Vermont's Gateway To Backcountry Skiing And Riding

Section 19: Route 17 to Camel’s Hump Road


This is a challenging, remote, back-country section through Phenn Basin, over Huntington Gap, and then through the wilds of Camel’s Hump State Park to Camel’s Hump Rd. in Huntington. Approximately two miles of trail are collocated on a snowmobile corridor.

9.9 miles

This section is very remote and requires advanced skiing abilities.  It includes many steep climbs and descents. The snowmobile portion is groomed, but steep and remote. The descent to Camel’s Hump Rd. is very steep.  We recommend you ski with three or more skiers and bring climbing skins.

Trail Conditions & Updates – #CTsection19

With 300 miles of trail to keep track of it can be hard to know exactly what to expect on a specific section of trail, but that doesn’t mean we can’t try. Using Twitter we are hoping to help skiers out on the trail communicate their experience to skiers at home using specific hashtags for trail updates. The format is #CTsection(#). When planning an adventure you can view current updates by visiting the specific section page on the Catamount Trail website, or by searching twitter for the appropriate section you hope to ski. Below are updates for Catamount Trail Section 19… #CTsection19.
