Rikert Nordic Center (VT)
January 23, 2022
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. Like the Alaskans' original event, Women's XC Ski Day chooses a non-profit women's organization to benefit, and gathers as many participants as it can for a day of skiing which includes lunch and a raffle. The highlight of the day is learn-to-ski clinics with women instructors; the emphasis being on relaxed, fun learning in a supportive and encouraging environment. All ability, skill, and experience levels are welcome. In addition to this event being open to all women, we also encourage and support the participation of nonbinary people. NENSA hopes that Women's Day helps bring more folx together to enjoy this wonderful sport.
Lunch & Presentation Update: In light of the ongoing pandemic, we will be offering a tasty bagged lunch to be consumed outside as a picnic or in your personal vehicle. (Click HERE to view NENSA's Full COVID Guidelines.) Following lunch, we will all gather in the Rikert Barn (with masks on) for the raffle and to hear Olympian Sue Wemyss speak about the new book Trail to Gold: The Journey of 53 Women Skiers.
Vaccination Information: Please note that Rikert Nordic Center requires that anyone utilizing indoor space be vaccinated. Read up on NENSA's COVID Guidelines HERE.
