I only have 6 hours' worth of real work today, so I spent some time on this.

I got 2815 feet for the top of Timber Ridge - not to quarrel with Jmaul, but I already did it, so there it is. Almost as high as the top of Magic.

New Hampshire Lost: from Jeremy's article on NELSAP.org, the Cog RR ski service went as high as the water tower. That's about El. 3770. I think that's what we should be using for Mt. Washington if we're using it at all. For second place I have a surprise: not Mittersill! Various old listings on NELSAP would give the top of Mittersill as 3400 or 3500, but they called the base elevation 2000 and as usual, exaggerated the vertical. From the topo and Google Earth, the top of the old chairlift is at El. 3140. That's trumped by the un-nelsapped Mt. Moosilauke ski area of Dartmouth, according to info provided by Billski:
Page title: Old thread by Billski
The rope tow went up to a peak lableled 3157 in the topo. We can't tell if the tow actually went to the peak, but the old trail map claimed the summit was El. 3200.

Connecticut: just for the record, the top of the Mohawk ski area can't be any higher than El. 1497, which is on the topo. The highest lost area is hard to figure, since a lot of the NELSAP listings don't have locations. I'm guessing this is the location for Indian Meadow in Winsted. Probably the slope below the road, so the top elevation would be 1150. Why don't we let that stand until someone can find a higher one?

From topo: Jiminy Peak 2380, Brodie 2600

Summary:
NH Lost, Mt. Washington Cog RR, El. 3770
NH Lost 2nd place, Mt. Moosilauke tow, El. 3157
Connecticut Active: Mohawk, El. 1497
Connecticut Lost, Indian Meadow, El. 1150 (tentative)

Well, I too have been looking at lost CT and I'm looking at Sharon Mountain - not to quarrel with mapnut........
HERE is a link to a past discussion I'm sure some will remember. It is tough since we still can't place the trail locations, but I'd guess the top at 1200 plus, which is conservative, as it very well could be close to 1400 if it went to the actual peak. TOPO

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.


The ski portion of the cog was pretty short. I don't recall how much vert it was, but it wasn't a lot. I think it might be Whittier

I have a hard time believing that the delta between the peak elevation and the top bullwheel at sugarloaf exceeds killington. It has been several years but i remember a defined summit cone at killington when accessing the k summit lodge from the long trail on the southern side.

It has been atleast a decade but i do not remember a summit cone when hiking sugarloaf from the AT. You definietly need to hike when accessing the backside from timberline but it is nothing compared to the k summit cone.

higest bullwheeel in new enlgand? timberline or k1?

I'm not sure if I was standing at the highpoint when I took this or if I had dropped down a few feet, but:
