A Snippet of Powder Ridge History

History of Powder Ridge | Marquee Events | Connecticut

We have a little piece of history for you today — did you know that in the early 70s, Powder Ridge had installed and operated the only four-person chair lift in New England? Pretty big deal back then! It’s since been changed to a triple, but was groundbreaking at the time. We love the history and nostalgia of our venue and feel that it adds something special to all of the events we host here.
