Craftsbury Marathon Ski Festival

January 28 - January 29

Craftsbury is excited to bring back the Marathon Ski Festival in-person in 2023 after the unfortunate cancellation last winter. This years proposed courses will use a 25km loop, allowing for 25km and 50km classic options on Saturday 1/28 and a 25km freestyle option on Sunday 1/29 (skiing the course in the opposite direction).


The Craftsbury Marathon often boasts the largest citizen race turnout of the winter.

Prizes will be awarded to the top three finishers of each gender in each category, as well as the male and female winners of each age class. For Zak Cup racers, this year’s 50km classic will be the Zak Cup points race for racers in the M1-M6 age classes. M7 and up will be scored in the 25km classic. All 25/50km events will be scored to Club Cup.

2023 will also see the return of the Brodhead Challenge, named in honor of Marathon founder and longtime Director of Skiing at the Outdoor Center, John Brodhead. Brodhead Challenge competitors are those who race both the 50k classic and 25k skate, with the fastest man and woman getting their names emblazoned on the Brodhead Challenge trophy hanging in our touring center.

Whether you choose to compete or to volunteer, the marathon is an event with something for everyone!
