Volunteers are turning out by the dozens to cut and clear new back country ski/ride glades on the south side of Brandon Gap. Two more work weekends are planned (Oct 8-9, Nov 5-6). The project, thought to be the first of its kind on a National Forest, began last fall after approval from the US Forest Service.
Nearly 50 volunteers turned out September 17 and 18 to work with RASTA-led crews on trails from the top of Goshen Mountain to Sunrise Shelter and Long Trail Parking lot on Route 73.
By the time snow flies this fall/winter RASTA hopes to have 8 or 9 lines cut and cleared as well as uphill routes (skin tracks) in Bear Brook basin, Goshen Mountain and No Name Peak.
We’ve got 2 more volunteer weekends planned! Drop us a line if you’re interested in “earning some turns” as a volunteer.
