    I visited last winter and the rope tow is still operational. I believe they run it once a year on the Saturday of President’s Day weekend for a competition, and maybe run it the Wednesday before.

    “We will be running the BIG TOW tomorrow between 2:00 and 3:00 for practice and course inspection before this Saturday’s “Great Up-N-Downhill Race”.So bring you leather mitts and perfect your high speed detachable rope tow riding etiquette and sign for the races.”

    I think it’s supposed to be funny- since you attach and detach with your leather mitts.🤪

      It’s a good thing they’re replacing the rope and not the whole tow itself. I learned about how wicked it was from Glen Plake’s instagram video of it.
