Pine Top Ski Area, located on Escoheag Hill near West Greenwich, opened for the 1965-66 ski season. With two T-Bar lifts and an advertised parking capacity of 1,200 cars, Pine Top was rumored to be the most popular ski area in Rhode Island during its heyday. The ski area featured snowmaking and night skiing.

Due in part to poor snow years, Pine Top went into a period of decline in the late 1970s. An unsuccessful attempt was made to operate a summertime motorcycle park, in hopes to boost revenues.
Pine Top likely closed in 1980. The base lodge was burned by vandals in the early to mid 1980s.
