The Vermont Tech Rope Tow isan old fashioned rope tow powered by an electric engine. Skiers and Boarders grab the rope and are pulled to the top. Thanks to our Ski & Ride Club, new rails have been installed for the upcoming season.
Sudents in the Construction Practice & Management program have built us a new warming hut, thanks to 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.
