Building Community in the Backcountry

WMBA is a proud BC chapter affiliate of Catamount Trail Association (CTA).

Home: Welcome
Mad River Valley Backcountry Coalition (MRVBC) Roundtable  2022:

Upcoming Events

We will be hosting weekly Friday morning uphills all winter long at one of our favorite local mountains, Berkshire East, in Charlemont, MA.  Come out and get some early laps, test out your new gear before hitting the backcountry, and meet some new folks in the community while you are at it.

Meet at the Bobcat carpet for 645am to start climbing at 7am.


For WMBA members and non-members.


*Berkshire East Uphill or Seasons Pass required.

So, you've joined WMBA and now want to get out to explore our backcountry zones, but don't know where to begin?  We'll meet in small groups on selected days throughout the ski season to familiarize ourselves with the uphill skin track, the trails, glades and exit points at each of our managed areas.  This is also great way to meet new ski buddies, and familiarize yourself with new gear too.

Dates TBA

For WMBA members only.

Zealand Falls Hut Backcountry Tour
March 10 (Fri) through March 12th (Sun)

Join us this winter for a two night stay at the AMC's Zealand Falls Hut in the White Mountain National Forest.  Zealand Hut is one of only three self-service winter AMC huts and a perfect base camp for exploring the surrounding--highly-scenic--area.  We'll ski in to Zealand Hut Friday morning and spend Saturday touring through  Zealand Notch to Thoreau Falls, Shoals Pond and perhaps discovering a few powder turns too, before our exit on Sunday. 

We have a limited number of reservations in our booking block so email early for more information and to guarantee your spot on this scenic multi-day tour.

*This Zealand Falls Hut tour is an organized event hosted by WMBA, but not a guided or instructional tour and all fees are paid directly to the AMC using our reservation block code.
