Alaska Lost Ski Areas Project
January 6, 2012 by staff
Alaska Lost Ski Areas Project, The Alaska Lost Ski Areas Project (ALSAP) is an Alaskan historical web site with the goal of documenting all lost downhill, cross country and jump ski sites in Alaska. A lost ski area is a site that was once used regularly for skiing, but is not used or used only rarely for skiing now. This web site is updated when new information on lost ski areas in Alaska is found or contributed. More information on lost Alaskan ski areas is always welcome ! Especially digital scans of old photos of lost ski areas in use.
Check the Recent Updates link to see what has recently been added. Here are some interesting lost ski area web pages that you might want to check out: Fire Island, City Ski Bowl, Independence Mine, Nome’s Dry Creek, Kennecott, Mount McKinley Army Recreation Camp, Arctic Valley, Cleary Summit, UAF Ski Hill, Curry Ski Hill, Manitoba, the Dan Moller Ski Trail and the Homer sites starting with the Kachemak Ski Club First Rope Tow. Also, the remote Cold War radar Air Force Stations have offered surprising lost ski areas. Places like Cape Newenham AFS, Murphy Dome AFS, Tatalina AFS and Indian Mountain AFS.
Plus – don’t miss these lost xc sites: Anchorage 4th Avenue and Girdwood Jr. National Trail.
Thanks to all the folks that have a piece of Alaska in their heart, whether they live in Alaska or not – who have contributed lost skiing site information (see the ALSAPPERS list). Your efforts to help preserve Alaskan skiing history are appreciated by many!!!
