Does all the recent snow fall have you itching to get on skis? Perhaps even eager to jump in a low key race? Some of our regional partners are hosting events that might check all of your boxes. JacksonXC celebrates the new year with the Jackson Jaunt – a choose your own pace and start time affair. Most years this event requires your classic boards to take a cruise through the scenic and undulating Wave trail and Eagle Mountain trails. The following Saturday the Haydock family host the 39th annual run of the Bogburn. This is a special event harkening to the early days of skiing in New England, where skiers traverse the woods of central Vermont on old school classic trails. The Gunstock Nordic Association hosts their annual race the next day. The smooth flowing terrain of their trails is an excellent way to get ease back into freestyle skiing. Not to mention they put on a killer lunch menu!

We know the weather can be a little iffy later this time of year. Please keep an eye on their event pages for any updates. These are the kind of events where memories are made. They allow us intimate experience with nature followed by social time with our community – undoubtedly this includes some good stories to share. So come out and kick off the New Year at some excellent Popular races, which include some cool prizes and raffle items.
