We didn’t know that Jim has been placing geocaches at the lost ski hills and areas of Colorado, and were happy to learn about his efforts.

According to Jim’s blog (Cacheology: Caching With Cachet) he has been making a variety of hides since March 2008.

What Are These Books?

Boys-at-Berthoud-cropped-USFS-photoIn Colorado, there is a story beneath the story about the state and skiing. It’s a history that was being lost—and it’s a fun history.

There are over 140 lost ski areas in Colorado; that is, people created and skied many areas throughout the state and then closed them for various reasons. These two books by Caryn and Peter Boddie take you on a tour of these places and introduce you to the areas—with all great details, including GPS coordinates of the areas. We also introduce you to the early skiers through words and historic images.

Buy from the authors here and we will be happy to sign books before we ship them, but please let us know in “Order Notes” to whom you would like us to sign them. If you don’t instruct us, we’ll sign with a general phrase, such as “Enjoy!” or “Enjoy your tour of Colorado’s lost ski hills.” For a limited time, we will give free shipping for books order from us.

If you have memories to share about lost ski areas in Colorado, please share them on this site. Also, we’d love to have you review our books here.

Thanks and enjoy! Caryn and Peter Boddie
