April 27, 2018

In an article written by Jack Quinn the local correspondent out of South Paris, went on, "In a few days Maine's only chair lift - the third longest in New England - wil be in full operation at the Pleasant Mountain development overlooking Moose Pond. Construction of the 4,300 foot lift to the top of the north peak is progressing rapidly."

As the only ski area in the state offering a T-bar and a chair lift, Pleasant Mountain quickly became a very busy place.
