     History
    Mt Tom ski area operated for many years and provided decent lift serviced alpine skiing for the Springfield MA. area. The ski area was very popular, but closed unexpectedly in the late 90's when the owner decided the mountain could provide better use as a strip mine than a recreational area. The ski area is just north of Mountain Park.
