Join fellow backcountry skiers and boarders as we clear blowdowns and faceslappers from some of the abandoned ski slopes at the former Hogback Ski Area. The ski area went out of business in 1984. Today it is the Hogback Mountain Conservation Area, owned by the town of Marlboro, VT. On several of the former slopes, dedicated backcountry skiers have kept ski-able lines open over the years. On this annual clean-up day we need people to haul brush, trim woody growth, and chainsaw fallen trees. Bring your own favorite tool or borrow one of ours. Meet at 1:00 in the parking lot on the south side of Route 9 just west of the gift shop.
This annual event is held on the Friday after Thanksgiving. Wouldn't you rather be out in the woods instead of in a shopping mall?
Note that this annual work on specific slopes has been approved by the town's Hogback Preservation Commission and Select Board. Please do not do any clearing or cutting on your own anywhere on the mountain.
