited to announce that this year’s event will be held at Rikert Nordic Center in Ripton, VT. They hosted back in 2015 and we are looking forward to being back on their beautiful trails.
New England Women’s XC Ski Day was started in 2002 by former Olympian Trina Hosmer of Stowe, VT. Trina was inspired by her “sisters in skiing” in Anchorage, Alaska, who started the Alaska Ski for Women in 1997. The highlight of the day is learn-to-ski clinics with self-identified women instructors; the emphasis being on relaxed, fun learning with other self-identified women. Registration includes cross-country ski clinics, wax demonstrations, a fantastic prize drawing, a tasty bagged lunch, and a donation to our benefit organization (see below).
This year our benefit organization is Stride, an organization whose mission is to remove barriers to entry and get girls in the game and on the trails by providing mentorship, gear, and learning opportunities to young female athletes in Vermont. If you would like to make a donation to the organization, you can do so through registration. You can also pre-order this year’s official Women’s Day Skida hat!

Please note that in light of the ongoing pandemic, we will not be offering an indoor, sit down lunch. Bagged lunches can be eaten outside as a picnic or in your personal vehicle. After lunch, we will all gather in the Rikert Barn, with masks on, for the raffle and presentation by Olympian Sue Wemyss on the book Trail to Gold.
