Brown Bag Lunch: Lost Ski Areas in (and near) Saratoga Springs

Date: Thursday, December 11
Time: Noon - 1:00 p.m.

Let it snow, let it snow… if you are a skier, that white stuff is the right stuff! The Southern Adirondacks were once home to dozens of small ski areas that no longer exist today. In this presentation based on his book, "Lost Ski Areas of the Southern Adirondacks," ski historian Jeremy Davis chronicles the history of these vanished ski areas with photographs and memories from those who enjoyed them, while also paying homage to restored and classic skiing opportunities still available in the region.
