Walnut Mountain - History

Walnut Mountain Ski Area, Liberty, New York

Liberty's Walnut Mountain Ski Area: photos

Here's one of a small set of rare black and white photos of the long-gone Walnut Mountain Ski Area dating from the 1930s.  The others in the set are on the Memories of Liberty CD-ROM.

The Walnut Mountain Ski Area, in Liberty, NY, takes one back to a day when skiing was indeed a backyard sport -- one of rope tows, wooden skis, baggy pants, and a day when skiing had not yet split into downhill and cross-country categories.

We've continued to turn up additional Walnut Mountain Ski Area material since Memories of Liberty was published.  For example, we found a brochure published circa 1937 by Liberty Winter Sports, Inc.  Click on the image below to see the first page of this brochure enlarged.
