Winter fun with Women Outdoors!
Calling all you cross-country ski bums! Join Women Outdoors for our Annual Cross-Country Ski Weekend at the Craftsbury Outdoor Center in the heart of Vermont’s unspoiled Northeast Kingdom on February 4-6, 2022.
This amazing weekend features 3 days and 2 nights of cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, ice skating and socializing. Accommodations, all meals and cross-country touring tickets are included. Women Outdoors members from all regions are encouraged and welcome to attend this event.
Accommodations are dormitory style double rooms, which allows us to offer great discounted pricing. Women Outdoors has reserved eight double rooms (twin beds) plus six single occupancy rooms, for a total occupancy of 22. Make your reservations early!
The restroom and showers are shared on each floor. Bedding and towels are provided.
There is a minimum two-night stay – Friday and Saturday, February 4-6, 2020. Your meals from dinner on Friday night to Sunday lunch are included as well as cross-country touring tickets for the weekend.
Double (twin beds – share a room) (8 double rooms available)
Single (twin bed – room to yourself) (6 single rooms available)
Note: You can indicate your preferred roommate when you register, or we can assign someone to you.
Spend the day exploring Craftsbury’s myriad Nordic trails and enjoying the best snow in the Northeast. Whatever your skill level, there’s a trail for you. Green, blue and black trails offer stunning beauty and great exercise. If you prefer, snowshoeing and ice skating await you. Bring your own snowshoes and/or cross-country ski equipment or rent from Craftsbury for a nominal fee. You can also sign up for a massage after a day on the trails.
Friday evening starts with a delicious dinner at 6:30. Due to COVID restrictions, guests are discouraged from congregating in the lodge or lounge this year. There will be two outside fire pits.
The Craftsbury Outdoor Center prepares delicious meals with both vegetarian and non-vegetarian options. The variety and fresh local ingredients are just fabulous. Gluten-free and other specialties are available with advance notice (be sure to let us know when you register!). Coffee, tea and snacks are generally available all day. There is a refrigerator and microwave in the lodge for day/evening use. You may bring your own alcohol, which is permitted in both the lodge and dining area. Note: Included meals are from Friday dinner to Sunday lunch.
