Black Panther Ski Hill
Huntington, MA
Late 1930's - ?

Black Panther was a fairly major ski area for so early in Massachusetts.  It had a 450 foot vertical drop and the longest tow in the state at 1600 feet.  Thats a long tow!  Imagine trying to hang on for that long.  I'm not sure what happened after 1939, but if anybody knows anything about this early, please let me know.
