NENSA Women's XC Ski Day

NENSA Women's XC Ski Day

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 women as it can for a day of skiing which includes a lunch and a raffle. The highlight of the day is learn-to-ski clinics with women instructors; the emphasis being on relaxed, fun learning with other women. Trina hopes that Women's Day helps bring more women together for this wonderful sport and lifestyle.

Winter Wild up & Down Race

Winter Wild is an uphill series with a twist, the finish is at the bottom so you get to come back down too.  Grab your skis, grab your snowshoes, or just grab your favorite winter running shoes and join us for some winter fun.  Do you like first tracks?  Most events take place at a public ski area and you get to hit slopes before they open to the public.  What's not to like about that!
