The area was started in the 1960s as a private ski area and opened with six trails, a double and a T-bar. It later added a second chair. In the late 1970s, the ski area ran into financial troubles and shut down after the 1980-81 season.
Private investors bought the place and reopened it as Bear Creek for the 1998-99 season as a private club. And then another group bought it in 2010, renaming it Plymouth Notch, reports vtskiandride. This season, lifts have not been running.
There’s plenty of room for future development with a master plan for a 66-unit build-out.
