Exploration of Hogback Mountain

Rope tow return wheels

MARLBORO- The Hogback Ski Area closed in 1986, but there is still a lot of equipment on the mountain, some of it quite large and obvious, other bits small and hidden. On June 22, from 1:30 to 3:30, people will ramble around the former ski area, discover some equipment and pieces, and figure out what the parts were used for while getting a nice overview of the evolution of the ski industry and lift equipment. Finding some of the items will require bushwhacking off the beaten path, but those who want a more mellow meander can stick to the trail and later reconnect.  Expect a slow pace with some noticeable elevation gain and loss.  
The exploration will start at the field behind the white distillery building on the south side of Route 9, west of the gift shop.
