Joshua's Saddleback hike/ ski thread got me thinking of occupied condo's next to a closed but may have reopened ski area. Just not only sad but eerie.( to me anyway)

Curious what ski areas have been lost and may have reopened with condos slopeside that have been continually occupied to the best of your knowledge.

Off the top of my head

Saddleback Maine
Crotched NH
Sugarloaf Mich

Others?

    The Hermitage Club/Haystack - heck they're even starting to do some new unit construction to add to Powder Horn Village which isn't too far from where to former Haystack lower Lodge used to be.

    That might be its own unique class - condos built at existing ski area, ski area goes NELSAP for a few years, ski area comes back to life, more units are being built at the existing condo site!!

    Couple crown NH (houses) doubtful to reopen but nothing stopping it. Would you count hotels or inns ? If so you could add a lot more.

    Yea I thought about reversing it also. For instance, Big Squaw has the lost Inn/ hotel with the partially reopened ski area.
    Sure add an Inn hotel, makes it eerier.

    Ascutney: I think it works more as a home base for people skiing Okemo. 5% re-opened with a rope tow slope.

    How about all the condos that took over Great Gorge North? That used to be a functioning ski area with it's own lodge and multiple lifts. It is now down to one lift, one trail, no lodge, and hundreds of cheaply built condos sitting on what used to be pretty good ski trails.

    Among NELSAP areas, I remember a few A-Frames at Birdseye, VT; at the Highlands, NH, instructors were shown some of their "model condos" with a significant commission if we sold one.

    Are you talking about the old Great Gorge North or are you talking about the old Vernon Valley ski area. There were 3 ski areas (Great Gorge - which became Great Gorge South), (Vernon Valley) and (Great Gorge North - behind the Minerals Spa).

    The actual Great Gorge North is behind Minerals Spa.
