Part of the now Wilbraham-Monson Academy, the original Wilbraham Academy operated a small ski area in Wibraham. The area first sported a 2 mile ski trail on Wilbraham Mountain. It started at an old cabin at a reservoir through the woods down to the campus below. A ski jump also existed. An old jalopy with a rope tow likely served the lower part of this trail.
