Last Sunday, I went on my first organized hike of a lost ski area, with a bunch of people from the Snowjournal forum. We visited Bearpen Mountain in the Catskills, 15 miles west of Hunter. What made this especially memorable was that the two brothers who developed the ski area, in operation from 1955 to 1959, joined us.

Here's the trip report, which includes a link to my earlier article that tells the story of what could've/should've become the largest ski area in the East.
