"The Comeback Trail"
Vermont Life
Autumn 2016

Ascutney’s life as a resort, in the conventional sense, appears to be over. The condominiums remain, of course, as does the Holiday Inn Club Vacation hotel at the base area. But lifts will never deposit skiers at the high point of the old ski area, a few hundred vertical feet below the summit, and people from Boston and New York won’t cram the base lodge at lunchtime on winter Saturdays. Most of the human traffic on the property will be human-powered — people pedaling bicycles or using skins and skis to ascend this craggy monadnock of a mountain.
