A Piece of BRC Club History

BENNINGTON - Here is an interesting piece of Bennington Rotary Club History
Jed Turner: "As a kid I remember skiing the Bennington Rotary rope tow at the Mount Anthony Country Club in Bennington, Vermont. It was located on the 9th hole. This was the closest place to ski if you lived in North Bennington with the exception of the private tow owned by the Campbell's near the entrance to Bennington College. I believe I was about 9 or 10 years old so that would make it circa 1960-1961
I talked to Mr. Resch, and he recalled that the Bennington Rotary Club set up a temporary rope tow at the Mt. Anthony Country Club in the year 1963. He said it was a very gentle slope and believes it only operated for that one year. He does not know if there are any remains of the ski tow left there.".
