Cross-country skiing at Craftsbury Outdoor CenterFounded in 1976, the Craftsbury Outdoor Center offers year-round outdoor activities and beauty. A Nordic trail network provides miles of cross-country skiing. Summer activities include rowing and running camps. In 2008, the new owners transitioned the Craftsbury Outdoor Center into a non-profit organization with a mission “to support and promote participation and excellence in lifelong sports with a special focus on rowing, Nordic skiing and running; to use and teach sustainable practices; and to protect and manage the surrounding land, lakes and trails.
