A DCSki reader remembers skiing at an area named Hickory Ridge in the early 1970s, located in Cherry Ridge, Pennsylvania, near Honesdale.
this area was once posted on this site, and then removed - I think someone claimed it was still operational - I really think this place isn't running right now - the owners might have plans of rekindling the ski area, or selling it as a ski area, but I don't think you can go buy a lift ticket or anything
I remember skiing here, great small place, Music, ability to ski trails thru the woods. It was small, but it was FUN. I forget what kind of lifts they had, certainly a rope tow and a T/J bar. Must have been the very last of the 60's that we went there.
Skied there many times as a kid (pre teens) in the 60-early 70's. Lodge was at the top and they had a t-bar lift.
The old Hickory Ridge Ski Area is now Hickory Ridge Resort. Over 20 buildings have been built 9 businesses and maintained two ski slopes and 6 miles of cross country ski trails.The resort is closed and for sale due to health problems.If anyone is interested it can be seen at hickoryridgeresort.com . We are very negotiable in the selling price.Would make a great company retreat or private lodge.Thanks-The owner, John Hagler
