The Length of Vermont on Skis

Vision & Mission


Vision: The Catamount Trail is a fully conserved, well maintained public-access ski trail that spans the length of Vermont. The Catamount Trail and related trail networks are unique resources for winter recreation and important conservation and economic assets for the people and State of Vermont.

Mission: The Catamount Trail Association (CTA) is a non-profit, member-driven organization that develops, manages, and conserves the Catamount Trail, a public-access ski trail that runs the length of Vermont from Massachusetts to Canada. The CTA builds partnerships to support the Trail, and fosters awareness and stewardship of Vermont’s diverse landscapes through promotion and use of the Trail. Founded in 1984, the organization also advocates backcountry and cross-country skiing for the quality of life, recreational, health, economic and educational benefits they provide.
