In case you missed it, NPR’s Only A Game had a great story on the Thunderbolt Ski Run in Adams, MA.
Not familiar with the ski run? The Thunderbolt Ski Run was built as a world class downhill ski racing
trail on the east slope of Mt. Greylock in 1934. It was, at the time, one of the best ski racking trails in the U.S. But with the advent of modern lift systems the Thunderbolt fell into disrepair and was virtually un-skiable by the 1980s. But fret not, the Thunderbolt has been restored to its old glory for skiers looking for a very different, lift-less skiing experience.
