Hazen's Notch Association in northern Vermont is all about plentiful snow, spectacular scenery, uncrowded trails and friendly people. The cross country ski touring center at Hazen's Notch is blessed with a topography that is ideally suited to nordic skiing - rolling meadows, soft hills, our own 2,800' mountain and views of mountains in all directions.

Located at the top of Vermont in the "Covered Bridge Town" of Montgomery near the Jay Peak Ski Resort, Hazenís Notch is on the western edge of the beautiful, uncrowded and snowy Northeast Kingdom. The Hazen's Notch / Jay Peak area is known for receiving more snow than any other part of Vermont.

40 Miles of groomed and marked trails pass through 2,500 acres of mixed maple, birch and evergreen forest and across gentle, open meadows. There are spectacular views of Hazenís Notch and numerous peaks over 3,000í in elevation in the Jay Range and Cold Hollow Range of the Green Mountains which completely encircle the trail system. The Hazen's Notch Association trails are considered to be some of the most scenic trails in all of Vermont. Link to Snow Report

As a conservation land trust and environmental education center we design and manage our x-c ski trails to be in harmony with the landscape. Visitors often comment about the varied forest types, numerous animal tracks and careful land stewardship practices that they observe when skiing the Hazen's Notch Trails.
