Vermont's Gateway To Backcountry Skiing And Riding

Other Events, Tours & Instruction

Here at the Catamount Trail Association we are all about backcountry skiing and we want everyone to know about everything related to getting outside in the woods on skis in the winter here in the Northeast. So, if you organize or know of a ski related event happening this winter please let us know as we would be happy to share information about your event with our members and anyone else that stumbles upon our site.
