In Hunt Valley, Maryland was a ski area called Oregon Ridge. With a 200 foot vertical drop, Oregon Ridge was open from 1964 to 1969. It was certain you would need a sturdy set of gloves or mittens before embarking on a day on the snow at Oregon Ridge as their main mode of skier transportation was six rope tows and one chairlift.



Oregon Ridge is now used for sledding as well as hang-gliding training. This 200 foot hill is also great for snowboarding training, as the slow hike back up gets the blood flowing and the legs burning!
