New York Lost Ski Area Photos
Cortina - Haines Falls, NY - Photos
April 18, 2004:
I drove to Cortina and drove around the base area. The lodging facility still appears to be active, as well as aspects of the mountain - a possible tubing operation amongst other things. I was surprised to see man made snow on a wire rope area, though this was not as much of a stand out as the scattered chairs from the Beta Lift.
Highmount - Highmount, NY - Photos
April 18, 2004:
I drove by Highmount after stopping at Bellayre. Area is pretty well abandoned. I did not drive up to the lodge as the land was posted. Lodge looks to have been of decent size for a lost area.
Petersburg Pass - Petersburg, NY - Photos
August 30, 2002:
I took two photos of the incomplete New York expansion on my way back from Michigan.

April 13, 2002:
I took part in a NELSAP hike here with Jeremy and some contributors. We hiked up the mountain just to skiers right of the double chair lift line for the most part, ate at the summit, then hiked down somewhat to skiers left of the lift line. Once at the base, we explored the top of the Poma slope that heads toward Massachusetts.

March 9, 2002:
First, I parked at the parking lot and walked around the immediate base area. I then crossed the road and walked up the ridge to the south and took some photos from there. Next, I drove down to the New York valley to take some shots of the incomplete major expansion, as well as to look for a possible base area (some hints, but nothing conclusive, all private property now). I then returned to the Petersburg Pass parking lot and hiked the straight, flat trail to the right of the ski area - along the top of the proposed New York expansion. I noticed smaller growth from the twenty year growth, as well as hints of logging trails on the side of the mountain still holding snow.

Late 1980s/Early 1990s:
Turned around here on the way (lost) to the Berkshire Mall. Did not know it was once a ski area.
Scotch Valley - Stamford, NY - Photos
April 18, 2004:
After almost getting stuck in a flash flood just south of here (water almost up to the hood of my Jeep in one place), I rounded the corner and made it to Scotch Valley. The area was very well locked up - fence and pond keeping people out. I could see one of the buildings had fire damage. The person on duty at the lodging facility next to it did not know much at all about the ski area. The lifts seem to be in good shape from afar - chairs still on tensioned cables.
Shumaker - Little Falls, NY - Photos
May 19, 2004:
I took two photos of this lost ski area on my way to Michigan on I-90 West. Lifts still visible from the road. Trail growth is increasing.

August 30, 2002:
I took two photos of this lost ski area while driving back from Michigan on I-90 East. Trails appear to be somewhat mowed.
