About the Ski Resort

Skiing history was made in Woodstock in 1934 when local residents rigged up a Model T Ford engine at the base of Gilbert's Hill to power America's first ski tow. Two years later, Bunny Bertram opened a commercial ski area just north of Gilbert's Hill which soon became known as Suicide Six.

Today, the area offers 23 trails, including a new double black diamond glade trail and a snowboarding halfpipe. It transports its skiers with two chair lifts and a J-bar. The first substantial snowfall in mid-December marks the opening of Suicide Six, and throughout the season skiing and riding are augmented by Mother Nature, snow guns, and superior grooming until closing in mid-March.

Suicide Six offers skiing the way it used to be - intimate, uncrowded, and unhurried.
