Punkatasset Hill
Concord, MA

Punkatasset Hill was a very interesting area.  Who would have thought that Concord, MA was the site of a former ski area?  There were never any lifts, but skiers would hike up this slope and ski down.  A major jump was located to the left of the picture above.  Apparently, jumping contests were held during the 1930's.

Here's some more info from Jed Diehl:
"Punkatasset Hill in Concord, MA (on conservation land off Monument St.) has a ski slope that is still cleared. It is short and steep, and I believe is still occasionally skied.  I don't think it ever had a lift. I have a friend how says she has a home movie "of the Norwegian National Team skiing on Punkataset Hill in ~1927."

The actual ski slope has remained in fairly decent shape considering it is 60 years old.  The hill is much steeper than is shown in either of these pictures.
