Your donation  helps us buy trail signs, blue diamonds to mark ski and snowshoe trails.  Your donation buys tools to clear the trails.  And your donation helps us maintain snow shelters. CONC is a 501 (c) (3) organization and your donation is tax-deductible.


As a member, you can volunteer to work on trails – marking them and clearing them.  You also can join us on our outings – weekly and overnight cross country ski and snowshoe outings.


Volunteer to help us keep the back country ski and snowshoe trails clear and well-marked.  Help us cut wood for our snow shelters.  Help us maintain those shelters.
