Why the Price Hike?
It is time to sign up for another year of great local, groomed cross country skiing! Your membership in the Memphremagog Ski Touring Foundation supports our 25 Km network of skate and classic groomed XC skiing and snowshoeing in the Derby/Newport area. But this year MSTF is pleased to present greatly expanded 4 season opportunities, and we are now offering winter, summer or year-round memberships. Our summer offerings, now called Memphremagog Trails, are fantastic for mountain biking, walking, and running, and can take you from the lake all the way to the Top of the World! We currently have 10 miles of exciting mountain bike trails, and within one year that will be expanded to 20 miles. Our fees have gone up and there are now several membership options, but we have reduced the price of season-long ski rentals. Because we are partnering with the Vermont Mountain Biking Association (VMBA.org), this gets a little complicated. By participating in VMBA you are supporting trail networks around the state and are entitled to ride at all of the 20+ state-wide chapters.
What if I just want to ski for a day, or bring an out-of-town guest? We welcome donations of the size you choose - you can do this online on the "donations" page
If you are renewing in response to the emailed renewal notice, choose the "renew" button only if you want a year-round family pass. We entered all previous members under this category as we loaded previous members to our new system. If you want to change to "individual", or "winter only", etc. then choose the "change membership" button.
Runners and Walkers: We are currently not requiring runners or walkers to become members to use the Memphremagog Trail network. However donations are welcome and we encourage everyone to become a member to try skiing and biking!
If you prefer to join the old-fashioned way, please download and print our 2019 registration form, and mail to:

MSTF remains committed to providing the best groomed xc skiing in the area. We also have a fleet of ski equipment for your season long rentals.
In the summer and fall, Derby trails are great for mountain biking, walking and running. Your membership is what supports this wonderful recreational resource.
