The cover shows the summit nature trail, an interpretive walk now known as Trail J, which loops around the peak from the top of the Ole K Chair...
I have always wondered what the random numbers mean which have lined the trail for as long as I can remember. Now we know! Next time I go up, I will have to look for the Nibbled Branches marked by the #5...On another note, I wonder how nasty the trail looked littered in polaroid film backing :)
Check out this great map of the Killington Ski Area from 1974...note the original K Chair and 3-Stage Gondola...and the absence of Bear Mountain, Sunrise, the South Ridge & Canyon Areas.
and just think...all this cool mountain air - including great fishing in the 7 acre Snowshed Pond - could have been yours for only $8 a night, per person double occupancy. Ten Dollars if you want a fireplace and kitchenette!!
See you on the Mountain,
