BRATTLEBORO — The Brattleboro Recreation & Parks Department and Brattleboro Outing Club are collaborating to provide family snowshoeing and cross-country skiing on the Brattleboro Outing Club Trails Dec. 28-30 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day.

The suggested donation is $10 per person and $20 per family. Place all donations in the black mailbox located at the bulletin board at the trails head.

You can enjoy snowshoeing or XC skiing with your household on the Brattleboro Outing Club (BOC) trails located at Brattleboro Country Club (BCC). There are miles of scenic, well-groomed trails for beginners as well as the most advanced participants. If you do not have snowshoes at home, you can borrow them from Brooks Memorial Library or bring your XC skis from home, and head over to the trails located at the back end of the parking lot at Brattleboro Country Club for some snowshoeing or XC skiing fun. You should attend by yourself or with your household members, adhere to proper social distancing, and follow COVID-19 guidelines while entering, exiting and while on the trails. You will be required to sign in upon arrival for contact tracing purposes. The sign-in sheet is located at the bulletin board at the head of the trail system.
