The Vermont Tech Rope Tow is an old fashioned rope tow powered by an electric engine. Skiers and Boarders grab the rope and are pulled to the top. 

Students in the Construction Management program built us a new warming hut in 2014, thanks to the guidance of Vermont Tech professor Joe Witt.

The rope tow is located at the bottom of Water Street next to the VTC Farm. Water Street is the road that goes down-hill across from the white church on the south west corner of campus.
