Let it snow, let it snow… if you are a skier, that white stuff is the right stuff! The Southern Adirondacks were once home to dozens of small ski areas that no longer exist today. In this presentation based on his book, “Lost Ski Areas of the Southern Adirondacks,” ski historian Jeremy Davis chronicles the history of these vanished ski areas with photographs and memories from those who enjoyed them, while also paying homage to restored and classic skiing opportunities still available in the region.

The Brown Bag Lunch Lecture Series is a monthly, hour-long program presented in partnership by the Saratoga Springs Heritage Area Visitor Center and the Saratoga Springs Public Library. This event is conducted in the Dutcher Community Room located on the main floor of the library.

This free program is open to the public and begins promptly at noon. Tea and coffee are provided. For more information, please contact the Visitor Center at 518-587-3241.
