DCSki reader Steven Berkoski remembers an area north of Rt. 78 in Pennsylvania around the Allentown area that was called either “Lost Dutchman” or “Flying Dutchman.” At this time DCSki does not know any details about this potential lost ski area.

“The comment by Peter G., below, is most accurate. The original slope of the club was at Eagle Point, PA which is really now considered part of Kutztown, PA. The following image from Google Earth with a USGS Topographical Map Overlay from 1956 shows the ski lift location. The Lat/Long coordinates are 40”32’50 N , 75”45’20 W Elevation 600 feet. The aerial photo view in Google Earth just barely shows the faint traces of the old trails.”
A comment from DCSki reader Rich K. in January, 2011 indicates that “the Flying Dutchman” may have been a proposed name (which was never used) for Big Valley / Hahn Mountain. “The name appeared on a map of Eastern PA ski areas, but the name was never actually used,” Rich recalls.
