1950's-Circa early 1960's
Thanks to Mary Ruppert, we now know of this ski area that operated in Littleton. Here are her details:
"As students at the Catholic Grade School in Littleton (a short walk from the park) we took school sponsored ski lessons at the Park in the early 60's. We quickly outgrew the little hill. The Remick Park Hill is now used for sledding. In recent years I've not noticed any remnants of the rope tow."
Jeff Plant states that the area closed around 1960.
William C. Scheib, Jr has some more information: I lived in Littleton until the mid Ď50ís. I remember going with my father and the Lionís Club each fall and putting up the rope for the tow. Someone special came from, I think Franconia, to splice it each year. In grades one through three, I attended Kilburn School next to the high school which was a couple blocks from the park. We had ski racks in the basement of the school. After school we would go to the park and ski our hearts out until our parents would come and drag us home for supper. The slope got steeper closer to the baseball grandstand. We used to build a jump on the pitch. There were organized races for the kids also. I am pretty sure they were organized by the Lionís Club. After supper, we often went skating on the rink in the park.
Jayne O'Connor also told NELSAP of this area.
If you remember this ski area and have more info, just let us know!
