Quotes
" I remember hearing about this as a kid growing up in Winthrop. It was along route 133 heading from Winthrop to Wayne. It was on the left just before Berry Pond comes into view. It was very small but looked big to and excited young skier. The name that comes to mind is Brandywine. I'd be interested if anyone else remembers more about this. There was a big wide trail cut into the low slow rolling hill. I would guess that this all happened in the late 60's or very early 70's. "
Rick Ray, 2011
