to Peter Alban, we now know about this lost area in Plattsburgh:
|"I was just
shown a small ski hill on the old air force base in
golf course which is still
in use, however the ski hill is now used to store railroad tracks, old cars, and
in the winter. The old rope tow towers, lights, and
top lift shack are still
there as well as the old truck used to power the lift. I would say it is around
150 vertical feet."
. The area is located on a hill next to the bases
To the right is an aerial view of the slope. Note that it is quite small. Google Earth estimates the vertical to be just 2 feet! That's not correct though, it appears to be around 100 feet. The tow is about 500 feet long.
|Peter Alban took the following photos in November of 2008, showing the ski area. To the left are parts of the rope tow in storage.|
