The Catamount Trail Association would not be what it is without our partners at the Vermont Department of Forests Parks and Recreation and at the Green Mountain National Forest. We’ve worked with many exceptional and dedicated recreation and forestry professionals over the years to create, improve, and maintain the Catamount Trail on public lands. And now, that work includes creating not just a trail, but also glades for the growing number of backcountry enthusiasts looking to skin up and ski or ride down. Holly Knox is one of those dedicated professionals, featured in this recent Adventure Journal Article titled: Her Job Is to Make Backcountry Ski Runs for the U.S. Government.
Take a moment to read the story, and if you happen to bump into Holly or any of her GMNF colleagues when adventuring, be sure to thank them for the hours they put in negotiating bureaucratic mazes to create more and better opportunities for recreation on public lands!
