NE Folklore....

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
All of this mention of classic Northeastern ski areas has had me surfing the web to look for any info on smaller areas I've skied in the past. Places like Taconic Trails, Ma., Milton Snow Bowl, NJ, Snow Valley, VT.

Anyway... In looking for info on the recently mentioned Hickory Hill in NY, I came across a great website.

This may be old news for some of you cyber skiers.....But If you haven't seen it yet, check it out! I think it's well worth a look if you're interested in the smaller areas, or just skiing history in general....

Cool stuff..

Up until a few months ago, the Ski Hickory photo gallery was three times larger, with some nice shots of the trails. I think the NELSAP guy removed some of the pics for whatever reason. I've already got a Hickory/Gore weekend tagged for January (with a pair of 1974 Rossignol Stratix rock skis at the ready in case H is low on snow).

Here's their goofy website:

Yes the New England Lost Ski Resorts is a favorite of mine. There are also some other interesting links such as old lift tickets,vertical drop of resorts,ski area maps of old and new,ski laws ect. You can find all of these at http://www.kokotele.com/linkspage.htm

Thanks for the links!

I've been wondering what I was gonna do with my stockpile of older skis........ I'm getting a sensethat nobody at Hickory would look twice if I showed up with new MRR's mounted on bright orange Spalding Siderals.....
Looking like a Hickory/Plattekill weekend is in the cards this year....
