Sharon Mountain Ski Area
, CT
Many thanks to Jon Regan, who discovered a postcard of this ski area. NELSAP had no prior record of this lost area. Jon posted the card on, where other readers had not heard of it. Betsy McDonough then contacted the Sharon, CT Historical Society, asking them if they knew of the area. Liz Shapiro, the director, responded by saying that the area operated in the early 1960's, and was located on Rte 4 across from West Woods Road.

(Right - the postcard that Jon found).

(Left-the back of the card, stating that there were 4 tows, and wide array of services)
Liz was able to scan an image they had at the Historical Society, which is viewable on the left.  It was taken by Hal MacIntosh, and is Courtesy of the Sharon Historical Society Archives.

To the right shows the ski area after a snowstorm. The lodge is clearly visible, as is a rope tow. Please click on the image for a larger version.

Jon visited the area on December 22, 2006, and found the area to be very overgrown.

We are hoping that more NELSAP readers remember this area or have additional pictures. Thanks to everybody above who found out the details of this previously unknown lost area!

Does anybody else remember this ski area?
