The Bellows Falls Ski Tow is currently operated by the Town of Rockingham Recreation Department. It is usually referred to as the Bellows Falls ski tow or Bellows Falls rope tow but the hill has not had an official name for many years.

This ski hill is still planned to be open for the ’21 – ’22 ski season when there is enough snow. You can find the Bellows Falls rope tow right outside of the Rockingham Recreation Center, next to the baseball field and tennis courts. It even has one thing that you won’t find at the larger ski resorts… night skiing! Many of the smaller ski hills in Vermont have night skiing but the largest resort with lights is Bolton Valley.

Historic Bellows Falls, Vermont

Miss Bellows Falls Diner

The Bellows Falls Downtown Historic District was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982 and other areas of the village have followed, including the iconic Miss Bellows Falls Diner on Rockingham Street.

Bellows Falls is a transportation hub for the state with Amtrak and Greyhound both operating through the area. The village has been known for its location around the Connecticut River for almost 200 years now. A canal was required to enable shipping up and down the river before the railroads were built. Once the railroads arrived, the canal was used to power a local mill. Now this area is part of the local historic district.

Rockingham Road and Canal Street make up much of the downtown area. Visit the restored opera house, downtown shops and restaurants, or the Canal Street Art Gallery while you are here. The Green Mountain Railroad and Amtrak stations are just across the Bellows Falls Canal and within walking distance of downtown. The ski hill and rope tow are less than 1 mile away from there.
