Rockingham, Vermont area residents will be without lift served skiing this season, as the town's rope tow remains inoperable.
Word of the issues first emerged in December, when Rockingham Recreation Department announced opening day could be delayed due to a tree falling on the rope tow and power lines "last year." In a Facebook post today, the department reported "skiers can climb the hill and ski down."
According to the Brattleboro Reformer, the lift will not open this season, as the new rope has yet to be spliced and other needed repairs have not been made.
Located on the southwestern side of the village of Bellows Falls, the Bellows Fall Ski Tow has operated on and off for nearly 70 years. The 200 vertical foot natural snow slope has night skiing lights.
