MARLBORO– With the 2018 Olympic Winter Games around the corner, winter sports are on the minds of many community members at Marlboro College. Plans are well underway for an improved 2.5-kilometer cross-country ski loop on college land, to be used for future training and races for clubs in the US Collegiate Ski and Snowboard Association, of which Marlboro is a member.

According to president Kevin Quigley, Marlboro is investing in this new facility to allow for proper training for Nordic skiers, beginning skiers, and the community as a whole. The Wendell-Judd Cup, an annual cross-country ski and snowshoe event taking place this year on February 10, already attracts a good number of locals interested in hitting the trail, and this facility will bring students of a similar bent to campus. Funding is in place to work on the new trail over the summer. For more information call (802) 258-9219 or
