Since 1937, the Lyndon Outing Club in Vermont has served as a place for locals to learn how to ski & ride. It will now also be a place for them to learn to mountain bike.
The ski hill opened up a free mountain biking park on Saturday. The trails are not lift-serviced, as there is a steep .5-mile uphill line. The downhill routes are a primary .8-mile downhill run known as Mo’s Route, and a skills park and jump line near the end of Mo’s Route.
The other giant project that the Lyndon Outing Club is working on is adding a snowmaking system for the first time ever. It’s frankly remarkable that a New England ski hill has been able to remain open without snowmaking for eighty-five years, but LOC has a resilient community that’s behind it. The new snowmaking system would be focused on getting the Face trail open.
They are looking to raise money for the project. If you’re interested in donating to the cause, you can call David Williams at 802-745-7115.
