This winter I am fundraising to support the Catamount Trail Association (CTA). The CTA does a lot of important work including the development and maintenance of public ski trails and backcounty zones in Vermont, protecting our mountain lands for all to use, and working to increase access to the outdoors through free tours, low cost events, and free youth learn-to-ski programming.
For my challenge this year I am planning to Fatbike 50km along the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail from Jeffersonville, VT to Morrisville, VT and back. I will complete this ride sometime before the CATGUT on Sunday, March 12th.
Please consider making a contribution to help me reach my fundraising goal of $1000.
Any amount will make a difference, and will be greatly appreciated.
The CATGUT is a charity ski touring experience for all ages and abilities in support of the Catamount Trail Association (CTA). The CTA has spent the last 39 years working to protect and expand access to Vermont's mountain lands.
The CTA is a member and donor supported organization, and 100% of the funds raised through this event will go to support trail conservation and maintenance, helping the CTA continue its work to protect 100% of the Catamount Trail, the worlds longest backcountry ski trail.
The Catamount Trail is a 300 mile long backcountry ski trail that runs the entire length of Vermont from Massachusetts all the way to Canada. It’s totally free to use and is one of Vermont’s most unique recreational assets. From easy cruising through the woods to exhilarating descents in waist deep powder, there’s something for everyone on the Catamount Trail.
In addition to managing the trail corridor, the Catamount Trail Association also organizes a large selection of backcountry tours, is involved in the conservation and protection of Vermont's mountain lands, and runs a number of youth programs serving well over 1000 kids each season. We want people to embrace winter and all of the great experiences it provides. So, whether you’re just learning how to ski or have been shredding the gnar for years we can help you have more fun!
