^ Cool find! Ah and the days we could all dial just the last four digits of our phone numbers to reach anyone locally. ^_^

Here is a link to a still small independent telephone company in the Mad River valley of Vermont (where Sugarbush, Glen Ellen, and Mad River Glen grew up when I was growing up)

My uncle, Bob Henry, is in a couple of the later photos. He was a lineman and installer for the company most of his adult life.

At the time I was born, there was a single party line up the North Fayston valley where my father had been raised and where his parents still farmed. Phone rings were coded by the central operator (ours was one long, two short), but most of the valley picked up every call and listened in. To call out, you turned the crank on the wall box which alerted the operator and then asked for a connection.

I'm guessing from reading this more carefully and reading other sources that the second "Doppelmayr T bar" listed above was actually a Poma, and may have still been fictional in 60-61.

I didn't get to June the first time until Jan or Feb of 71, so I missed all those early lift layouts.
