A Fun Ski Challenge for All


The Derby is on Sunday, February 26th, 2017 and this will be the 72nd edition of the Mt. Mansfield Ski and Snowboard's only Nordic production. The legendary race attracts hundreds annually and originated from a personal challenge between two good friends and amazing skiers - Austrian, Sepp Ruschp who was hired to head up the new ski school at Stowe and Erling Strom, world famous mountaineer from Norway. The challenge was 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, will you be the winner in 2017?
