Montpelier Recreation Department
Before 1969-1975, 1976-Around 1982
Thanks to F. Costello,
we were first alerted of this area that was operated by the city of Montpelier.
Here's what he has to say:
"Montpelier Rope Tow, operated by Rec. Dept. behind Vermont College in in late 70's, cost $ 0.25".
Vermont College is also defunct-it's now part of Norwich University in Northfield, VT.
VT Tramway reports indicate the Vermont College area was open before 1969, and operated until 1975. The area then closed during the 1975-1976 season. Late in 1976, the area reopened, this time run by the Montpelier Recreation Department. The last listing was from 1982, so it probably closed around then.
According to N. Phillips, the area was also called Sabin Pastures.
