Stratton is among the most storied ski resorts in America, in a state that has been at the forefront of American skiing from the very beginning. The region retains the cozy feel of New England tradition spiced with the best that modern life has to offer.

The first rope tow in the United States, powered by a Model T engine, hauled skiers up Clinton Gilbert's hilly pasture in Woodstock in 1934. "This ingenious contraption launched a new era in winter sports," states the historic marker at the spot.
