Crotched Mountain has a thriving ski area - but with a twist...The original Crotched Mountain ski area bought Bobcat ski area next door, and operated all trails until 1989, when expenses of new condo development forced the closure of the ski area. Crotched Mountain ski area reopened, but only the Bobcat side...so, the several of the old disused ski trails wind up the mountain, and one is actually passable as a 4x4 trail to a scenic overlook facing west. The old trails and ski lifts are visible in the satellite view.
