This might have been done before but I didn't want to hijack the guy's thread looking for the six highest peaks in New England.

RI: NELSAP: Diamond Hill; operating Yawgoo Valley
VT: Mt Mansfield, but lifts don't go to the top so there mighgt be another answer
MA: NELSAP: Mt. Graylock; operating ??

The rest?

I think Killington Peak is the highest lift terminal in VT? Mt. Ellen at Sugarbush would be second.

Cannon in NH?

Off the top of my head, I believe the highest NELSAP in MA would probably be Brodie (no lift to the summit of Mt. Greylock), and perhaps the highest operating would be Jiminy Peak.

Cannon beats Wildcat by a few dozen feet in NH for open, and the Cog Rail might technically take the cake for NELSAP.

Just a minor point but wouldn't this number be smaller. The top lift elevation scenario would be similar to Killington (a lesser number).

Counting Mt. Washington is a bit of s stretch for NELSAP highest, don't you think? Never was infrastructure for skiing (such as a fixed lift). yes, you could ride the cog, but it didn't go that high for skiing in particular.

Highest NELSAP in VT: maybe Prospect?

The AMC recognizes the summit of Sugarloaf as 4,250', so the 4,237' isn't too far off (though if I recall, the quad doesn't go up quite as far as the former gondola).

Based on a 4250 ft summit, the top bullwheel location would create a 4184 ft elevation.

I edited your inputs into the last summary posting.

Re NH: Mt. Washington has always received a dispensation from the NELSAP/SJ community. To the extent that the cog rail has been used for skiing and there were from time-to-time portsble rope tows used up there, it does nominally count as a NELSAP area.

However, if you want to propose a "second place" for NH NELSAP, I'll happily add it to the list.

Actually, a long time ago, the cog actually ran to the top in the winter to provide shuttle service for skiers in Tucks. However, I believe it only operated for 1 or 2 seasons as it was quickly deemed that it was far too unsafe considering the difficulty of Tucks.

Just FYI, the Wildcat quad doesn't go up to 4,062' - it tops out probably at about 4,000'

Prospect is 2767', Haystack appears to be around 2900', but whether it is NELSAP or not depends on this season, I imagine?

Good. Anyone got numbers for
1. Timber Ridge, VT
2. CT
3. Other NH NELSAP (for those who don't like Mt. Washington at the top of that list.)

I believe Timber Ridge topped out around 2,830 or so, but I forget if that was the top of the double chairlift or the top of the never-built lift line. Again, too lazy to dig out the map
