    For $15 I'd probably check it out if I was in the area, but I've already committed to Sunapee next weekend.

  • Hey that's great news, thanks for posting

    Well the tows are there so it's probably the expense of lift attendants and grooming the lower bowl. When I was there 95% of the clientele were tubing.
    With what would be lift served right now it is a great novice area in terms of vertical and open empty areas.
    Ok I'm not saying I would drive from NYC to learn to ski, but if I lived anywhere near I'd go there before the big hills and save some big $$.

  • My wife grew up in Waterville and learned to ski at Eaton.  Good story here.  Her brother owed their parents $100.  My wife wanted "new" skis for Christmas. Her parents forgave her brother's $100 debt but took his skis and regifted them to my wife.  Plus a trip to the Colby College ski swap for some boots and she was in business.  circa 1980.  Her dad still lives in the same house on Drummond Ave.  She had never been to Sugarloaf until we met in college. It was too far of a drive to Sugarloaf from Waterville.  I would love to ski at Eaton as I never have.  But it is too far a drive from the So Shore of MA to Eaton.  I wish it had coincided with a trip to visit her dad. Good luck to Eaton.  
  • Great story. Yes a long drive from down here. I wish I'd been there when the upper Mtn was lifted served.
