Vermont's Gateway To Backcountry Skiing And Riding

Multi-Day Tours

The 2018 CTA Tour dates and locations are listed below.  Please contact us if you have any questions. 


Visit the trail section webpages to learn more about the terrain on our Multi-Day Tours (MDT’s) and for written descriptions and trail maps. A list of lodging options along the MDT route will be made available after you sign up. All participants are responsible for arranging their own lodging and meals. Skiers may sign-up for as many days as they wish… even one. A non-refundable contribution to the CTA is required to hold a spot on a Multi-Day Tour. 

Each tour page describes in detail every section of the tour and includes difficulty ratings, and logistical information including contact information for your tour coordinator. Please contact your tour coordinator if you are unsure whether your current fitness or ability level is a good match for a specific MDT.

MDT Waiver Form

Prior to being accepted on a MDT the Tour Coordinator will screen (by email or phone) registrants with whose skiing ability they are not familiar. Interested participants should feel free to contact the Tour Coordinator directly to determine whether the entire tour or specific days of the tour are a good match for their abilities and experience.

Sign-ups are not final until the Tour Coordinator screening is complete and the following items have been received by the CTA office:

  1. A non-refundable donation to the CTA to hold a position on the tour of $50 for 3-8 days and $25 for 1-2 days (Paid is made via PayPal as part of the online registration process).
  2. A signed waiver form (Waiver is signed as part of online registration process).


To sign up for a MDT and reserve space for each of the days you plan to ski: visit the individual tour pages and scroll to the registration area at the bottom of the page. You can also call the CTA office at 802-864-5794. There may be capacity limitations on certain days so register early!
