Stories from the Slopes: Western New England Skiing History

Special | 38m 7s

Western New England was once a skiing mecca, with nearly 80 ski areas across four counties. Today, there are fewer than a dozen. Using archival film, historical images, and interviews, this locally produced film explores our ski history, revisits past ski-centric social norms, pays tribute to some of the major resorts no longer in operation, and celebrates the region’s still-active ski areas.
