The Wyoming Mountains Are Hiding A Forgotten Ski Resort That’s Practically A Ghost Town

For over half a century, the world has flocked to Wyoming in the winter for the epic skiing. With more than 100 mountain ranges spread out across the state and an average annual snowfall of over 80 inches – some areas of the Cowboy State get more than 13 feet each year – it’s a skier’s dream come true.

Considering the sheer amount of skiable terrain, it might be surprising to learn that there are fewer than a dozen ski resorts in Wyoming, and even more surprising that there aren’t as many now as there used to be. In fact, there’s an all but forgotten ski area hiding in the Bighorn Mountains in the northern part of the state. Several small towns encircle it, making it a convenient ski destination for communities that aren’t near the larger, more popular resorts; yet it sits deserted and looking like a ghost town.
