Anyone recognize the location of the attached picture (lifted from the Baltimore Sun archives)?
I have this borderline obsession of what this place was like back when it was open… and am wondering if any folks ever got to ski here. I really wish it was still open. But as I understand it, the regional weather and warmer climate did not help matters, and it shut down in the early 70s (I think). They used to make snow too (I have a cool picture of that as well).
Hint 1: It’s close. Many have probably driven by it hundreds of times.
Hint 2: The tow rope is still there, but is not operating. You can still see the old Chairlift supports
Hint 3: I wouldn’t sit on that right-hand side if you want to see the Fireworks when you’re there.
Oh, the Answer: It’s Oregon Ridge.
