I found this area listed as being near “Midville.” I can find no Midville in Michigan, perhaps this was in Middleville. Apparently so from the posts below. On Feb. 3, 1966, The Cass City Chronicle printed the AAA Guide to Winter Sports Fun in Michigan. It lists Eskar Hills with 6 slopes, 4 tows, night skiing and snowmaking.
Geologically, an eskar is a stratified alluvial deposit, usually shaped as a long, narrow line of hills resulting from channeled glacial melt outflow (often beneath the glacier). Stratification is caused by the seasonal nature of glacial melting; larger, heavier gravel deposits when flow is heavy, sand and clay when light. Eskars are among the many glacial features occurring throughout Michigan.
In addition, I have found references to a Middleville Ski Area. Was this another name for Eskar Hills?
If you know anything about skiing at Eskar Hills or Middleville, please post it or send it to us via the directions on the About MILSAP page.
