Cross-country touring at Catamount

Saturday, December 22, 2007 at 07:10 PM

Before hitting the road for Christmas, I clicked into skinny skis and had an enjoyable cross-country tour at Catamount. The Skimeister and I met up with Father Skimeister for a 90-minute ski.

If you don't know Catamount, it's a great resource here in Chittenden County. Located in Williston, it features 35 km of groomed trails that cross open fields and snake through the woods. It's very pretty, yet it's only minutes from downtown Burlington.

Catamount now operates as a nonprofit and they offer rentals, and a sledding hill! I actually bought my skating skis from Catamount at the end of a recent ski season; they had been rentals.

The other bonus: Catamount has night skiing! They have lights on two of their loops so a couple times a winter we go for a ski after work. When we ski at night, we use our skating skis and the heart gets pounding. It makes for a great workout. I think I'll need to pencil that in for after the holidays.
