Saskadena Six is one of the oldest ski areas in the country, just down the road from Woodstock VT, the site of the first rope tow in the US.

In 1936, Saskadena Six opened to the public. A rope tow was installed — by Warren Bertram, a former Dartmouth ski instructor — on Hill No. 6. According to legend, “Bunny” Bertram thought Hill No. 6 was a good spot for a ski hill, yet at the same time he questioned the wisdom of straight lining the front face.

Saskadena Six is located on 247 Stage Road South Pomfret, VT.

Saskadena Six is an Indy Pass ski area.
