Bousquet never missed a season. I think this is year 80 for that place.
Ahhhh, the ski train days.

Year 80 for Bousquet ... right you are, Newman! Founded in 1932, first snow train on February 10, 1935.

Yeah Yeah.. its MALSAPPED, not NELSAPPED, but for the weirdest chain of reopening events, I nominate Canaan Valley and Whitegrass ski touring centers:

1954 - Washington Ski Club starts Cabin Mountain Ski Area
1955 - Barton opens Weiss Knob Ski Area
1959 - State of WV takes Weiss Knob, Barton moves to a new location on Bald Knob of Cabin Mountain
1962 - Cabin Mountain Ski Area closes.
1970 - Weiss Knob Ski Area (on Cabin Mt) closes, Canaan Valley Ski Area on Weiss Knob opens.
1981 - Whitegrass ski touring center opens on Weiss Knob Ski Area site on Cabin Mt.

I seem to remember one of the Hinkley's telling me a bank owned Plattekill before Laz acquired it.

Woody, do you have any pictures of the old steam trains and real old pics of your 80 yr old area? Seem to remember pics of the old rope tow gripper somewhere
