Happy 2017–2018 Ski Season! Remembering Lost Area in South Park

Sticker on bench made out of snowboards at Indian Mountain.

When you’re driving through the vast South Park on your way to well-known ski areas and mountain communities, try to envision a ski area right there.

Indian Mountain operated about ten miles southeast of Jefferson and served a local community.

One summer, the authors went there to investigate. We walked the old runs  and took pictures of remaining signs of the old lifts. We also found an old sticker for the area on a bench made of snowboards.

You can find out a little more about Indian Mountain in the Lost Ski Areas of the Front Range and Northern Mountains book.

Have a fun and safe ski season!

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.

Maybe you’d enjoy geocaching in regard to the lost ski areas of Colorado? Check out Jim’s blog and contact him through it.
