Welcome to the VTBC!

BACKGROUND: Since the fall of 2013, a dedicated group of backcountry skiers and riders in Vermont has been working with the Catamount Trail Association (CTA) to explore the idea a newly envisioned coalition, the Vermont Backcountry Alliance (VTBC), working in close collaboration with the CTA. In partnership with the CTA and a growing list of individuals, organizations and businesses around the state, VTBC aims to be a unified voice for Vermont’s backcountry and human-powered skiing and riding community.

To get involved, please visit our Get Involved page, and please consider joining or supporting to the CTA, which is now accepting grants and donations in support of backcountry skiing and riding in Vermont.

Also, we’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas about the VTBC and Vermont backcountry (please leave your comments within any post or page on this site), and please join the discussion on our VTBC Facebook and Twitter pages, too. If you have any questions about the VTBC, please contact us via email at Thanks!

PROPOSED MISSION: The Vermont Backcountry Alliance (VTBC) seeks to protect, advance and advocate for human-powered backcountry skiing and snowboarding in Vermont. The VTBC facilitates public access to backcountry terrain while promoting the conservation and responsible management of our mountain environment.
