Alpine Skiing

Alpine skiers have been thrilled about Ascutney’s varied terrain and friendly appeal for over 60 years.  Building on this tradition, Ascutney Outdoors offers a 1,800’ Doppelmayr T-bar that serves 8 trails, 26 acres of skiable terrain for all ability levels, a 450 foot vertical drop, and the longest run of 3100 feet.  Our lifts are adjacent to the Ascutney Outdoors Center, which is a wonderful gathering place to warm up and relax.

Our operations are dependent on volunteers and natural snow conditions and may change any time.  Please check ahead on the News section on our website Home Page or Facebook for the most up-to-date information on operations.

Thursday Night Classic – on Rope Tow, racers required to pre-register.  Suspended per State directive – Erika will provide updates.

If the T-bar cannot open, the Rope Tow may open to the public at no charge –  goodwill donations much appreciated.  In addition, depending upon snow cover, we may have to limit the T-bar to the first intermediate stop.

T-bar Lift Tickets

Supporter Passes will guarantee a T-bar ticket whenever we  operate.  Day Tickets will be available for sale too, however, we may need to limit purchases if the lines become too crowed to practice safe COVID procedures.

Everyone must obtain a physical ticket, including Supporter Pass holders and young children.  Tickets will be issued only in lower level of the AOC.
