Catamount Trail Express - Bolton to Nebraska Valley Ski Shuttle


Date: Jan 27 2018

Come explore one of the more rugged and beautiful backcountry ski trails in Vermont and help support the Catamount Trail Association’s Ski Cubs Youth Ski Program. 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 a 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 last Saturday in January and the first three (3) Saturdays in February the Catamount Trail Express will offer shuttle service between the Parking Lot on Old County Road in Nebraska Valley, and the beginning of Section 22 at the 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 their 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. Every individual in responsible for themselves and it’s strongly encouraged that every skier bring a small backpack with food, water, and extra clothes since there are no aid stations in the backcountry. Climbing skins are highly recommended.
