Green Mountain Skimo Citizen Race Series
Bolton Valley / Sugarbush / Stowe Mountain
This winter join us on Wednesday nights at Bolton Valley, and Saturdays at Sugarbush Resort and Stowe Mountain Resort for some casual uphill competition. The Green Mountain Skimo Citizen Race Series is designed to get you off the couch and out on snow! This winter after work don’t let the darkness take you down. Embrace it and come out and kick some uphill butt! Getting after it once a week is great for your fitness, and will help you ski more once the weekend hits. Who doesn’t want to be faster on the up, and stronger on the down!

Timing & Results
These are casual events, but they are timed and results will be posted below after each event. We apologize in advance for any butchering of names. Our system is far from sophisticated and writing down info in the cold with gloves or mittens on can be challenging.
The fastest Man and Woman each night–in honor of their awesomeness–will each receive a special treat, and everyone participating receives a raffle ticket which could score you some sweet gear from our partners during the raffle after each event.
2017 Results TBD
Each course is unlit and finishes where it starts. Routes are 1.5-3km long with 700-1000ft of climbing and descending. Racing will begin at 6pm sharp and participants will ski as many laps as they want, or can, in 1 hour. After 6:45pm no new laps will be allowed to begin and our sweep will head out.
