Save the Bolton Backcountry

Those of us who love the Bolton Backcountry are fortunate that the Vermont Land Trust has stepped up to protect this land in perpetuity.  One of the best places to find fresh powder stashes, this land accesses trails and glades loved by nordic and telemark skiers alike.  According to the VLT's Press Release, they've "signed a contract to purchase the 1,161 acres that hosts the Bolton Valley Nordic and backcountry trails."  This keeps the land out of private hands and will insure its use by the public for years to come. 

To complete this deal the Land Trust needs to raise over $1M dollars.  That's where you come in.  Learn more about how you can be involved in the effort to Save the Bolton Valley Nordic and Backcountry trail network.  If you like you can just send a donation to:
