A chat with NELSAP's Jeremy Davis

There's something intriguing about an abandoned ski area, something that makes you wonder what the area had been like and what happened to it. That curiosity led Jeremy Davis to found the New England Lost Ski Area Project (NELSAP) in 1998, and in the years since then his organization has documented hundreds of lost ski areas in New York, New England and elswehere. Last week I had the opportunity to chat with Davis about NELSAP and the search for lost ski areas of the Adirondacks.

  1. Great interview, Jeff. I discovered the NELSAP site a few years and find it fascinating. There are at least six "lost"areas in the Muskoka region where I live and we have skied a couple of them. Muskoka has the claim to fame of being the location of the oldest lift (t-bar) still standing in Ontario. It is at a lost area with the beautiful name of Limberlost Lodge.
