One of the most fascinating parts of Vermont’s skiing history is what places have been lost along the way. ABC Local 22 / Local 44 anchor Mike Hoey and Vermont Historical Society Executive Director Steve Perkins traveled to the Vermont Ski & Snowboard Museum in Stowe to learn more about the lost ski areas in Vermont. While there, they spoke with Brian Linder, who is a part of Mt. Mansfield’s Ski Patrol.
They discuss what some of the abandoned ski areas are, including one visible on I-89, and two of them that are hidden in the middle of college campuses. The video also shows off a map of the lost ski areas, which was made by Jeremy Davis of the New England Lost Ski Areas Project (NELSAP).
If you want to learn more about lost ski areas in Vermont, head over to NELSAP or visit the Vermont Ski & Snowboard Museum in Stowe.
