Frost Mountain Nordic Ski Club is dedicated to creating a healthier, more active, outdoor lifestyle for all ages and abilities in the mountains once home to Robert Frost in central Vermont.
Founded in 2006 to support cross-country skiing in and around Addison County, Vermont, Frost Mountain Nordic Ski Club (FMN) is based out of the Rikert Outdoor Center in Ripton, VT. FMN offers programs and events for skiers of all ages and all experience levels. Modeled after Scandinavian-style ski clubs, FMN promotes a lifetime love of skiing, education for learning and racing on skis and a connection to the physical and cultural landscapes of Vermont cross-country skiing.
FMN supports multiple programs including the Frost Mountain Nordic Bill Koch League, which is housed within the New England Bill Koch League (NEBKL). NEBKL is the largest cross-country ski program for young people in grades K-8 in the United States. The mission of the BKL is to introduce young people to the lifelong sport of cross-country skiing, and the many associated health, fitness, and social benefits, in a fun, inclusive, and safe environment. Whether a child loves the adventure and exploration of cross-country skiing or wants to grow up to be a ski racer, BKL has something for everyone. NEBKL is administered by New England Nordic Ski Association (NENSA), the umbrella organization for nordic skiing events in the northeast region.
