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.
Catamount Trail Association
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!
