Skiing has a long and storied history here in North America, and any die-hard skier can tell you all about the history of their local hill. We're putting your skills to the test with a new series called Skispotter. Each week we'll bring you an old-timey photo of a ski lift, ski area, or historic building and you- dedicated ski buffs- will guess where it's from. Have an old photo you'd like us to use? Drop us an email, we'd be ever so grateful.
This ski town has many nicknames/claims to fame, but it also has a darker side that the glossy resort brochures don't advertise: It's (supposedly) haunted. Not just your garden variety "ghost in a former brothel" stuff, either. The town and environs are rife with reported sightings of the dead and undead, and many buildings have a resident spirit or 30. The most famous ghost in town is said to reside in a hotel.
Tell us, Curbediverse, what is the name of this town, and the name of the hotel reputed to be haunted? Make your guesses in the comments, and don't forget to send us a tip if you have a vintage photo to contribute.
