A Stoddard Family Reunion at Pine Top

Pine Top Hosts Stoddard Reunion Jim and Betsy Stoddard are on the left. Don and Barbara Stoddard are in the middle and that's Vernon's beloved Town Historian, Barbara Moseley on the bottom right.
Pine Top, the lost ski area that's now home to our Vermont furniture showroom, holds many memories for families that skied and stayed here during the 1940s, 50s and 60s. We've been corresponding with the Stoddard family for a couple years now. Don and his brothers Jim and Sandy have shared many of their happy memories with us and we've been hoping one day they would drop by for a visit.

This week they did! I was able to catch up with Barbara Moseley, Vernon's Town Historian and invite her to join us. Barbara worked at Pine Top when she was going to college. She remembered the Stoddards fondly and was excited to get together and reminisce with them.
Map of Pine Top, created by Barbara Moseley Here's the Pine Top map Barbara created. This photo was taken earlier when Sigrid and Bill Wares of Moorestown, New Jersey stopped by to share their Pine Top memories.
We had a wonderful time chatting over apple cider and donuts & strolling along between Toby slope and Pelley Run. Barbara brought over copies of the Pine Top map she recently created (from memory) and the Stoddards each took one home to enjoy.
If you have your own memories of Pine Top, stop by Vermont Woods Studios anytime and take a trip down memory lane. It's good for the soul.
