The Mount Eustis ski area in northern New Hampshire, which has been closed since the early 1970s, is about to reopen.
A ribbon cutting ceremony is scheduled for Saturday.
The Caledonian Record reports (http://bit.ly/1C3lbDE) organizers raised about $50,000 toward the project and received about $75,000 worth of donated labor, equipment and materials.
This season a temporary rope tow will take skiers and riders 300 feet, about a quarter of the way up the hill. Those wishing to access upper terrain will have to hike. Next year a permanent rope tow will run the entire 1,350 feet to the top.
The area will be open to skiers and snowboarders.
Lights will allow for night skiing.
