The Stowe Derby is one of the oldest and most unique ski races in North America and is celebrating a 73rd anniversary in 2019. It started in 1945 as a personal challenge between two amazing skiers- Austrian, Sepp Ruschp who was hired to come to America and head the new ski school at Stowe and Erling Strom, world famous mountaineer from Norway. The challenge was to race from the top of Mt. Mansfield, Vermont's highest peak to the historic village of Stowe... The ultimate test of a skier's ability. Ruschp was the winner of the first Stowe Derby. There are multiple races to choose from including the Freestyle & Classic 20km Ski Race, Short Course (ages 6 to adult), 6km Race and the Fat Bike Race. The Post Race Celebration & Ceremony will be held from 3:00-5:00pm.
