The Skiway, as it's known locally, is a favorite of locals and the Dartmouth College community. It's the home hill for the nationally ranked Dartmouth Alpine Team. Thousands of Dartmouth students have learned to ski (and now snowboard) here and perhaps saw snow for the first time. Generations of kids have cycled through the Ford-Sayre ski program on the Skiway's slopes or have participated in a ski program here through area schools. Moms and Dads love the Skiway because it's a safe place to drop off the kids for a morning or afternoon of snowplay without worrying about where to find them later.
