A huge percentage of the private boarding schools in Northern New England once operated small areas, and would fit into the NELSAP private school category. Many of these are currently listed on NELSAP.
Then there is the whole other topic of private secondary school ski academies, such as the Stratton School, Burke Academy, Killington School, and GMV (Green Mountain Valley?) School, which are associated with large, active resort mountains.
Norwich University and Williams College are also the sites of a college NELSAP areas. Dartmouth used to operate the Oak Hill area in town in Hanover. Middlebury had a ski area in town on Chipman hill, which was never lift served - it was the site of ski jumping for many years (the old hill can still be seen clearly, minus any hardware), and carnival races during WWII when they couldn't afford the gas to get up to the Snow Bowl.
Let's change the topic slightly to make it a minimum of a T-Bar to qualify for the list. That will eliminate Dublin and Cardigan from further consideration; as well as many of the one "professor" alluded to.
Windham College, Putney, Vt ran a rope tow on a hill behind the dorms in the late 60's, early 70's. We called it Freak Peak. The Spring Carnival we held featured a Gelande and Beer Slalom. I did both but my memory is alittle fuzzy....

I know you said T-bar, but I documented a rope tow area at Holy Cross a few years ago. Holy Cross could be added to NELSAP College areas. I had a post about this a few years ago and pictures are in my gallery.

That's correct. Holy Cross had a rope tow on the east side of campus. Couldn't have had more than 100 or so feet of vertical.
And if we're going to break the rope tow rule so soon, Nichols College in Dudley, Mass., used to set up a rope tow on a slope behind the old gym. It ran off an old automobile engine. It had a vertical of maybe 90 to 100 feet. That was when Nichols still was a junior college and before the new gym was built and the new football field and track were put in. It's a NELSAP area.
Are you sure? Any idea where it might have been? If it was on campus, the only place I could see it would be over by the "Mean Machine" (a big hill by the lake about 150 feet near the boat houses). I went to Brooks in the late 70s and there was never any mention of a ski hill. I also pulled out my Brooks @ 50 written in 1978 by the original headmaster for 45 years; and there isn't any mention of a ski hill.
ED: Looking at the NELSAP page (where I should have started) it sounded like there was something nearby. However when I was there we never went over there. Actually I never went on any school sponsored trips.
There's no waiting for friends on a powder day.
