When the Hogback Ski Area went out of business, the T-bars were removed from the ski lift cables and stored in various places. Now that the ski area is part of the Hogback Mountain Conservation Area, organizers have decided to try to preserve these artifacts from the early days of skiing in New England.
There will be a small, wheeled vehicle to help transport the T-bars out of the woods. A Hogback supporter has offered secure storage space in the second story of his barn.
Volunteers can offer a hand and enjoy a look into Hogback’s skiing past. Don’t know where the Grant Road entrance is? From Route 9, about a mile east of the gift shop at Hogback Mountain, turn south onto Butterfield Road. Grant Road will be the second road on the right, about a mile south of Route 9.
