Join us on March 14th for the Trapp Lager Marathon. Hosted by the Trapp Family Lodge, this will be a 25 or 50 kilometer classic ski marathon and is part of the Swix New England Marathion Series. Racers will ski a winding 25 kilometer loop on our scenic trails and enjoy an after party and awards ceremony with live music, good food, and of course, some great Austrian style lager! Representatives from Salomon, Atomic, Rossignol, Madshus and other leading ski companies will also be hosting an on-snow demo for racers to preview next year’s equipment. In addition, Swix will be holding their year-end sample sale, with exclusive factory team products and one-of-a-kind items available for well below wholesale pricing! Come enjoy our world-class venue with skis on foot and a pint in hand!
