Vermont's Gateway To Backcountry Skiing And Riding

Membership Benefits


Discount Skiing

Every member will receive the Catamount Trail Rewards Book filled with over 80 coupons good for half price and discount skiing at most Vermont nordic and alpine resorts, as well as discounts at numerous specialty retailers and other Vermont businesses. ($1,200+ Value)


Free Ski Tours

Enjoy FREE single-day and multi-day backcountry tours on the Catamount Trail and other locations around New England! Led by volunteer tour leaders, our tours are a great way to discover new backcountry zones and meet fellow winter enthusiasts. Last season we offered ~70 opportunities to slide around in the woods ranging from cross country tours along the Catamount Trail, to vertical assaults of Mt Mansfield on splitboard and alpine touring equipment. Details for these events are available in the Catamount Trail News e-bulletin during the fall and winter, and on our Tours Page.


Event Discounts

Members receive discounts on CTA event registration fees at events like the Ladies Nordic Ski Expo, Get Out & Backcountry Clinics, the Race To The Top Of Vermont, and others!


Merchandise Discounts

Take advantage of member discounts on CTA publications and merchandise including the Catamount Trail guidebook! This full-color guide transforms the 300 mile long Catamount Trail into 31 day-trip length sections. Features include: color maps, elevation profiles, mileage, access points, and route descriptions. Also, new Catamount Trail maps are in the works. There will be two different maps covering the entire trail, and when they are ready to go you can be sure our member discount will apply to them as well. 


Warm Fuzzies

Supporting the Catamount Trail Association benefits the entire Vermont backcountry community. Through CTA programs such as the Vermont Backcountry Alliance (VTBC) we are working to facilitate public access to, and development of new and existing backcountry terrain while promoting conservation and responsible management and use of Vermont’s mountain environment.
