Yup.... it's on the calendar. Happening February 3, 2018 at Mt. Abram. Telemarkdown will be there with tons of gear. Free lessons as always and some kind of fun race. We will post more as we get closer.

Thanks for posting this! I've been looking forward to this and have it on my calendar, but I may be stuck with a work obligation . . . what other events are there going on in the East for recreational newbs like myself?

Greg, that's a real poor excuse. :)

Amy, I'm not really sure what's left in NE as far as tele events go. Kare's festival will be happening and that will be posted here. You can also check Telemarkdown's schedule to see where they will be. They offer free demo gear and there may be lessons available.

The Four Star General just gave this one star general permission to attend :D I will be bringing the little generals along with me - they don't tele (yet), though maybe they will be convinced after the festival. Any suggestions on lodging (cheap and nice preferred) in the area?

Can't really help you in the lodging department. Bethel is your closest bet for most lodging. But be sure to say hi to the guy all alone in the sign-in tent (me) possible joined by the cow (Pete the flyingcow).

Auugh! The Andersen Telefest at Bromley is the day before/weekend of the Stowe Derby, which I've been trying to do for the past 2 years (and have been foiled both times).

Checking Telemarkdown's schedule next . . . sigh . . .

Well, I find it reassuring that someone else is bad at the Derby. I went on the Recon (again) but this time on my in-track skis and got good coaching, so I may make it down alive.
