Popular ski trails in northern Vermont

I want to take my friend in northern vermont skiing this weekend, preferably something ungroomed but popular enough for trail to be broken. Small to moderate hills good for a first timer, any suggestions?

I was thinking maybe Lake Carmi, I know there are nature trails there. Anyone know if they are usually broken during the winter? Any hills in the mix? Thanks!

Or a website with good info would be helpful too. I couldnt find much on ski trails other than groomed centers.

Catamount trail might be appropriate if you pick the right section:

Little River State Park is always fun. Steep in places, sometimes someone will be in before you to break trail, sometimes not... you can park near the dam on the access road - although last year we went and were able to drive up a plowed road to the campground gate and skied from there.

You can also ski in from the Cotton Brook side in Moscow, VT.

Also Groton State Park - they have trails around Seylon Lodge, and there are lots of other places to get to in that area. Not sure on shared use - if you want something nice and quiet double check any shared trails with sleds.

And near Camel's Hump -

And don't forget about Bolton - lots of 'groomed' trails - but lots of places to explore off the beaten path:

Thanks for the tips, I will definitely check out some sections of the Catamount trail by myself sometime.

We ended up going to the St Albans town forest. There is quite an extensive trail network there and surprisingly varied terrain. Trail was broken, but we didnt encounter anyone for the several hours we were there on a Saturday. Great little hidden gem in an unexpected location.
