Recent NewEnglandSkiIndustry.com News:
Located near the American birthplace of the ski rope tow, Mt. Tom likely opened circa 1951-52. With wide, novice slopes, the area attracted families and beginners alike.

Circa 1961, Laurance Rockefeller took over Mt. Tom and nearby Suicide Six, marketing the former for novices and the latter for experts under his RockResorts, Inc. enterprise. A Poma lift was installed for the 1960-61 season, as well as a Larchmont snowmaking system.

The 1961-62 season featured the addition of a novice Poma lift, as well as expanded snowmaking. By the end of the decade, the system covered some 60 acres. While Mt. Tom would not see anymore new lifts in its future, a new trail was cut for the 1965-66 season.

Rockefeller acquired the Woodstock Inn in 1967, which he rebuilt for the 1969-70 season. A new nordic touring center debuted in 1970.


A significant sum was invested in Suicide Six in the late 1970s, expanding its novice terrain and thus making it a more balanced area. As a result, Mt. Tom was deemed redundant and thus closed circa 1978.
