Has anyone ever heard of a private or planned ski area in Beech Mountain Lakes near Freeland/ Hazleton PA?

On google earth pro, there is a satellite image from 1992 that shows a rope tow line with two still maintained trails at the bottom. There was a rope tow or lift it seemed that reached to the top of the mountain. The image from 1992 also showed two curvy trails running from the top of the mountain to the bottom of the mountain. Note that this ski area has no records, so it may have been a planned ski area or a private ski area because it is in a private development. 

Green = trails

Blue = lifts/ ropetows

These are the images of the ski area. They show the trails, ropetow and liftlines, and the landworks at the top and mid section to make a level surface for the lift and ropetow.

I actually know someone who lives in a community called Eagle Rock, in Hazelton, PA, that has ski slopes.

Don’t know if that is what you are asking about?

There are two abandoned ski areas in Hazelton with one still operating. The one you might be thinking of was a ski area farther south of Hazelton that I forget the name of (not eagle rock). This area however is farther north and if you want the coordinates here they are.
