Enjoy Vermont’s Historic Ski Culture at Catamount Trail Association’s 6th Annual Ladies Nordic Ski Expo
Women in the United States are starting to make a name for themselves in the Nordic skiing world. Last winter, two members of the US team took home the top honor at the Quebec World Cup Relays. This summer, Olympian Liz Stephen set a new course record at the Catamount Trail Association’s North Face Race to the Top of Vermont as she began her path to the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. The Catamount Trail Association is welcoming all women to join the Nordic ski world, whether to hone their skate technique, practice their tele turn, or simple learn to kick and glide, at the 6th Annual Ladies Nordic Ski Expo, happening this year on January 11th at Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe, Vermont. The spectacular location draws participants to the event, and helps women of all ages find their niche within the Nordic skiing culture.
