Past participants say...

"We went on this trip last year. What a blast! The snow in the Stowe area was in great shape, the Von Trapp xc center was fantastic, well maintained trails, great lunch lodge, great people. The Stowe downhill resort was immense and had great trails and great views. The happy hour at our lodging was very relaxing, a great way to hang with fellow participants. It was great meeting my roommate, and I met other participants at breakfast. Fantastic time."
