What we'll do
Come explore one of the more rugged and beautiful backcountry ski trails in Vermont and help support the Catamount Trail Associations Ski Cubs Youth Ski Program (http://catamounttrail.org/ski-cubs/). Section 22 of the Catamount Trail runs between Bolton Valley Resort and the Trapp Family Lodge and features a narrow trail in the spruce forest above 2700 feet, with long descent through open forest, and marvelous views in all directions. This section of trail is perfect for experienced skiers who possess a true sense of adventure and are prepared for the unexpected.

On the first Saturday in January, and the first three (3) Saturdays in February the Catamount Trail Express will offer shuttle service between the parking lot off Old County Road in Nebraska Valley, and Bolton Valley Nordic Center. This will allow a participant to ski from Bolton Valley back to their car in Nebraska Valley without having to deal with the hassle of setting up your own car shuttle.

Participating skiers should expect to take between four (4) and six (6) hours to complete this section of trail. Conditions on the course can vary significantly and will play a large role in determining how long it takes to finish this section of the Catamount Trail. Each individual is encouraged to bring a small backpack with food, water, and extra clothes since there will be no official aid stations or support on the course. Climbing skins are highly recommended.
