Ski Areas Within Cities

Here's another spinoff of Josh's thread: What ski areas are located, at least partially, within an incorporated city (no population minimum)?

We can start with this list of major cities from the other thread:
Minneapolis, MN: Buck Hill
Anchorage AK: Alyeska
Anchorage AK: Hilltop
Manchester, NH: McIntyre

    I believe you are correct and Osceola Tow is also in Pittsfield.

    Bradford is within the city of Haverhill.

  • Once you say any city, the list grows rapidly.

    Just in NH:
    claremont: Arrowhead
    Conway: Cranmore
    Franklin: Veterans Memorial
    Plymouth: Tenney

    I suspect there are more in NH.

    Arrowhead and Veterans qualify, but Conway and Plymouth are not cities.

  • Arrowhead and Veterans qualify, but Conway and Plymouth are not cities.

    Veterans is just outside the city limit of Brattleboro.
  • Brattleboro is not a city either :) The only cities in VT: Burlington, South Burlington, Rutland City, Barre City (Stars-Go-By lost), Montpelier (Sabin Pasture lost), Winooski, St. Albans City (It appears that the tippy top of Hard'Ack may be in the city...but the vast majority of the ski area is in St. Albans Town), Newport City (Chamberlin Birch lost), and Vergennes.
    Location: Greater Burlington, VT

    I'm not sure what you mean, maybe you're thinking of Living Memorial Park? Veterans is in Franklin, NH.

    You're right. Anyway, Living Memorial does not qualify. ;)
