The Wintry Wander

presented by
Bolton Valley Resort


IMPORTANT: NO WINTRY WANDER for 2016!

It’s just not wintry enough! Stay on the GMARA mailing list though, we’re looking to do some fun kids and family events this spring and summer.


Enjoy a fun adventure in a snowy wonderland! Designed for families and teams with children, the Wintry Wander will let your group snowshoe on and around the beautiful trails at the Bolton Valley Resort.

You’ll start the event by receiving a special trail map marked with various points. Some will be on trails and easy to find, while others may be a bit off trail and more challenging. It’s completely up to you how many of what type you try to find. The goal is to have a great time outside in the snow!

You can finish as early as you like or take as long as you like, as long as you’re back by 1:00 p.m., when the cocoa starts cooling down. You won’t want to miss that!

Date

Saturday, March 5th, beginning at 10:00 in the morning. See the schedule for full details.

Cost

The cost of participation will be $5 per person. Anyone young enough that they’ll be in a backpack or pulled on a sled is free! Teams may be as big as you like, and we’ll be flexible if you need to change team membership at the last minute. Sign up now!

Prize categories are likely to include:

  • Best Team Name
  • Snowiest Team
  • Most Cheerful Hearts
  • Most On-trail Points
  • Most Off-trail Points

Directions

Our host venue will be the Bolton Valley Resort. Registration will be on-site at the Nordic Center. Here are directions to the resort.

Register

Registration is CLOSED! We’re not doing the wintry wander this year, because there’s no snow. It’s just not wintry enough.

Registration isn’t open just yet – we’re still working out final logistics with Bolton. Make sure you’re on our mailing list if you want notification when we officially open!

It looks like you’e on a mobile device, and unfortunately our registration form is a bit of a mess on mobile. Volunteer web developers and so forth.

You’re welcome to try it anyway: Registration Form

If it’s unusable, please come back when you’ve got a larger screen available! If you want a reminder, please contact us and we’ll be in touch shortly.

Please fill out the Registration Form to get started. Don’t worry if you’re not sure how many racers are joining you yet – the important thing is that we have a map available for your team on race day.

We’ve made some code updates recently, so if you see any issues by all means please contact us for assistance.

Schedule

The schedule for the Wintry Wander is laid back and focused on giving people enough time to have a fun day in the woods. If possible, err on the early side. You’ll have a better experience if you use the full time to look at the map as a team.

Take as long or as little time as you like on the course, but please return to the Nordic Center by 1:00 p.m. to have a warm drink and be there for the event wrap-up.
