Fifty years after Mickey and Ginny started Cochran Ski Area, four of their grandchildren embarked on another Green Mountain tradition - bottling pure maple syrup.
In the summer of 2010 the four cousins constructed a timber frame sugarhouse (at right) a snowballs throw away from the slopes. Timbers for the building were milled on site from nearby trees. By August, the cousins had moved on to installing the tubing that would bring sap from the trees to tanks at the sugarhouse. Installation of the tubing continued through the first sugaring season of 2011 to tap over 5,000 trees. The cousins were able to expand to the full potential of the land to 22,000 taps after 2012.
