The New England Bill Koch League Festival will be held March 7-8 at the Mountain Top Resort in Chittenden, Vermont. This event is the culminating race weekend for New England teams. Outdoor activities will include x-c ski racing (skate one day and classic the next), Mike’s mini marathon, paintball biathlon, ice cream on snow, snow sculpture, Roger’s roarin’ terrain park, sledding, tubing, ice skating, horse drawn sleigh rides, 8th Grade graduation ski-down, and the ever popular lollipop race.
In addition to the competitive freestyle and classic races, this year the BKL Festival has added non-competitive options, known as “Nordic Adventure” events. These are perfect for kids new to skiing and nervous about racing, younger siblings who might not be racers yet, or just those who prefer to enjoy the winter wonderland without thinking about results. All skiers (competitive and non-competitive) will have a schedule to allow everyone to experience activities such as ice cream making and paintball, where space is limited.
