The 2014 ski season is fast approaching and you should start thinking about participating in one of more of our tours. CTA’s guided ski tours are a great way to discover new sections of the Catamount Trail and make new ski friends. Please explore the pull-down menu for more information concerning our Multi-Day Tours, Single Day Tours and Special Events.
Please note: Not all 2014 event dates are available at this time. The complete Events Schedule will be posted sometime in December.
Calendar and Tour Schedule
The CTA Calendar offers dates, descriptions and contact information for each Multi-Day Tour and Single Day Tour offered throughout the year (as information is available), as well as links to each of our Special Events.Check the calendar often for new and rescheduled tours. Last minute tours arise when snow conditions are good. The Complete CTA Winter Events Schedule will be available in December 2013.
For the more adventuresome our very popular Multi-Day Tours (MDTs) provide an opportunity to ski many sections of the CT in one winter (MDT Tours are for CTA members only, join here today!). For our Multi-Day Tours, we offer two Weeklong Tours (WLTs) and two Four-Day Tours (4DTs). You could even become an End-to-Ender, an exclusive group that is growing every year. You may sign-up for as many days of a MDT as you wish, even one. We ask for a modest contribution to the CTA to hold a spot on MDTs. Please visit our MDT webpage or our calendar for tour dates and descriptions (as available).To sign up for a MDT or Special Events, please see the MDT or Special Events section of our website. All CTA Tour Leaders are volunteers. Registration for 2014 tours will open on November 1, 2013.

Our Single-Day Tours (SDT) are FREE and open to non-members. SDT dates for winter 2014 will be announced in December 2013. Please visit our online calendar throughout the winter for updates and newly added tours. To sign-up for a Single Day Tour contact the tour leader at least a few days in advance.
