Virtual BMT racers at the Craftsbury Outdoor Center will contest their efforts on one of the Outdoor Center’s most classic skis, a 7.5km version of the Ruthie’s Run loop. Leaving the lower field and the lap has a mellow start, with a gradual climb and then fun descent down to the Black River. From there the climbing begins, with a two kilometer gradual climb up to the height of land. Another gradual rolling descent back to the Black River gives tired skiers an opportunity to recover. The final 2km include a fast flat kilometer along the river bottom before a series of stair step climbs bring skiers back to the lower field for another lap.
The Craftsbury Outdoor Center is a 4-season trail center located in village of Craftsbury in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom. Our 104km trail network rolls through farm fields, crosses lakes and swamps, and dips in and out of the hardwood and softwood forests that make up the landscape of the Black River Valley. Our team of groomers works tirelessly to provide the best ski conditions for visitors of all ages and abilities, from first timers to World Cup champions.
