King Ridge in New London, New Hampshire is one of the region’s most famous abandoned ski areas.

The Alice In Wonderland themed ski area became known as one of the most family-friendly mountains in New England. Warm winters and mounting debt ultimately led to its demise, closing for good after the 1994-95 season. Today, much of the mountain is protected as conservation land, so you can still do some hiking and backcountry skiing there.

The Ice House Museum in New London hosted an event that celebrated the history of the King Ridge Ski Area. The event, which was posted online by YCN, saw many former employees of King Ridge discuss their memories at the ski area, which included the prior ski hill that existed in New London, how King Ridge got its name, the first years at the ski area before grooming, and the 1980s and 1990s.

It’s worth a watch if you want to learn more about one of New England’s most famous abandoned ski areas.
