For a few weeks they have been landscaping to the left side of the entrance to Mt. Tom. As I drove by today on my way to work they are now working on the right side. So now the Mt. Tom sign is fully visible as the trees hiding it were removed and there appears there are tubes for lighting sticking out of the ground under the sign. It almost looks as if the sign was painted also. It has me wondering if they repainted the sign for the Boys and Girls club or if the sign is going to be replaced with one for the Mountain Park Amphitheater.

I think he's referring to the one on Massachusetts.

The one in Vermont is just outside of Woodstock...start heading toward Suicide Six and keep your eyes out on the left for the open slopes and white house.

NJskiBabe, the old Mt. Tom is still quite visible. It is in Woodstock, on the Marsh,Billings, Rockefeller property...actually the property is on Mt. Tom. If you take Route 12N, you will drive through Woodstock and pass between the Mansion on your left, and the Farm on your right. Route 12N will bend around a corner to the left. Shortly after that (about 1/4 mile), on the left, you will see a white house which houses The Purple Crayon art studio for kids. That was the base lodge for Mt. Tom. The ski hill is behind the house. Directly across the street from the Purple Crayon is a parking lot which is the home of the Woodstock Saturday Morning Farmer's Market. If you get to the fork in the road (Left will continue route 12N**, Right will take you to Suicide Six), you have gone too far.

This is not the Mt. Tom that mt. tom was discussing.

** (added later)If you DO get to that fork in the road, fret not...you can continue another 1/2 mile up 12N where you can see-on the right - famed "Gilbert's Hill", the site of the first tow in the country.

The access road is open?

Was there in April. Hiked in from rt 141 but coming over the mountain. Hiked out the access road which was closed from by the interstate. was curious about the other mt tom ski area but wasn't able to find that one.

Yeah it is open but there is no sign on the access road at the intersection for it. I will try and snap a photo if I can on my way to work!

I finally snapped a photo of the sign! This shows the sign lit up at night! I will get a photo of it during the day with the landscaping around it soon!
