Multi-Day Tour Schedule and Requirements 2013
This season we are offering two Weeklong Tours (WLTs) and two 3-Day Tours (3DTs). Multi-Day Tours (MDTs) provide an opportunity to ski more of the Catamount Trail in one winter and enjoy the company of more people. Skiers may sign-up for as many days as they wish, EVEN ONE.
View the trail sections to understand more about the sections in each MDT and to review the descriptions and trail maps. A list of lodging options along the MDT route will be made available. All participants are responsible for arranging their own lodging and meals.
Each tour page describes in detail each section of the tour with difficulty rating, and logistical information including contact information for your tour coordinator. Please contact your tour coordinator if you are unsure about your skill level match with the MDTs.
