America's newest ski area

post #1 of 4

How awesome is this? New York City may partner with Sugarbush to open a ski slope in Queens, with snowmaking and free lessons for kids on the weekends, and sledding during the week!


Maybe this could be the start of a new urban ski trend! I'd love to be able to get some turns in my neck of the woods near Van Cortlandt Park, where apparently there used to be a rope tow many years ago.

Interesting. Smart move for Sugarbush. Offer some deals and direct more NYC traffic up its way.

They make snow for sledding in Atlanta.  Certainly will be easier in NYC.

Hey watch it.  Not only was there skiing in Van Cortlandt Park in the sixties, but I was there, at least twice.  Its a pretty hilly spot.  


There was also skiing in Bethpage State Park in Nassau County--where I never went--and Bald Hill in Suffolk County.  Bald Hill might of actually had a chair lift, I can't imagine why I'm not clear on this memory.   Some people say that Bald Hill is the highest point on Long Island, but I never really researched the point to confirm.  


As for Astoria, it is a place distinctly absent of hills, but what the heck....Is there anything wrong with a seven foot vertical?
