Vermont Self Guided Skiing Details
How difficult is the skiing/snowshoeing?
The trails used range from gentle, groomed trails at the cross-country/Nordic centers and inn trail networks to unbroken backcountry trails with significant elevation gain. The Touring Cat is more flexible, with the three touring centers each sporting at least 30 km of groomed trails in networks ranging from 50 to 70 km each. At every center, some trails are suitable for beginners/novices, others are intermediate, and some are enough to challenge advanced skiers. The Wild Cat is moderate between Chipman Inn and Blueberry Hill, moderate-to-easy between Blueberry Hill and The Inn on Park Street, and very challenging from Brandon Gap coming in to Mountain Top and Fox Creek. Wild Cat skiers break trail much of the way on the Catamount Trail.
Can I ski or snowshoe door to door between the inns?
Please see the descriptions of the Touring Cat and the Wild Cat. The Touring Cat relies on you using your car while you ski/snowshoe primarily by included day pass at touring centers with options for the backcountry / Catamount Trail segment that crosses each of them; the Wild Cat is designed with our driving you to trailheads to facilitate skiing to-the-door or from-the-door each day of your trip.
Our skiing/snowshoeing itineraries are available in January and February only.
