Other LSAPs

Here are links to other sites dedicated to remembering lost ski areas:

NELSAP, the New England lost ski areas project. To my knowledge, the earliest attempt to catalog and remember the places where people grew up skiing. Started in 1989(?), it covers the New England states of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut. It also lists some areas in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Quebec, Alberta, and Afghanistan.

DC Lost Ski Areas lists lost areas in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, and West Virginia.

Colorado Ski History, has a section devoted to lost ski areas in Colorado. They also list a few in Utah, Wyoming, and one in Montana.

Lost ski areas of Washington has moved to wikispaces as Lost Ski areas of the Pacific Northwest.  They cover Washington, Oregon, and Idaho.

California Ski Library doesn’t yet (see comment below) deal specifically with lost ski areas, but has a lot of information about the history of the sport in that state.

  1. Hello. Just to let you know I am currently working on a book on the Lost Ski Areas of Southern California. I don’t have a specific website for the lost ski areas, but my general website is http://www.skilibrary.com.

    This site is awesome. I grew up in Montana and my uncle owned and operated the local ski area there for over 25 years. I love little old family ski areas and have a new mission to find and ski if possible some of these old closed hills. I live in leelanau county and have already skied Sugarloaf and timberlee. I think I’m going to look for chainsaw mountain in Maple City next. After growing up skiing and ski patrolling in Montana, getting excited to ski in Michigan can be difficult but this might just be the adventure that I am looking for. Thanks and keep this sure going.
