Preserving the History of Snowsports in the Mid-Atlantic

Lost Ski Areas

Over the past half century, the total number of ski areas in the United States has fallen significantly. Today, there are around 30 major ski resorts operating in the Mid-Atlantic region. But there are over one hundred Mid-Atlantic ski areas that have shuttered over the years. DCSki and its readers are chronicling memories of these ski areas before they are lost to time.

DCSki has uncovered information on 104 "lost" ski areas. For some, we have extensive details including comments and photos from the original operators of the area. For others, we have little more than a distant memory from a DCSki reader. Because we rely on reader memories to patch together an incomplete picture, there is the possibility that some details may be inaccurate. We invite readers to attach their own comments to these profiles so our understanding of ski history in the Mid-Atlantic continues to evolve.

If you know of a missing area that should be on this list, let DCSki's Editor know. We also recommend the excellent New England Ski Areas Project (NELSAP) web site for information on lost areas in New England.
