Vermont's Gateway To Backcountry Skiing And Riding

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. Our vision is to create a future in which Vermont is home to a world-class network of locally-supported winter backcountry trails and terrain accessible to outdoor travelers of all abilities and means. The Catamount Trail will be central to the network.

Mission: to connect people with the Catamount Trail and Vermont’s backcountry by promoting, protecting, and expanding winter trails and terrain.
