The Town That Moved A Mountain

In the late 1950s a group of ski enthusiasts in Maine built a ski area on Spruce Mountain in North Jay. They cleared trails, bought and installed a rope tow, built a warm-up hut, and sold tickets. It was a great little slope, and lots of people came to ski, but access to the area was difficult, so after two short seasons they decided to move the entire operation to a hilly cow pasture.
