Winter fun with Women Outdoors!


Cross-country skiing at Craftsbury Outdoor CenterCalling all you cross-country ski bums! Join Women Outdoors for our 10th Annual Cross-Country Ski Weekend at the Craftsbury Outdoor Center in the heart of Vermont’s unspoiled Northeast Kingdom on January 29-31, 2016.

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.

Daytime activities

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.

Evening activities

Lots of funs and games for everyoneFriday evening starts with a delicious dinner at 6:30, usually followed by games and fun in the lodge while we watch friends new and old come wandering in. Bring your favorite DVDs, board games and stories for evening entertainment. There is a TV room for our use and also a heated yurt with a pool table, ping pong and Foosball. Unlikely champions seem to arise out of the mist here.


Accommodations are dormitory style double rooms, which allows us to offer great discounted pricing. Women Outdoors has reserved ten double rooms (twin beds), which will sleep 20. There are no additional rooms this year, so make your reservations early!

The restroom and showers are shared on each floor. Bedding and towels are provided.  There is a self-serve sauna with extra showers and towels.
