The stories behind ski hills of the past

Listen to this story
For every ski area that's survived, like Titus Mountain or Mt. Pisgah in Saranac Lake, there are dozens of ski hills that didn't.

Jeremy Davis has been documenting them all over New York and New England. He's researched the stories of more than 700 lost ski hills. He's written several books about them, including Lost Ski Areas of the Southern Adirondacks.

Davis told David Sommerstein he became interested in ski areas of the past as a boy, when his family was taking a ski trip to New Hampshire. They drove by an abandoned ski area.
