Thanks to Art Hamilton, we now know of this area that operated in Colrain during the 1950's. Here are his details and pictures.
|There was a ski area
was at the Lively Farm in Colrain, MA. There is a JPEG
of the lift tickets, a photo from around 1950 and todayís topo.
A group of my fatherís old ski friends would go
to the Lively Farm every Columbus Day for a
picnic, and we would climb the old ski tow hill which still
had the support poles for the old rope tow standing in the 1960ís
when I went there as a kid. I believe the poles
were by then supporting 300 ohm twin line
VHF TV antenna wire up the hill to a TV antenna far above
the farmhouse in the valley below. I believe the Lively family still
owns the farm, they were very nice people.
Here is a picture of some tickets for the area, as well as one from Bousquet.
