Burkies Volunteer Muscles to Catamount Trail Association


On Saturday September 9, 21 Burkies joined staff Viv Buckley for a day of community work and lumber clearing on the Catamount Trail.

The Catamount Trail Association (CTA) is a non-profit, member-driven organization that develops, manages, and conserves the Catamount Trail, a public-access ski trail that runs the length of Vermont from Massachusetts to Canada. The CTA builds partnerships to support the Trail, and fosters awareness and stewardship of Vermont’s diverse landscapes through promotion and use of the Trail. Founded in 1984, the organization also advocates backcountry and cross-country skiing for the quality of life, recreational, health, economic and educational benefits they provide.

The Catamount Trail is Vermont’s end-to-end cross country ski trail. The CTA conserves, protects, and maintains the 300-mile Catamount Trail for the thousands of skiers and snowshoers who use and support the trail each year.
