2/9-11, 2018 – Women’s Cross-Country Ski and Nordic Skating trips in VT and NH

Come for a get-away in Vermont with Women Outdoors and Bold Paths Adventures. Good company, good food, good exercise and arts/crafts!

This is an event put on jointly by Women Outdoors and www.Boldpaths.com.

Open to all skill levels. We may rent a whole house, or We have room for only 8 people to stay at the Bold Path Adventures house (owned by Bold Path Adventures proprietor Bonna) but additional accommodation options are listed below.

Choose your adventure! Here are the options for XC Skiing, snowshoeing, or lake skating:

• 1/2 hr away: $20 for Strafford Nordic Ski Center, to ski on groomed trails.

• 1/2 hr away: ski around a lake on groomed trails.

• 1 hour away: Killington downhill skiing (see their website).

• 1/2 hour away: Lake Morey skate trail—longest trail in the US, nordic skates for rent at the Lake Morey Inn.

• Right here: Cross country skiing or snowshoeing in the fields behind the house (good beginner or warm-up terrain) and local snowmobile trails.

Once we know who’s coming, we can choose what activities to do as a group.

Accommodations: At Bonna’s, we have a house with 2 bedrooms with double beds, and 5 mattresses and lots of sleeping pads that we can put on the floor. Sharing rooms makes an inexpensive weekend!! We are thinking about a breakfast or a dinner out, if we feel like it.

We can fit 8 people at the house: this option is good for those who don’t mind sharing a room or sleeping on a couch or a pad on the floor.

If you are local, you can just join us for a day or two.

For those who’d rather have their own room, you can book your own accommodations at one of these inns, which are about 1/2 hour drive away:

Lake Morey Resort (right on the longest U.S. skate trail) Breakfast on the Connecticut

For those staying at Bold Paths (limit: 8 participants): $170 for the weekend/$100 for one night if sleeping in your own double bed in a shared room. $110 for the weekend/$65 for one night if sleeping on the couch or on the floor on a mattress.

For those staying off-campus (limit: 12 participants): $50 for the weekend, $35 for one day.

Food costs are in addition–bring your own food to pitch in on community meals.

Cost for either option includes x-country skiing instruction if needed, access to trails at Bonna’s, use of Bonna’s house for cooking and arts/crafts activities. Food costs not included. We’ll cook together: bring groceries. Tell us if you are interested, so we can get an idea of how many people we can expect: write to boldpaths@gmail.com or call Bonna at 802-333-3549. RSVP on this site after you have RVSP’d with Bonna.
