Another thread I started has had some posts about where we all first went skiing and if those places are still around. There have often been comments here about the value of the local, small hills being where many first got a taste of the sport. I thought it would be fun to see how many posters here learned at larger places or small hills.
So here goes. My first-ever day was in Dec. 1992 at Wisp, Maryland. It's actually pretty big by mid-Atlantic standards, with 700 vertical feet, although it wasn't exactly "local" as it was about a three hour drive from where I was living in Washington DC.
