I've added 12 new areas in Vermont, added to the Vermont page.  Most of them have little info on them, so I'm hoping some of you will remember these areas.  NELSAP now has 137 areas!  Wow!  I've also reorganized the VT page like NH.

Start of some more areas on NELSAP...two new ones and one completely rewritten.  Crotched Mtn, NH and Monteau, NH added.  Onset/Bobcat all updated with new info.  I've also redesigned one of the state's page, this one being NH.  I think its a little simpler than the table which allows me to manipulate it better.  Please let me know which you like better, the old way or the new way.

Just 18 hours after I posted Crotched, I got an email from Dave Kulis from Ascutney Mtn.  He sent me the trail map from their final year!  Check it out, it shows the quad.  Crotched certainly looked like the place to be. Also, this trail map answers some questions about Bobcat.

February 25, 1999

February 13, 1999
I've decided to add this new section as a journal of all that's new on NELSAP.  Lost areas and new info will be listed here.

Bald Mountain, Dedham Maine was updated with another listing.  I've also added 21 newly found lost Maine ski areas, thanks to a 1969 guide that Dave Hilton sent me.  Many of these have limited information, though, so if anybody remembers these areas, please let me know.  You can check out all of the lost Maine areas by clicking here.
