Join NorthWoods as we set out on a tour on the Catamount Trail, starting at the Bolton Nordic Center and ending at the Trapp Family Lodge. The Catamount Trail guidebook describes this tour as a “rugged, back-country tour climbing 1300 feet and descending 2300 feet, featuring a narrow trail in the spruce forest, a long descent through open forest and marvelous views in many directions.” The NorthWoods guides will explore off-piste sections along the route. Suited for intermediate and advanced skiers, accustomed to travelling by telemark or AT. Skins required.
