Who We Are
Originally established in the late 1960’s as a vacation destination, its developers picked this location due to its access to the Dutch Hill Ski Area located directly across the road. The Dutch Hill Ski Area was one of the first ski areas to open in New England and began operations in 1944. It was a popular mid-size ski area for families until its closure in 1985. In 1999 the Dutch Hill Ski Area became part of the Green Mountain National Forest.
In 2016, Dutch Hill Alliance of Skiers and Hikers (“DHASH”) began a revitalization effort for the Dutch Hill Ski Area to create and maintain non-commercial skiing options. Alpenwald Village remains a private community with approximately eighty families owning a residence. The community has a combination of permanent residential homes and vacation properties.
Alpenwald Village is located approximately 20 miles south of Mt. Snow and 30 miles north of Jiminey Peak Mountain Resort. Bennington, Vermont, North Adams, Massachusetts and the Appalachian Trail are all within a short 30 minute drive.
