Last week in our neighboring town of Stowe, Vermont, Trapp Family Lodge played host to several hundred of the fastest junior cross country skiers in the country. They were here for the annual Junior Nationals—a week-long series of races contested by teams from each of the 10 US regions in skiing. Each region’s team is determined through a series of regional races earlier in the winter, leading up to this championship. For most of these junior skiers, ages 14—19, the goal of making their regional team is the focus of their training all year long. We congratulate all of these young skiers! From this bunch will come the Olympians of the future. Continue Reading ›
We’ve been following our Vermont local Olympians through their competitions in Sochi. Two athletes are members of the US Cross Country Ski Team, and two are members of the US Biathlon Team. The US biathletes brought a SkiErg along for the last few weeks leading up to Sochi and used it for specific strength workouts. When they got to Sochi, they were pleasantly surprised (as we were!) to find four SkiErgs in the dry-fire room! Continue Reading ›

Some of you may remember the story we wrote in the Fall 2009 issue of the Update about our CFO (“Chief Fishing Officer”), Jon Williams. Well, he’s still the in-house Fish Game Champion…but he doesn’t come close to the fishing exploits of customer Ken Petterson.
Ken and Jon communicate regularly about their fishing, and most recently Ken sent us a really impressive collection of his fishing stats, accumulated from over 9000 games! We thought you would enjoy seeing them—and perhaps this will inspire you to try the Fish Game if you haven’t already. It only takes 4 minutes to play each game, but fair warning: it can be quite addicting! Continue Reading ›
