Who has skied at college ski areas?
Or areas very near a college? Rick mentioned Colby (NELSAP), which was one of the two first areas I skied. It had just one main slope with snowmaking and a fast T-bar, and a beginner slope which I never saw open. The slope started off gentle, with pretty pine trees in the midst of it, then got fairly steep. As a beginner, I think I progressed a lot on that slope. Although my confidence was not greatly boosted the time I lost control and skidded right past the crowd at the lift line, into the bushes on the bank of Messalonskee Stream.
I also skied little Yawgoo Valley, still in business, while at the University of Rhode Island. Apparently it wasn't very memorable.
