Craftsbury Outdoor Center Day Membership Holders may ski any of the Highland Lodge trails as part of their day membership (click for a complete list of privileges).

Craftsbury's too much fun to come just one day per winter and our pricing on memberships has made a season of skiing much more affordable.

If you're a Craftsbury or Albany resident, you are eligible for a complimentary membership. Complete the resident membership form so we can keep in touch with you as well as get waiver acceptance. Annual and complimentary memberships offer slightly different benefits, read more.

Trail landowners receive annual memberships as one part of the package of benefits we offer by way of thanking you for your generosity. Drop us a line if you have questions about this package as well as any other questions.

** - Individual students skiing for a day are $5. Vermont High School nordic ski teams training at Craftsbury, with their coach as part of a workout, can ski for free. Please call in advance of your arrival, especially during periods of low trail counts, to ensure that your team will have the room it needs. Thanks!

Weekend Highland Lodge Shuttle

As soon as conditions are good during the season, we run a shuttle bus Saturdays and Sundays to the Greensboro Trails (check out the map). We ask a fee of $5 for the shuttle to cover the cost of bus use, pay at the Activity Center prior to boarding (Bus departs 9:30am). Max capacity of 48 passengers.

While we plan to run the shuttle both weekend days, in the event of poor weather or trail conditions, we will not run the shuttle – call ahead to confirm! Ski Shop staff will make the decision about shuttle running at 4:30pm the day before. 

When will this get started? We're started now (Jan 1, 2017), but again, it's always worth a call to the Touring Center to confirm the current shuttle schedule and availability.

Shuttle runs between the Center's or Highland Lodge's Touring Centers.

Weekend shuttle
Leaves Craftsbury: 9:30am
Arrives Greensboro: 9:45am (leaving immediately to return to Craftsbury)
Arrives Craftsbury: around 10:00am

The above schedule will run January - February. We determine spring schedules based on demand - good to give a confirming call before making the drive up!

Ski Trail Use Guidelines

We are grateful to the many landowners who allow us to groom trails on their property. Please respect the land we ski on.

  • Unless signed as one-way, all trails are two-way trails. Always be aware of oncoming skiers.
  • Stay to the right when meeting oncoming skiers.
  • Downhill skiers have the right of way.
  • If you stop, please step to the side of the trail.
  • Please do not damage the classic track by skating or herringboning on top of it.
  • Skiing on closed trails is prohibited and potentially dangerous.
  • Dogs are welcome on the lakes. Check at Nordic Center for other options.
  • Some of our trails intersect and join snowmobile trails, use caution in these areas. Please be aware of the shared use, and note where the ski trail departs again. 
  • Fatbikes share selected ski trails, under certain conditions. Cyclists, review those rules before heading out.
