Our Mission

In 2018, the Prospect Mountain Association (PMA), a 501(c)(3) community nonprofit organization based in Bennington, Vermont, was established to purchase, protect and operate Prospect Mountain, a Nordic recreational center in Woodford, Vermont. Prospect Mountain Association’s purpose is to support community health and wellbeing by providing groomed cross-country ski trails, snowshoe trails and programs for a diverse population in the Southern Vermont, Western Massachusetts and Eastern New York communities, and to promote and develop the sport of cross-country skiing through related educational activities for these communities.

Cross country skiing for all ages and skill levels in rural Vermont. Open daily 9-5 (or sundown) in season as conditions allow. Prospect Mountain Nordic is a cross country ski center located in Woodford, Vermont.

What’s New?

The Prospect Mountain Association is pleased to again offer a Nordic ski instructional program for elementary school students beginning January 10.
This year five schools will be participating: Bennington Elementary, Monument, Pownal, Woodford, and Shaftsbury. The sessions will be held on Wednesday afternoons from 1-3pm.
Instruction and equipment will be provided free of charge thanks in part to the generous grant support Prospect has received from the Bennington Sports Foundation and the Killington World Cup Foundation.
Prospect board member Amie Witten-Smith commented “PMA is delighted to be able to give young people a chance to experience Nordic skiing- many of them for the first time. It is an important part of our mission to support the community in this way.

Prospect is a magical place where lollipops grow on trees.

We are open.


Open. Yesterday's warm weather has brought us to a thin base. Icy spots and bare spots on the trails. Lower loops are still passable. Base area is Icy. Trails faired much better though the warmth. Old skis or Rock skis recommended. Today is another warm day. With any luck we get a few inches of snow to keep us going.Think Snow.
