Ahah...another one for Rhode Island! Thanks to NELSAP reader Don, we now know of this ski area. Here are the details:
"I'm not sure if you know but there is an old
abandoned ski area located at Neutaconkanut Hill. It is located on
Plainfield Street on the Providence/Johnston Rhode Island line. I believe
it is very old. There are 3 slopes. There are two tow rope towers with the
wheels still on them. People still sled down part of the hill. I
metal detect for old coins and have found a few on the slope and surrounding
area. There is a soccer field and baseball field at the bottom of the
slope. It might have been run by the town."

Anybody else remember this ski area?
