Lost Ski Areas of Colorado's Front Range and Northern Mountains (Paperback)
Steamboat is one of the ski areas chronicled in this unusual history.— From 5 books for Adults to check out for the New Year
Lost Ski Areas is the kind of book that history nerds like me will love. It is difficult to find much information on lost ski mountains without digging hard, and this book has the most complete, in-depth catalog of lost areas that I have found to date. Take a look, you’ll find one you can see from the store and at least two that you can see without leaving town.

-Sam— From Astonishing April Staff Picks
Avid skiers have flocked to the northern reaches of the Centennial State for over a century. While the prized powder remains the same, the top skiing destinations bear only a faint resemblance to the resorts of previous generations. Neighborhood slopes, such as Tabernash Hill, featured little more than a rope tow and a storage shed. Other spots like Estes Park's Old Man Mountain held tournaments and contests with Olympic participants. From the Cathy Cisar Winter Playground in Craig to Cheyenne Mountain's Ski Broadmoor and everywhere in between, join authors Caryn and Peter Boddie on a tour through the lost ski areas of northern Colorado and the Front Range.
