(At the time there were two other ski slopes in Garrett County. Both were operated as attractions for restaurants, one at Guntertown and the other at Happy Hills on U.S. 40.)
this was in about 1947

Hi. Ended up here while Googling Guntertown Ski Lodge for a 1940's era real photo postcard I found and am currently listing on Ebay for the next week starting tonite 3/7/11. You should be able to search Ebay to see a pic - if interested in seeing what the lodge looked like.
