    Crotched E?

    That's gotta be the summit bullwheel of the Crotched Hall t-bar!

    Likewise I agree. I think it's the angle of the deflection of the hall rope. It seems to be a pretty unique one.

    Ok wise guys, the angle looks fine on my phone! Yes, I believe this is the lower T-bar at the original Crotched Mtn.

    You can see a this and a few old lifelines & trails. The roads are all marked private now. There are probably more condo units here than at the New Crotched. Couldn't see much of anything that I remember from the old area. Yardsales's possibly confusion over the old and new Crotched raises a question for me. I'll ask the judges & jury:
    Does skiing the now NELSAP Old Crotched East back when it was a lift served area, count as another ski area on my lifetime list? So many gray areas.....

    I vote yes. Count it. The old Crotched was a different area with mostly narrower, twisting trails, as I remember them. It also had an upper and lower mountain with the base lodge separating them. The new area is built mostly on Bobcat/Onset (Joshua will correct me on this if more of the old Crotched is involved than  I remember) and, with wide,well-covered cruisers, is more fun, IMO. So add one more to your list, or maybe even two more if you skied Onset and rode that bubble chairlift.
