NELSAP readers remember this small ski area that operated in Stratham:
Dave Hilton: Stratham Hill in Stratham, NH it had a tow in the 60's, I skied there! A warming hut right beside Rt.33 just before the NH College.
Chris Rohr: I would like to submit another area to be added to your list of lost ski areas in New Hampshire - Stratham ski tow. This area was located at Statham Hill Park in Statham NH. it was very small with one rope tow, but I skied there in the 1960's.
Shaun Berry: Stratham Hill Ski Area in Stratham NH had a single lift and slope. I think it operated in the mid 70s.
Peter Sawyer: There was another ski area that you have not mentioned in Stratham that operated from about 1962-1968 on a single trail on the side of Stratham Hill. The trail, mostly grown in, can still be seen from Portsmouth Avenue. It had a single rope tow powered by a school bus at the top of the hill. The bus was still present the last time I was up there about 8 or 9 years ago.
