Mid 1960's-Around 1972
Not much is known about this lost area in Hinesburg. According to the VT Tramway Reports, the area had a 400' rope tow, and operated from sometime in the 1960's-around 1972.
According to J. Wilson at the Hinesburg Town Hall, the rope tow was run by a 1948 or 1949 car engine and was located on land owned by five families. The ski area was used by these families and their neighbors. The area is located on a private road off Mechanicville Road. This area is on private property, so please do not trespass.

D. Boulanger has a bit more info to add: The rope tow that existed in Hinesburg VT might well have been on a private road owned by Dave Wade, near the Mechanicsville section of town, not far from the cemetery.
