Vermont's Gateway To Backcountry Skiing And Riding

Section 27: Eden/Craftsbury Town Line To Craftsbury Outdoor Center


This section offers a combination of gentle, rolling, un-groomed terrain through the woods, and the groomed trails of the Craftsbury Outdoor Center. A short stretch, between Rte. 14 and Craftsbury Common, is shared with snowmobiles.

7.6 miles

This section requires an intermediate level of technical skills. The un-groomed portion of the trail is narrow but the slopes are gentle. The snow on the short stretch shared with snowmobiles is groomed and well packed. The Craftsbury Outdoor Center trail network is well groomed throughout the ski season. 

Note: Please remember to check in at Craftsbury Outdoor Center and purchase a trail pass if you are utilizing the CT within their trail system. CTA members receive a coupon for a discounted trail pass in their Membership Rewards Book.

Trail Conditions & Updates – #CTsection27

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 27… #CTsection27.
