North Creek Ski Bowl, NY: 2/27/11

The North Creek Ski Bowl is an important part of the history of skiing in New York. On that spot, in 1935, Carl Shaefer installed the state’s first rope tow. North Creek’s first lift-served ski area was the final destination of the snow trains that ran until World War II.

But the small mountain is more than an historical treasure. It’s home to some great tree skiing. Please take a look at a trip report complete with Ski Bowl photos.
