Every once in a while, I have recalled there being a ski resort somewhere off of Interstate 66 about 20 years ago. I never went there, but was curious if my memory was accurate. Recently, I was able to get the right search terms together and came up with this from DCSki.com: Mid-Atlantic Lost Ski Areas: Ski Cherokee. In short, Ski Cherokee was a tiny ski area near Linden (Exit 13) which is about 62 miles from the Washington D.C. border. There wasn’t much to it (one chairlift) and the lifespan was short with warm winters being part of the blame. The area is being turned into a housing development. Oh what could have been!

Anybody make it out to Ski Cherokee during its run?
