Comments CommentsWhat fun being accepted to visit this historic area!! The road leading up to the ski area is one way incoming only until 2:30pm, and then it reverts to one way outgoing traffic only. After our morning at Catamount, we arrived just before 1:00! We were happy to be “stuck” through the afternoon! Everyone we encountered was kind and patient, happy to explain the history, and just out for a good day.

Loading onto this rope tow system was a big learning curve for me! I had never used the rope tow gripping mechanism to help get a firmer grip to go up those steeps! They were originally used locally at Bousquet as well, but have since been cast aside in order to stay ahead of legal woes. (The fourth image down is where the mechanism is shown, and it’s invention is explained! ( Mt Greylock Ski Area is one of, if not the last to be grandfathered to continue to use these rope tow grippers!

To choose a favorite is hard!! The overnight snowfall brought a couple more inches to the area (only open Saturdays and Sundays, natural snow permitting). We had packed our rock skis for this trip, so everything and anything skied so fun! The East and West slopes were fun to let loose on, East being a bit wider and lower angled...West feeling more trail like and a steeper angle. Broken Pillow, Blister (both branches) and Twistaroo were top favorites. Crest and Whippenpoof were also fun highlights. We also managed to find evidence of the old rope tow line coming down between Blister and Whippenpoof!
