Williston, VT – Mammut, the Swiss quality providers of alpine gear and apparel, is excited to partner with Protect Our Winters (POW) for the company’s “Mammut Stampy Stomp 15k” trail running race. Hosted by the Catamount Outdoor Family Center and named after Mammut’s iconic mascot, Stampy, the family friendly race will take place on October 5th at the Catamount Outdoor Family Center at 10:00 am.
“We’re excited to host our first trail running event locally to support the Catamount Outdoor Family Center and raise awareness for the work POW is doing to ensure sustainable winter recreation around the world,” said Bill Supple, CEO of Mammut North America. “It’s a great time to transition into the winter season as soon we’ll shift from trail running to Nordic skiing at Catamount.”
All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Catamount Outdoor Family Center and Protect Our Winters. Protect Our Winters was founded by professional snowboarder, Jeremy Jones, and works to engage and mobilize the winter sports community to lead the fight against climate change.

About Catamount Outdoor Center
Catamount Outdoor Family Center began as a cross country ski center in 1978 as a way to utilize the unique 500 acre property. Since that time Catamount has grown to include summer season activities such as mountain biking, hiking, trail running and winter season activities of snowshoeing and sledding. Catamount also produces numerous events, weekly races and an extensive summer camp program that currently serves 400 campers each summer and a trail network that includes a diverse variety of trails covering roughly 20 miles. Since 2005, Catamount has been operating as a 501(c)3 not profit, and strives to offer opportunities for all ages and abilities. The business began as a means to keep the property preserved for people to use and enjoy into the future and now, almost 35 years later, it continues to offer opportunities to activities in the outdoors.
