Vermont Ski Areas Map

Inspired by a recent episode of Vermont Edition, I have created this map of alpine ski areas in Vermont.  Location data for defunct facilities was taken from the descriptions on the New England Lost Ski Areas Project website.   I didn't include all of the areas on the list in my map, as a number of them were basically no more than backyard operations for friends and neighbors.  However, in southern Vermont (south of Route 4) there are quite a few defunct facilities of significant size - more than one lift and at least 6 different trails.  These are labeled with "defunct ski area" on the map, and their trails are usually visible in the satellite imagery.
