A History of King Ridge, the Ski Area.

King Ridge opened in 1961 with a T-bar and a rope tow on about a 500 foot drop. It built its reputation on family and affordable skiing. All of the trail names had something to do with Alice in Wonderland. King Ridge was an upside-down mountain where facilities and parking were at the summit, so your family begins and ends their day on top!

How Affordable is Solar? More than you would think and Hydronic Solar has the best ROI of all
In the late 1960's a double chairlift was installed to provide novice skiers with a decent vertical. But in the early 1970's King Ridge built a triple chair on the King Ridge hill. This triple was one of the first ones built in all of New England.

In 1986 the area added a new triple to replace an aging T-bar, and a new "Family Center" which will be the center of this solar project.
