FROM THE TOP TO THE TOWN, STOWE DERBY SET FOR FEBRUARY 23, 2020
Ski & Fat Bike Race from Summit of Mt. Mansfield to Village Marks 75th Anniversary
Attracting professional skiers, adventurous newcomers, and families alike.
Known as much for good-spirited camaraderie and entertaining costumes as it is for its thrilling terrain, this year’s long course will follow tradition with a start at the top of Mansfield’s Toll Road and the finish 20 km later in town. Kids Course too!
Dig out your wooden skis, bamboo poles and pine tar for a 5km tour on the picturesque trails and carriage roads in the Park. The adventure begins before you even start racing with a 3km ski from the parking lot to the race start at the Nordic Center’s Mt Tom cabin! Categories for best vintage gear and vintage outfit. Finish with a pancake brunch and awards!
All ages welcome, but skis must pre-date 1990, the older the better!

This challenging event takes place at Great Glen Trails and the snow covered Mt. Washington Auto Road. Long referred to as “North America’s Toughest 10K”, the Ski, Shoe & Fatbike to the Clouds course has an average grade of 12% over the last 6K as you climb the final 2,200 vertical feet. While there will be competitors who are seeking to make or break a record, for others it is the ultimate way to personally test themselves in one of nature’s most spectacular environments.
After covering 4k on the Nordic system, racers will have the historical Mt. Washington Auto Road to themselves as remarkable views of the Presidential Range and beyond are revealed. On race day, there will be a mass start of cross country skiers at 10 am, followed by the snowshoe start at 10:05 am and Fatbikers at 10:10 am. Ski, Shoe & Fatbike to the Clouds is considered a true freestyle event, there will not be separate classes for classic and skate skiing. This is NOT an event for inexperienced fatbikers, skiers or snowshoers!
