Northeast Slopes has been keeping skiing real since 1936. There is no pretension, just seriously fun terrain, good food and lots of smiles.

History

Northeast Slopes is a historic landmark that exemplifies the true spirit of rural Vermont. Established in 1936, Northeast Slopes takes pride in being the oldest continuously operating ski tow in the United States and probably North America.

Before the days of motorized grooming equipment, its hillsides were smoothed for skiing by a harrow pulled by a pair of Belgian workhorses. While modern grooming has now replaced the horses, the mechanics of the hill’s two rope tows are the same, each using the engine of a car to send skiers up the slope. One more recent change was the addition of a new T-bar in 2009. This continues further up the hill to the summit, making it easier to access additional ski-able terrain (36 acres total) and take in a spectacular view of Mt Moosilauke.

The small lodge at the hill’s base where skiers can eat and warm up is still part of the original warm-up hut, updated in 1972. It serves local, grass fed burgers and some of the best whoopie pies ever.
