NENSA Women's XC Ski Day
Inland Woods + Trails, Bethel, ME
January 28th, 2024
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 cross country 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 who are comfortable in a space that centers the experience of women. NENSA hopes that Women's XC Ski Day helps bring more folx together to enjoy this wonderful sport.
