Ski & Snowshoe in the Woods: Forestry Tour with the Vermont Woodlands Association

Date and Time:

February 17, 2018 - 10:00am to 1:00pm


Northwoods Stewardship Center, 154 Leadership Drive East Charleston, VT 05833

Join the Northwoods and the Vermont Woodlands Association for a guided ski and snowshoe tour through the Spitzer Demonstration Forest (also a certified Tree Farm) at NorthWoods. On this tour, we’ll visit two recent timber harvests that were adapted to create a more resilient forest in a changing climate, while also providing valuable bird and wildlife habitat. Along the way you’ll have a chance to enjoy a variety of forest types and see varying management strategies, past and present. The tour will be approximately 2-3 miles of ungroomed, rolling terrain with possible off-trail exploring in the demonstration areas. This will be most enjoyable for experienced off-piste skiers with wide (60mm+), metal-edged cross country skis. Plan to be outside, dressed for the weather, and ready for any snow
conditions that Mother Nature delivers!

Ski/snowshoe rentals available: $10/$5

Hot beverages and snacks provided, as well as a chili with cornbread. If you have any dietary restrictions, let us know or pack your own thermos and lunch.
