Latest news - January 2017

January 20th 2017 - ROPE TOW WEEKEND UPDATE: Unfortunately we can't open this weekend.  Although we received about 5" of snow this week, we didn't have much of a base, so after we groomed the hill there is not enough snow to cover the ski hill. We need about 3 more inches.

Community Q&A Meeting - The Ascutney Outdoors Board of Directors invites community members to join us for an open Q&A session on Sunday January 22nd at 10.30am in the downstairs meeting room of the Brownsville Town Hall.

With the purchase of the burned base lodge complete, we are now in a position to discuss our plans publicly.  We welcome all who are interested in the efforts of Ascutney Outdoors to bring questions and learn more about the future plans and goals being discussed for our community recreation area at Ascutney Trails.  We look forward to seeing you there.

January 8th 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.
