    I told you I was bad at these. I never recall giant truck tires anywhere. How about Lyndon?


    Correct! Because they don't have any snowmaking there was no snow left on the trails. Here are a few more photos:

    So that's the abandoned rope tow in your pic Sam? Any pics of the tbar from Stowe?image

    Can't tell from Betsy's pic above, is that a t bar or rope tow, looks like a tbar in Sams pics.
    What year did LOC get it from Stowe? What brand?

    I'm not sure about the brand, it's different than anything I've seen. The first picture was of the rope tow and two others showed the T-bar.

    Not by your attitude but how do you keep doing those double quote reposts? You know you can edit those out, right?
    Anyway, it looks like the abandoned rope tow is just to the left of the Tbar and they are used as light towers now. The existing rope is way, way over to the left. You can see the top terminal in NES13s middle pic in the 3 he posted together above

    Dude that's a lot of apologies. Not necessary..it's all good. It was just that some of these posts are getting hard to read imho with all the quotes esp when they include the pics all over again. And again. Just my opinion.

    Wow, nice challenge.  I should have seen the red flags before wrongly confirming northeast slopes.

    I found my trip report. It stinks.  I know I had written a better one somewhere.... Epicski users take heed.

    You guys are good! Bad pictures and all. Rope tow to
    left and T-bar on right. T-bar gets a little dark and lonely in the middle at
    night.

    There was still some powder left on top and sides. Expected a few more people
    there considering how warm for up there it was, like 25F. It's fairly steep for
    a small hill. Skied some nice powder/crud down from the face as the kids stick
    to the rope tow which only goes up 1/3 of the way."

    Today's Recollections: I had stopped at Lyndon a couple times before apres skiing Burke but it had not been open. I recall passing a tank at a VFW or something like that, more than once on the way there from Burke. This was a Dad and Lad trip. We skied some pretty good snow at Burke for early January then went night skiing at Lyndon. We had dinner at a family style restaurant in Lyndonville (I can't recall the name) that always has plenty of sleds parked outside. There were only a few people skiing the T. Skier's left was unlit so I missed that except near the bottom. My son had a great time helping some other kids build some features and riding the rope. About halfway up the T-bar there were no lites except for one at the top & no moon. This was perhaps one reason the kids stuck to the lower rope. My night time X-C experience paid off here. I did record that it cost a whopping $12 bucks for me. The next day we skied Kanc & Loon.

    Doesn't stink to me dude, actually a very good memorable time spent with your son.

    Has your son boarded with you and Mrs ski_it lately?

    Don't know how you resurrect these oldies but keep 'me coming, enjoyable, thanks

    Yep a couple times and he went with his sisters a couple other times. We gave him one of those Peak Pass Ski four different areas get one free for Christmas only available at the Ski Show. $150. For his freebie they said his first trip at Attitash wasn't in the computer. But Mt S customer service came through and very nicely honored it.
