The White Mountains of New Hampshire are world renowned for the array of skiing opportunities offered to every skier, from beginner to gold medal Olympian. Today over a dozen resorts entice tourists and locals each year with their well-manicured trails, high-speed lifts and slope-side lodging. But scattered throughout this region, the ghosts of former ski areas can still be found. In the White Mountains alone, sixty ski areas have closed since the 1930s. Author Jeremy Davis has compiled rare photographs, maps and personal memories to ensure that these beloved ski outposts, cherished by generations of skiers, are given recognition for transforming the White Mountains into a premier ski destination. Join us as we celebrate these former ski areas at this presentation. Attendees are encouraged to bring along their skiing momentos, photos, and stories to share.
Jeremy Davis is the author of four books, Lost Ski Areas of the White Mountains , Lost Ski Areas of Southern Vermont, Lost Ski Areas of the Southern Adirondacks , and Lost Ski Areas of the Northern Adirondacks , with the last 2 books winning the International Ski History Association’s Skade Award for outstanding regional ski history.
This program is free and open to the public.

Ride or Slide At Stowe For $35
The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame has arranged for members of the New England Ski Museum and other ski organizations to join in an on-snow celebration at Stowe on Thursday April 6, 2017 during this year’s Snowsport History Week.
Ski Museum members attending simply check in at the Hall of Fame tent at the base of the gondola in the main parking lot at Stowe Mountain Resort, where there will be a list with names of museum members in good standing. If you are not sure if your membership is current, you can call the Museum at 800-639-4181 to check.
Members will get a voucher for a $35 lift ticket for April 6, and breakfast and lunch will be available at the tailgating tents. Ten dollars per person attending will be donated to the Hall of Fame.
This is a great opportunity for likeminded industry and history-focused people to make turns together, have fun and get to know each other. This is also an affordable way to ski Stowe while meeting some legendary industry game changers such as Dan and John Egan, Billy Kidd, Bob Salerno, and John Clendenin who will be on-site making turns that day. All proceeds go to the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame.
