Many years ago it was common for towns to have small ski hills for their local community. Rope tows, T-bars and small lifts would carry people up the hills, schools often provided the equipment and kids often skied for free. Grooming was done by locals who would side step up the mountain and the snowmakers were nothing more than mother nature.
607 ski resorts throughout New England have closed over the years and most have been dismantled with their trails overgrown and all but forgotten. However, at Hogback Mountain in Marlboro, Vermont, remnants of the lifts and buildings can still be found. A big thanks to the volunteers at the Hogback Mountain Conservation Association for maintaining the hiking trails and allowing for the public to access this beautiful property today. Let’s take a look at what can still be found while exploring this abandoned Ski Resort in VT.
