2020-2021 Season: Cross-Country Skiing is an outdoor sport and can be practiced at a distance. Our snow grooming team is geared up and looking forward to creating beautifully groomed trails for our BOC Season Pass Holders and Day Pass Visitors. Day Pass Visitors can be Vermonters or others from out of state who meet the Vermont COVID-19 Guidelines, including quarantine requirements.
Unfortunately, due to safety concerns surrounding COVID -19, our ski hut will not be open and rentals will not be possible this winter, but our skiing will still be excellent. Our personal cars serve as lodges and signing-in with contact information before skiing will be required. All skiers and snowshoers will need to wear a mask when not skiing or snowshoeing and when signing-in at the Kiosk. We also will need to keep at least 6 feet apart from people not in our immediate household.
33 km of groomed trails as snow and weather conditions warrant.
Located at the Brattleboro Country Club (BCC)
73 Senator Gannett Drive
HUT NUMBER: 802.246.7843
(winter use only)
NOTICE: Bikes, dogs, and walkers are not permitted on the Brattleboro Country Club property or our ski trails.
The BOC lease with the BCC only permits skiing and snowshoeing on designated trails. The BCC has asked us not to ski on the fairways and to keep our groomed trails on the “rough” parts of the golf course, with a few approved exceptions. Skiers can take their dogs on BOC groomed trails (Dog Trot) on the field adjacent to the golf course. A new easy access dog-friendly trail to Dog-Trot is now available from the parking lot.

The BOC has not approved biking on any of our groomed trails.
Come join the BOCXC and ski/snowshoe with us.

Volunteers sustain our club and its century-old tradition of serving the community by drawing its citizens outside to play. Our volunteer trail crews work hard to prep the trails in the fall and groom them all winter to provide the best skiing possible. Our program volunteers share their love of winter and being outside with school children by teaching them to embrace winter in all its conditions and have a blast doing so.
