Avid skiers have flocked to the northern reaches of the Centennial State for over a century. While the prized powder remains the same, the top skiing destinations bear only a faint resemblance to the resorts of previous generations. Neighborhood slopes, such as Tabernash Hill, featured little more than a rope tow and a storage shed. Other spots, such as Estes Park’s Old Man Mountain, held tournaments and contests with Olympic participants. From the Cathy Cisar Winter Playground in Craig to Cheyenne Mountain’s Ski Broadmoor and everywhere in between, join authors Caryn and Peter Boddie on a tour through the lost ski areas of northern Colorado and the Front Range.
This book is a fun read. It’s 208 pages with dozens of historic photos, both black and white and color, of lost ski areasand old time skiers of Colorado’s Front Range and northern mountains. This is one of two books on this topic by the authors; the companion book is on lost areas in the central and southern mountains of the state.
