This Group Wants to Preserve the Site of Nation's First Ski Tow

The Trust for Public Lands and the Vermont Land Trust are joining forces to purchase a 110-acre Woodstock, Vermont, property that once was the site of the nation's first ski tow. The 600-foot vertical tow was built in 1934 for $500 and powered by a Ford Model T, according to the Vermont Standard. The property is now valued at $1.4 million and could serve plenty of recreational purposes along with standing as a piece of ski history.
