Harrington Hill is another one of Vermont’s small local ski hills that provides the community with a place to come together, teach their kids to ski, and create great winter memories.
This is a natural snow hill with no snowmaking that rises approx 160 – 165 feet above the surrounding field. You’ll find Harrington Hill on route 132 in South Strafford, VT, approx. 1 hour to the northeast of Killington. It is currently run by the local Lion’s Club volunteers and skiing here is free for everyone!

The lift posts are made from old telephone poles and every time that the rope tow opens, one of the volunteers has to hang the rope onto its pulleys. Read a great article from 2013 by Kate Spencer here about how Harrington Hill is run by the volunteers.
