Description
The Hill opened up in the late 60's, I'm not sure how long it ran for but I've sent an email to the local Museum curator to get a bit more information and hopefully some historical pictures too. There isn't a ton left out there but it's a pretty cool place to stroll around. The old lift buildings are pretty interesting and I thought the old safety gate sign was really cool to see and there is even a few pieces of fire wood in the corner. The fire place is long gone but theres a few bricks which I assume were a part of it and the stove pipes were left behind. All the lift towers are still there as well as both bull wheels. It's really easy to access from the highway and very simple to locate as the lift building is visible from the dirt road. Also, there are a few T-Bars left laying on the ground there is a picture of 2 of them, they look like metal hooks with the wooden base on the bottom.

I like these old ski hills. This one looks great! Mount McKay is also a must to see

Thanks Clay, I'm going back there to do a bit more kicking around to see what I can find down a couple of the old runs and what not, and hopefully find my sunglasses too.
