Blast from the Past!

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.
