Irene's Impact on the Catamount Trail
Hurricane Irene left her mark on Vermont, and on the Catamount Trail. Trail assessments are still coming in from our partners and volunteers. The photos shown here reflect some of the worst damage on the trail. There is a lot of damage, but we want to assure you that most, if not all areas of the Catamount Trail, will be ready to ski this winter. Any trouble spots we are not able to rectify before snowfall will be noted on the appropriate Trail Section page of the website before the ski season begins.
Not surprisingly, we have some extra trail clearing in front of us. We will need to replace and repair bridges, as well as reroute around washouts and displaced culverts. If you'd like to help with the clean-up effort, take a look at our statewide list of trail workdays, taking place most weekends from now through early December. Revisit the schedule for updates and additions as we prioritize trail repairs.

We need your help on the trail this fall more than ever, so please consider joining us for a fun day in the woods, or donating to the Trail Fund.
