February 19th – February 26th

 Stay informed by checking our Trails and Conditions page for updates. The 2-3″ of light blowing snow last night means there is skiing at Catamount again. Goose Hill and lower Night loop are once again the recommended areas to ski. We groomed this morning and found Sandmans, upper Night, and Woodstrace skiable but many thin areas and trail hazards are right under the surface. Bikers and snowshoes can enjoy their groomed trails and please stay to the edge of ski trails in shared areas. Sledding hill is back in action and always open and free to the whole community. Stop by to try a rental bike, skis, or snowshoes and enjoy the winter wonderland.

Coming up later this month is the Winter Wanderers Camp from February 26th to March 1st for children aged 8-12 years. This camp is a fantastic opportunity for young adventurers to learn about basic outdoor skills, winter ecology, Leave No Trace principles, and environmental stewardship. Sign your child up today to embark on this enriching winter adventure!

Looking forward to spring, we’re excited to announce an Eclipse Viewing Party on Monday, April 8th, at the Catamount Outdoor Family Center. This event is set to offer a remarkable experience, allowing you to witness a celestial spectacle surrounded by fellow nature and astronomy enthusiasts. 

Member up today to enjoy all the activities and benefits that COFC offers, like early Summer Camp access starting on February 1st for our Annual Full Access Members. For more fun opportunities, please visit our Events calendar and lessons page.

If the ground is fully white, wearing snowshoes is right.
