$15. The Northeast Kingdom Backcountry Coalition (NEKBC), a chapter of the Catamount Trail Association, has worked closely with the Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation to create a new backcountry ski destination on Mount Hor, above magnificent Willoughby Lake. While many have enjoyed the groomed cross-country trails in this section of the Willoughby State Forest, the NEKBC has helped to make the steeper terrain more accessible to backcountry skiers. Bring a bag lunch, hot thermos, and plenty of warm layers, as well as alpine touring gear.
