History & Mission
In 1934 Bunny Bertram built the Nation’s first rope tow on Gilbert Hill. He and his friends used this rope tow to explore the surrounding hills, including Hill Number 6. Bertram joked that to ski that hill would be suicide and two years later he opened Suicide 6. Since that time, Woodstock Ski Runners has taken advantage of the steep terrain, family environment and close location to make its mark in Vermont ski racing.
