Annual LOC Uphill Bonanza
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM





 The Lyndon Outing Club has partnered with Jesse Holden of NEK Endurance to bring the third annual 6-Hour Uphill Bonanza to the hill on Saturday, March 4th, from 10 AM – 4 PM. The event will test grit and determination as single participants and teams will see how many times they can skin up and ski back down the hill in 6 hours. If you do not own a ski touring setup, there will be demos on-site, or there will also be the option to hike or snowshoe up and back down. In the singles event, the participant’s lap will be counted after every trip up and down. In the team version, team members will take turns doing laps in any way they see fit. NEK Endurance will be donating much of the proceeds from registration to the Lyndon Outing Club to help them continue their mission of providing low-cost skiing to the Northeast Kingdom community.
