DCSki Reader Jonathan F. believes there might be a Lost Ski Area near Deep Creek Lake, Maryland (other than Wisp, which continues to run today). He writes:
“This is going to be really really vague but I believe there is a lost ski area, very close to Deep Creek Lake. My friend’s parents had a house there and we used to go there in the late 80’s. It was walking distance to the lake and next to their house were two cuts of trees. One was a straight line from top to bottom. The second was a meandering slope that started at the top of the first cut and eventually met back at the bottom.
This leads me to believe the first cut was some type of lift and the second cut was the slope.”
