Mt. Willard Ski Area location map Overview
Along with the Mt. Tom proposal, Crawford House owner George McAvoy also considered building a lift to the adjacent Mt. Willard. The plans were cancelled by the mid-1970s closing and subsequent fire of the lodging facility. The Appalachian Mountain Club Highland Center is now located near the proposed base area.

Quotes
" McAvoy went on to say that there was also a plan to place a lift "or some conveyance" to transport people to the summit of nearby Mount Willard, long one of the best and most rewarding short hikes in the region. "
Mike Dickerman, 2005
