From the New England Lost Ski Areas Project: “Beartown Ski Area was a classic, and somewhat long lived CCC area that was originally built as a Ski Train Destination. It was also one of the largest areas to close in Massachusetts (820′ drop)- only Brodie Mountain had a larger one (~1250′). With three rope tows and about 10 trails at its heyday, it was quite the happening place… Beartown’s genesis begins in 1935, when the CCC began clearing trails and slopes at this area.”
