Every year brings it own set of challenges and rewards, and despite all the uncontrollable factors that had organizers scramble for quick solutions, the 68th running of the Stowe Derby will go down as one of the most Epic Derby’s of the decade.

The Stowe Derby is more than a ski race, it is the most exciting ski experience to be had. This year, the race was held on its traditional route, starting at the top of Mt.

After negotiating a couple of air pins you most certainly never noticed before, the rest of the course is a piece of cake, especially for most of us experienced skiers: a few ups and downs in the Stowe Cross Country Center and Trapp Family Nordic Center before skiing the flat Stowe Rec Path all the way to town.
