A defunct New England ski area is back on the market after previous attempts to resurrect it failed.

Woodbury Ski Area in Connecticut closed in 2016 due to a lack of snow and has not reopened.

This small ski area is in northwestern Connecticut, about two hours from New York City. A chairlift and multiple surface lifts serviced the skiing and snow tubing operations. Residents referred to it as “Rod’s” after its owner, Olympic skier Rod Taylor.
