Before 1966 ~ approx 1973
According to the Vermont Tramway inspections, Sterling School ran a 1200' rope tow from before 1969 to around 1973. The school is now likely called Sterling College.
John Dodge remembers this area:I remember it well having gone to Sterling between 1966-68 when it was a prep school in . (it's now a college focusing on conservation etc.). Looking at Googlemaps, my best guess is that it was in Albany, one town north of . We'd get off the Sterling bus and ski on winter afternoons after classes for an hour or two until it got dark. It was down a dirt road like most everything in northern Vermont. From the road, we'd cross flat expanse w small conifers and ski down the hill w moderate vertical...maybe of vertical. The rope was operated by a Sterling maintenance man whose name escapes me, but he had a Skidoo - a big deal back them.
If you remember this ski area, just let us know.
