About Woodstock Ski Runners

Woodstock Ski Runners (WSR) was founded in 1932 and is the Oldest Ski Club In the East. In 1934 Bunny Bertram built the Nation’s first rope tow on Gilbert Hill. He and his friends used this rope tow to explore the surrounding hills, including Hill # 6. Bertram joked that to ski that hill would be suicide and two years later he purchased the property and opened Suicide 6. Since that time, Woodstock Ski Runners has taken advantage of the steep terrain, family environment and close location to make its mark in Vermont ski racing.

Over the years, Woodstock Ski Runners (WSR) has worked closely with Suicide 6, the Mt. Tom Ski Area and the Woodstock Inn and Resort as the host of the Friday Learn to Ski Program, the home base of the race and all mountain teams, or in later years as the home base of the Nordic Runners out at the Woodstock Nordic Center.  A tradition that is now in its 60th year.

WSR also boasts a strong history of Vermont skiing competition. The annual Fisk Trophy race invites elite athletes to participate, many of which are current collegiate racers and former National Team members. The Woodstock Union High School has won numerous Men’s and Women’s State Championship and Division titles. Our Junior Programs have produced Junior Olympic medalists and USSA State Championship medalists. Our Nordic Runners Program has produced some of the top skiers in the state.
