Helen, 3 year old Johannes and I started a winter 2021/22 adventure to ski all 23 of the cross country ski areas that are part of the Ski Vermont reciprocal pass program. If you get a season pass at any participating area you can get one free day ticket at every other ski area. For us it is an underutilized perk that we’re going to try to maximize this winter, and it will motivate us to get out for some local adventuring.

In partnership with Fischer and Skirack, we present Tour De Hollenbach: Stops 1 through 7: Sleepy Hollow Inn, Camel’s Hump Nordic, Memphremagog Trails, Jay Peak Resort, Catamount Outdoor Family Center, Trapp Family Lodge and Rikert Nordic Center.

Ben Lustgarten races in the 2019 Tour de Ski

Skirack cross country ski fit expert, Jake Hollenbach will be doing a series of short Q&A's with Skirack sponsored athlete Ben Lustgarten while he races the Tour de Ski and 2019 World Cups. Enjoy Part 2!

QUESTION: What was your favorite town/race venue the Tour de Ski traveled through?
ANSWER: The first question is pretty hard! All of these towns are so cool and unique, with amazing views of mountains. There was not a ton of natural snow in some of the locations, mostly all on man made, small snow loops. Val Mustair in Switzerland was very cool. We stayed in a small town that had incredibly tiny streets and we drove through what looked like castles and ramparts to get there.
