Vermont Winter Excursion

Welcome to the Vermont Back Country

Rick from Main Beach along with friends toured several Vermont ski resorts and remote back country areas this January.

Vermont Downhill Skiing

 Expert terrain is available in the back country and it can be very challenging. Know your limitations before attempting something that gets you into trouble.

Alternating between snow boarding, down hill skiing, snowshoeing and cross country skiing makes for a busy schedule.

 Always make a plan and let someone know where you are going when skiing in the back country.

Vermonts Northern Woodlands

 It is great to be prepared on the trail with the best outerwear and equipment from Patagonia and Dakine. Full day excursions require carrying ample hydration and food suppies. Burton snowboards and Alpina nordic ski equipment round out the quiver. Check out http://www.mainbeach.com for more information on great water and winter sports gear and clothing.

Patagonia and Dakine

 Main Beach offers Ski and Snowboard tuning in the shop. When traveling check to see if your Inn or Motor lodge has a tuning bench should you require a quick tune.

 Did you know the Catamount trail runs from Massachusetts to the Canadian Border, a length of over 300 miles?

Canada anyone?

Catamount Trail

 Sections of the Catamount trail are groomed while others are all natural terrain.

Stowe Vermont Farm

The Catamount trail is well represented in Stowe, Vermont with 4 Cross Country centers and the local land trust all participating in the trail network. Stowe, Vermont is a beautiful place to visit in the winter.

At the end of a long day on the slopes or on back country trails it is fun to meet with friends at your favorite watering hole.
