Mount Tom Ski Area

Mount Tom Ski Area was a ski resort in Holyoke, Massachusetts, in the Mount Tom Range in the western part of Massachusetts about 10 miles north of Springfield. It opened in 1962 and closed in 1998. Since its closing, all chair-lifts and snow making equipment had been either sold off or scrapped. Now, a few stray snow cannons remain along the mountain, and snowmaking pipe sits on the side of the former trails to rust away. Mt Tom was located off Rt. 5 on the North side of Holyoke Massachusetts and was just up the road from Mountain Park, a local amusement park. Both Mountain Park and Mt. Tom were owned by the O'Connell Construction Company. It was rumored that Mt. Tom was created so that the Construction company could keep seasonal workers working during the winter and keep them available for the summer construction season. During 2016, the main lodge (the last building secured from vandals) was broken into and the security systems were destroyed. Vandalism inside the lodge and surrounding buildings increased. As of now, all buildings on the mountain are not use-able and would require a complete rebuild. A recent forest fire in late April 2014 burned roughly 27 acres of the ski area. None of the ski areas buildings caught fire. The fire mostly burned trees and loose brush that had grown in on the slopes. In late 2016, vandals and arsonists set fire to one of the smaller, old ski shacks, burning it to the ground. In 2017, a proposal from a local-area resident was brought to the Holyoke town boards attention to attempt to re-open the ski area. Many questions and concerns were raised, and that has hindered any further action. As of now, the proposal has been unsuccessful. In March of 2018, a fire emerged in the former rental

shop of the ski area, completely destroying it. No other buildings caught fire in the event.
