IMG_7763

Catamount is introducing Guided Nature Hikes. Explore Catamount beyond its trails by foot on a guided hike in the snow with an experienced naturalist.

Explore winter in the Berkshires at Catamount Mountain Resort! Reserve a guided tour for a tranquil walk through the snow. Learn about wildlife, trees, geology, and history of the mountain from an experienced naturalist.

There are two levels of hikes – a 90 minute adventure, and a 150 minute hike.

90 Minute Adventures are recommended for all ages. Never been snowshoeing or winter hiking? No problem! Learn how with the 90 minute adventure. You will walk along flat and steep terrain for over an hour. Depending on snow conditions, you will either use snowshoes, microspikes, or a good pair of boots to help you with traction along the way. Please call ahead for weather and snow conditions for the day you would like to reserve.

150 Minute Adventures are designed for those who are familiar with hiking in winter climates and are comfortable with steep terrain. The experience will cover over a mile of mountain trails. Breaks will be taken to enjoy the scenery and learn about nature, history, geology and more.
