“Paul” clued us in to this one in mid-February, 2014. He said he went out there with a friend and saw old rope tow towers on a hill overlooking Bald Eagle Lake, south of Ortonville. I asked some patrollers at Mt. Holly and two of them remembered skiing at Bald Eagle many years ago. It may have been like Mt. Gabriel, an amenity for a recreational housing development that either failed financially or the owners elected to drop after a year or two, possibly because there were several commercial ski areas within a few miles.
If you skied at Bald Eagle, or know when it opened and closed and how many ropes it had, please let us know.
