According to the brochure Joshua contributed, Groton had a Poma lift and 6 rope tows serving 10 slopes.

Wow, all those tows ... that's sure a throwback to the mid-1960s and before.

The poma was a fixed grip poma aka "platter pull". Look at all the learn to ski options... truely a real feeder hill. Notice these is a couple hours between day and night skiing. That was common back when I was a kid. Not sure why places closed between day and night sessions. Any ideas why?

I would assume it was for some quick grooming or trail maintenance.

Most of these smaller hills were family-run with only a few employees if any. They closed at 4:30 and reopened at 7 so their staff could go home and eat dinner.
