70th Stowe Derby

There are two upcoming events in Stowe:

  • Stowe Derby (Sunday, February 22, 2015).  The Stowe Derby is one of the oldest and most unique ski races in North America. It started in 1945 as a personal challenge between two amazing skiers – Austrian, Sepp Ruschp who was hired to come to America and head the new ski school at Stowe and Erling Strom, world famous mountaineer from Norway. The challenge was the same as it is today – to race from the top of Mt. Mansfield, Vermont’s highest peak to the historic village of Stowe… on ONE pair of skis! The ultimate test of a skiers ability. Ruschp was the winner of the first Stowe Derby.
  • Stowe Derby Meister (Sunday, February 22, 2015). The Derby Meister is the TRUE test of endurance skiing! Skiers racing in this race will race both the Skate and the Classic races, back to back. 40km of skiing, a test of endurance, a leg burner, an awesome experience! This is for EXPERTS ONLY. Really.  NEW IN 2015 is the addition of a FAT Derby Meister. This new category if for racers who wish to race in the SKATE race AND the FAT Derby (Fat Bike Race). A whole new experience which we are confident will bring the whole of all worlds, snow worlds that is!
