The Northeast used to be littered with mom-and-pop-size ski areas, many of which have been consolidated into huge resorts, while others fell to development or just passed out of existence. This site serves as a repository for information
, images, and reminiscinces
. Links to other region's lost ski area sites, too.
Wish they'd do something about that design, and maybe work with Google Maps/Earth, but the idea's a nice one. I didn't even grow up skiing, but you can't understand New England's 20th-century history without looking at this important tourist industry and local pastime.
