Saskadena Six is new name of ski resort once called Suicide Six

(CNN) — A popular Vermont ski resort originally known as Suicide Six has changed its name to Saskadena Six, according to the resort.

The ski area, located in the town of South Pomfret, announced plans in late June to change its “insensitive” name in the weeks to come.

“Our resort team embraces the increasing awareness surrounding mental health and shares the growing concerns about the insensitive nature of the historical name,” the resort said in a post on its website last month. “The feelings that the word ‘suicide’ evokes can have a significant impact on many in our community.”
