App Gap Challenge- Rollerski Race @ Mad River Glen
Aug 3 @ 8:00 am – 1:00 pm

NENSA and the Central Vermont Co-Op are happy to host the tenth addition of the App Gap Challenge.  Competitors ski a pursuit format, starting with skate, and transitioning to classic mid course at the parking lot of Mad River Glen, before making the push to the top.  Come and try and break the course record for $100 cash or challenge yourself to a spectacular ski up the eastern slope of the Green Mountains.

Mountain Work Day
Aug 3 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

The purpose of Mountain Work Days is maintenance of MRG’s legendary tree skiing. This involves cutting lines as well as setting aside areas for new trees to grow. Everything is done with hand tools. Work days are organized and led by Lars Bruns in consultation with ski area management. Mountain Work Days are a great chance to get out on the mountain, care for your favorite terrain, and learn about how northeastern mountain forests grow. It is fun and satisfying to see a ski line take shape, and how trees will grow in response to care. We welcome both experienced veterans and newcomers to the mountain work days.  Each person who works a full day receives a complimentary day pass voucher for each day he or she works.

Oct 5th (Green & Gold Weekend)

  • Report at 9 am at the Cricket Club picnic table.
  • We’re back down at 3:30 – 4 pm.
  • Most of the time we hike from the base, so be prepared to hike.
  • We always go, rain or shine. If it is raining, it is more of an adventure.
  • Bring work gloves, hiking boots, drinks & a lunch.
  • Loppers are the most useful tool to bring. Make sure they are in good working order.
  • Work days navigate our gnarly terrain; no dogs or kids under 12 please.

The incidence of Lyme Disease is increasing rapidly in Vermont. This disease is debilitating and hard to get rid of.  More Info on how to protect yourself while trashing around the woods of Stark Mountain.

The following tools are not allowed: All power tools such as chain saws, and swinging tools such as hatchets or axes.

Outfitting for Rain Events:

  • Outer layer – The primary function is to hold in heat, as well as keeping water out for as long as possible.
    • Goretex shell or other rain wear
    • Waterproof pant shell – old ski pants work well
    • Waterproof gaiters (Goretex)
    • Waterproof boots beforehand
    • Brimmed synthetic hat and fleece hat
    • If weather is warm, then staying warm is not a problem. Fast-drying shorts, gaiters, and a rain shell may be sufficient.
  • Inner layers – No cotton – must keep one warm when wet.
    • Wool or synthetic shirt and long underwear
    • Fleece
    • Wool socks
    • Thin windbreaker worn underneath shell to hold even more heat in
  • Other Tips
    • Put dry clothing in a garbage bag
    • Bring a second synthetic inner layer shirt (in the garbage bag) to change into at lunch
    • Put first aid kit in waterproof bag
    • Thermos of hot tea or soup. Caffeine constricts capillaries and should be avoided.
    • Bring backup gloves. Cold hands will not warm up in wet gloves
