Vermont's Gateway To Backcountry Skiing And Riding

Section 6: Kendall Farm Road to South Road

 

Catamount_Trail_Section_6_MapSnapshot:
This section includes a little bit of everything:  unplowed roads, a short stretch of snowmobile trail, a 0.25-mile road walk, and long stretches of ungroomed trail through the Green Mountain National Forest.  There is one long climb on a snowmobile trail and one steep, switch-backing descent to Rte. 30.  Otherwise the terrain is generally level, with some gentle ups and downs.

Length:
9.0 miles

Difficulty:
Except for the steep descent to Rte. 30, this section is easy to ski. Except for the 0.5 mile stretch on a snowmobile trail it is all ungroomed. Allow sufficient time if breaking trail through the usually deep snow. The intersection of Rte. 30 and French Hollow Rd. provides an intermediate bail-out point for breaking this section into two.

Trail Conditions & Updates – #CTsection6

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 6… #CTsection6.
