Vermont's Gateway To Backcountry Skiing And Riding

Section 9: Greendale Road to Healdville


This section passes primarily through state and national forest land mainly on groomed snowmobile trails. As of 2008, the two miles immediately South of Healdville on the North slope of Ludlow Mountain (Okemo) are no longer shared with snowmobiles.

12.6 miles

This section is intermediate with several difficult sections. Just south of Rte. 155 there are steep slopes and sharp turns that are shared with snowmobiles. Under icy conditions these steep sections require skins or expert ski skills. Caution should be taken when traveling this route, especially on weekends, when snowmobile traffic tends to be heaviest.

Trail Conditions & Updates – #CTsection9

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 9… #CTsection9.
