Help Save the Historic Hogback T-bars


Date & Time: 
Oct 1 2017 - 9:00am - 12:00pm

When the Hogback Ski Area went out of business in the mid-1980's, the wooden T-bars and the metal spring-loaded retractors were removed from the ski lift cable. The T-bars were stored in various places on the mountain, in no-longer used buildings. We're going to be moving them to a more protected location in town, to space in a barn that has been offered for us to use. We'll need some people to use socket wrenches to remove the T's from the retractors. Other people can help carry the components out to the small vehicle we'll bring in for hauling. The heartiest among us will be drafted to help carry the items up to the second story in the storage barn.

Meet at the Grant Road entrance to the Hogback Mountain Conservation Area. Don't know where that is? From Route 9 about ½ mile east of Hogback, turn south onto Butterfield Road. Take the second right, which is Grant Road. The entrance to the conservation area will be on the left in about a mile, opposite a large open field. You can find a map on our web site: hogbackvt.org.
