Summer is Here!

Summer is a busy time at Ascutney Outdoors.  The AOC is being used for private and public parties by local residents (50 Year Celebration) and community events, such the upcoming Open Mic Night on August 3rd where you can enjoy the sounds of local musicians.

Several of our signature outside events will come to the  mountain soon – Point to Point and Ragnar Team Relays.  These events attract a lot of visitors and raise awareness of our year-round activities.  Even if you aren’t an ultra runner or rider – most of us aren’t – it’s great fun to stop by and check out the excitement, taste some treats from food trucks, as well as some family fun offered at the events.  You may not know that these events also raise nearly $250,000 in support of several local charities, as well as fees that support our overhead and STAB’s trail maintenance.

Paradise Sports is open on weekends in the lower level of the Ascutney Outdoors Center.  Paradise offers great trailside service and repairs, as well as rentals.
