Thanks to Mark Renson, we first heard of this area that operated in Bristol.
David Marinelli skied here a few times and has some more info: "I skied at the Page Park Hill a few times in the 60's. The park is a public park commonly known as Page Park. The formal name is De Witt Page Park. The entrances are off of Woodland and King streets in Bristol. There was a single gentle slope with a rope tow just south of the existing public pool. The rope tow was set up by the parks department in the winter. I remember the rope running over two automobile wheels attached to trees."
Here's an overhead view of the ski area, thanks to Thomas Mailhot for sending it our way.
||Thomas Mailhot sent us the following great historic pictures of Page Park. Here's is a picture of him doing gates at Page Park|

|Chris Lundquist visited this area during March, 2003, and took the following four pictures. He says the area entrance is off of Page Park Road, across from the Bristol Eastern High School. The ski area itself is located at behind the playground across from the baseball diamond. He says you can park in the playground parking lot and you will see the tow towers and both slopes. Here's looking up the slope to the right.||
