Sponsors & Partners
We're partnering with a growing array of sponsors from the ski world and our own backyard. Be sure to support those who support your favorite sport:
The Craftsbury Outdoor Center began in 1976 with a Nordic trail network cut on the land, with sculling and running camps founded shortly after, providing year round training and athletic opportunities in a beautiful natural setting. Since being reorganized as a non-profit, the Center's mission has grown
to support and promote participation and excellence in lifelong sports with a special focus on rowing, nordic skiing, biathlon and running;
to use and teach sustainable practices; and
to protect and manage the surrounding land, lake and trails.
While the mission has grown, we continue to provide great skiing, trailside lodging, healthy food, camps and programming for all ages.
Since 1976 we've been making innovative rowing products. From our Indoor Rowers and SkiErgs to our Dreissigacker Racing Oars, our products will help you get fit, stay fit, win your race, or train for your primary sport.
