M-1 does have a mid-station (unloading only I think).

Maddona mountain is the main mountain (the original name of the ski area). There's also Sterling & Morse mountains.

Morse mountain (the beginner area) does have a trail bearing that name.

Slightly different version
1. My main lift has a mid station
2. My original name (not my current name) was the name of the mountain on which I am located
3. My current name is the same as that of another ski area in another state
Shawnee Peak!

1. I'm very small relative to other ski areas in the region
2. Although small, most of my terrain is consistently steep from top to bottom
3. Only one out of every 3 chairs on my main lift has a safety bar and padded seat

4. I only have 3 lifts, of which one was replaced over the summer after 35+ years of service

Snow King

I knew it wouldn't be Northeast considering your location :grin:

Yup! Hint #5 was going to be "It's in Wyoming" Thanks for making me not have to go that far!

Snow King seems to be the epitome of what you'd want in a local hill. Very Close, accessible by foot or bus, very cheap, hourly skiing, night skiing, a lot of vert for a local hill, and challenging terrain relative to its size. I would've killed for a hill like that growing up.

1. Before they came by trains, now there's only planes.
2. I'm forgotten because there is a bigger ski resort in the town next to me.
3. My heyday was pre-WWII.

4. I'm surprised no one on this site skis me considering all my history and awesome (but short) classic terrain.

I was thinking there, but figured there is no way people here would ski the "lowly Bosquet".
I havr been racing in their beer league for 7 years and love the place. Not the greatest terrain, but awesome vibe there.

Skied it once 4-5 years ago and enjoyed it. Narrow terrain, old lifts, uber retro atmosphere. I'll be back... eventually.

This was my place growing up and learned to ski and race there. I actually think this small area has some of the best technical skiing in the area and travel from CT to ski it every year. Granted, snow conditions must be really good to take advantage of the place, but love the vibe (very little) and terrain. Louise's Folly and the old "X-trail" through the woods were my first real side country terrain. Place is very cheap for tix and just fun to spend a day. But don't go there....LOL.

Let's try this one more time. I happened upon an interesting article about a ski area so I figured I would put some of the details here.

1) I didn't open until the 1990's, but I closed two seasons after I opened.
2) You can see the remains of me from the interstate.
3) I am not in New England, but one of my lifts wound up in New Hampshire.

This DEFINITELY sounds like the indoor ski slope Xanadu next to Giants Stadium... no?
