The 300-mile Catamount Trail is now open to backcountry skiers with its recent completion. The trail extends from Massachuetts to Canada making it the longest backcountry ski trail in North America, according to the Rutland Herald. The project took 25 years to complete which began with three friends – Steve Bushey, Paul Jarris, and Ben Rose – as part of Bushey’s University of Vermont geography project. It was helped by countless others along the way. It’s divided into 31 secions, 6 to 13 miles long, so you can ski the parts you choose. "We’ve had people from Europe come to ski the trail," said Lenore Budd, trail manager. If your New Year’s resolution is to get more exercise, here’s your opportunity. It is estimated 60 people to date have skied the entire trail. Hey, do I hear your name being called to be number 61?
