Human-Powered Skiing in the Borderlands
a Chapter of the Catamount Trail Association
Fall 2022 Work Parties
What you need to know:
When you work at Dutch Hill as a volunteer, you are considered part of the US Forest Service staff, so you have to abide by their safety regs.
You must wear long sleeves, long pants (no shorts) and sturdy shoes or boots (no sandals).
Everyone on the mountain must wear a hard hat and gloves. We have extras to lend out if you don't have your own.
To operate a chain saw, you must have a US Forest Service certification. Contact us if you are interested in getting certified.
Bring your own favorite hand tool or borrow one from our stash. Brush cutters come in handy for some projects. No special certification is needed to operate a brush cutter.
Read the applicable USFS safety documents before attending your first DHASH workday. You'll find them here.
