Does anyone know good spots to skin and ski with dogs off leash in New England? I've been to the Fitchburg, MA area and love it, but looking to learn more places. Thanks! I care more about bringing my fun pup with me, than the extreme level of skiing or hiking...

Hi @aimc444 - Thanks for reaching out! I'm based in northern Vermont, so my knowledge is weighted slightly more in this direction, but if you can meet the current travel guidelines and you're willing to drive a bit there are a lot of great options around!
The following places are known to allow dogs, though you might want to check in before you go to make sure rules haven't shifted:
The 300 mile Catamount Trail (Vermont) allows dogs, though you are required to have a leash with you since much of the trail goes through private property
Nordic areas seem to be more clear with dog access than backcountry, touring-focus public lands, but this should be a good start. Hopefully some other fellow New Englanders can weigh in with their suggestions too.
It would be great to hear updates on where you and you pup end up exploring this spring! Enjoy!
