Vermont's Gateway To Backcountry Skiing And Riding

Section 11: Patch Brook Road/Lake Ninevah to Tin Shanty

DEC 2016: Harvest operations are underway between Flying Cloud Camp and Money Brook Bridge, and reportedly will proceed west and cross the CT sometime later this winter.  The logger has promised to do his best to keep the trail open at all times and will inform the CTA when the logging is approaching and crossing the CT.   There may also be a harvest operation just north of Patch Brook Road. A loop trail adjacent to the CT may be used for skidding. If skiers stay on the through trail there should be very little overlap.  Please pay attention and proceed with caution in these areas.  



This is a mostly wilderness section running over Round Top and Burnt Mountains through hardwood forest. There are many excellent views. 

10.1 miles

This is a challenging section with several short, difficult stretches, which are steep and narrow. Take climbing skins, particularly for the ascent (and possibly the descent) of Burnt Mountain and Round Top.

Your membership dues make CTA’s free online maps and trail descriptions possible. Please join CTA today!

Trail Conditions & Updates – #CTsection11

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 11… #CTsection11.
