Check this full update on the very much open Blackwater Ski Area, Andover, NH. For NELSAP fans, they operate the old King Ridge Northside T-bar on their ski hill.

Jeremy, great read and pictures, I remember some of those kids racing at Mt. Snow when I worked the races there. I like how they used the old skis at the lodge. I guess some of them will be at Harris Hill Ski Jump.

Great pictures! Looks like a fun place with an old new england ski area feel. None of the hi-tech stuff at all the other areas with the exception of snowmaking.

But if I may... If this area is open, then why is it on Nelsap?!

Hey guys,

We like to highlight smaller open areas on the site as well, give them some publicity, etc. They are listed on the "still open" section. By no means do we think that any of these will close - rather they are on there just to show that there are plenty of smaller ski areas still open.

Plus the area has a NELSAP element - the lost King Ridge T-bar.

I was there on Saturday. Blackwater gets lots of SL races.

It seems that everytime I'm there the ol' T-Bar cable gets knocked off it's wheel, and they have to roll their cat out to re-attach it.

Sounds like they need to adjust the counter weight. That makes me wonder how the state does inspection on t-bars. On a chair they can ride the rope in a work basket. I have seen handle tows inspected, but wonder how the get to shiv wheels on a t-bar. I guess they walk with a ladder?

How do you find out when Blackwater is open to the public? The ski lodge looks like it belongs in the Candy Land game. I wish all the open areas were on NELSAP. They all have stories and I love seeing old pictures, and often old lifts that were replaced. I'd love to read the history of a place like Nashoba or Blue Hills, why should wait until they close to learn about their past?

Some areas have good history sections. Nashoba for example: Nashoba history

I know Berkshire East's is very complete, and Sugarbush and MRG have history pages as well. Others? Maybe a new thread/list??

Not to mention the NE Ski Museum's collection and the VT Ski Museum.
