Magic Mountain image
Londonderry, VT
(range: 8 miles)
People often ask, what makes Magic so different? It all starts with the mountain itself. When Hans Thorner was searching Vermont to start a ski area in the late 1950s, he found Glebe Mountain. It’s ridge lines and steep topography reminded him of his native Swiss Alps. The trails he cut for Magic are naturally narrow and twisting and descend 1,500 heart-pumping vertical feet to our two Summit lifts—true vertical skiing. Combined with tree-skiing from boundary-to-boundary, Magic’s terrain is what separates this ski area from all others in southern Vermont and the East Coast—virtually unchanged since the 1960s. (This excerpt taken from the Magic Mountain website)
Eureka Schoolhouse stands as the oldest one-room schoolhouse in Vermont, and one of the few surviving 18th-century public buildings in the state. Reconstructed in its current location in 1968, Eureka Schoolhouse was built about 1790 to serve Springfield’s first village settlement. Tradition holds that this building was erected because of the efforts of four families to have a local school. It was constructed by William Bettergneau, an early inhabitant of Springfield supporting himself as a beaver trapper. (This excerpt taken from the Eureka Schoolhouse website)
