FEBRUARY 25th -  ROPE TOW CLOSED TODAY & TOMORROW - We thought we had one more afternoon today folks, but unfortunately we will not be able to open today…..too much water and too little snow with last nights weather. Maybe we'll hope for a mega March snowstorm? 

FATSCUTNEY AND WINTERFEST 2017

February 11, 2017

ASCUTNEY TRAILS - Fresh snow this week gave us great conditions at the rope tow for our inaugural Fatscutney fatbike race and Winterfest. The hill was a hype of activity with fatbikers, skiers, snowboarders, snowshoers and back-country skiers. Our warming hut was enjoyed by all for a warm lunch and break in between outside fun. A big thank-you to all who made this day a huge success!

Winter 2017 - We seek your support as we embark on our annual Community Fund Drive to help with the costs of running our organization, maintaining our trails, and keeping activities like our community Rope Tow affordable.  We hope the future of Mount Ascutney excites you!  Read more about donating here.
