I have stumbled upon a small lost ski slope with the remains of a rope
tow in the town next to me.
The Location is at the Katonah Memorial Park in Katonah, NY. It is completely overgrown but the remains of the rope tow are still visible (see the attached pictures). Walking it off, the tow seems to be about 600 feet long and roughly 120' of vertical drop.
I haven't found anyone around that knows much about it other than it operated in the 1950's and it was driven from the top with an old pickup truck chassis.
To the right - the old liftline.
