When I was a child, my family were members of the Huntington Valley Ski Club, and I remember my father taking me to this small mountain (hill), that was being prepared as their own ski place. We were building the parking lot, and us kids ran up and down the hill, there was a small shack on the hill, I think we were able to put a rope tow in as the lift. I am talking 1974-75 ?? Does that ring a bell? I don't know where it was....any info or pictures would be great.
