When I was a child, my family were members of the Huntington Valley Ski Club, and I remember my father taking me to this small mountain (hill), that was being prepared as their own ski place. We were building the parking lot, and us kids ran up and down the hill, there was a small shack on the hill, I think we were able to put a rope tow in as the lift. I am talking 1974-75 ?? Does that ring a bell? I don't know where it was....any info or pictures would be great.

I have been a member of the Huntingdon Valley Ski Club for years.  I remember the club ski hill that we built back in the 70's.  I took movies of the club hill, chalet, rope tow, and of course the members.  I'v had the movies made into a DVD.

Kieth Keefer was asking about the hill....hope he gets this message.
