Lively Farm
Colrain, MA
1950's

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.
