Moosilauke Time Trial

The Dartmouth Ski Team will host its annual Moosilauke Time Trial on Saturday, October 25, 2014 at 10am.

Starting at the Ravine Lodge, athletes will ascend over 3 miles and 2000 vertical feet up the Gorge Brook Trail to the summit.  Women will start first at 30 second intervals, followed by the men.

Everyone will be chasing Kris Freeman’s 2010 record of 35:16.  Last year’s winners, Annie Hart ’15 and Erik Fagerstrom ’15 have both graduated so we will crown two new champions this time around.  Check out the historical record stretching back to 1989 and feel free to throw your hat into the ring by emailing ruff.patterson@dartmouth.edu.  If maximal uphill efforts aren’t your thing, please still come out to enjoy the hike and cheer on the team!

The Dartmouth Ski Team’s annual Moosilauke Time Trial will be held on Saturday, October 19th. Starting at the Ravine Lodge, both the cross country and alpine teams will travel 3.2 miles and 2250 feet up the Gorge Brook Trail. Friends and alumni are welcome to join in too. Start time is 10am.

Two years ago, the race was canceled due to a freakish late October snowstorm that dumped 6 inches in downtown Hanover.  Last year, a cold rain was falling at the bottom, the middle section of the trail was frozen mud, and the top was covered in ice – making conditions unforgiving the whole way up. This year, the weather forecast looks promising and the trail should be in good shape after a dry fall. Rumor even has it that Kris Freeman will be back to take aim at his 2010 course record of 35:16. Check out the historical record for all past results.  Hope to see you there!
