Hidden among the hills and mountains of southern Vermont are the remnants of sixty former ski areas, their slopes returning to forest and their lifts decaying. Today, only thirteen areas remain open and active in southern Vermont. Over investment, local competition, weather variation, changing skier habits, insurance costs and just plain bad luck caused these ski areas to succumb and melt back into the landscape.

Londonderry Arts and Historical Society’s annual meeting will feature Lost Ski Areas of Southern Vermont presented by Jeremy Davis.

In his presentation, Davis, creator of the New England Lost Ski Areas Project, examines the role that these ski areas played in the development of the sport that is so critical to Vermont. Historical and contemporary photos and maps, personal stories, and the ski areas that have survived will all be featured.

Donations welcome. Parking will be across the street in the Custer Sharp House lot, 2461 Middletown Rd.
