This past winter, the land encompassing Vermont’s Bolton Valley Nordic Center and adjacent backcountry was placed on the market by its owner, Redstone. With the fate of the land uncertain, the Friends of Bolton Valley Nordic and Backcountry was formed with the intent of securing long protection of and access to this prized stretch of the Green Mountains. The group has embarked on a year-long fundraising effort, in partnership with the Vermont Land Trust, with the goal of purchasing and conserving the 1100+ acre property sometime in 2013. Here’s an update on the issue, brought to you by our friends at Backcountry Magazine, here.
