Going Downhill Fast

There are ski races, and then there’s the Stowe Derby. Now in its 70th year, this legendary race from the top of Mount Mansfield to the village of Stowe is done exclusively on cross-country skis. Athletes must combine Alpine and Nordic disciplines on a harrowing 12.5-mile course that drops more than 2,600 feet in elevation. A true test of mental and physical stamina, the competition attracts hundreds of skiers from around the country, who summon strength, skill and luck to make it through unscathed. New this year, fat-bike riders navigate the snow-covered terrain on two wheels, cheered on by hordes of spectators.
