News 8 Archives: Building Bristol Mountain Ski Resort

News

Check out Bristol Mountain before it was a ski resort! In August 1964, they had just finished bulldozing trees to make room for twin chair lifts. Crews were also grading the slopes and trails and getting ready to seed them as well. Our News 8 photographer rode along as the bombardier machine went down the intermediate slope in slow gear. The owners had not yet built the lodge at the bottom. Bristol Mountain opened to skiing in December that year.
