Watch ‘Abandoned’ a Documentary about Deserted Ski Resorts

When chairlifts are left to decay, and lodges shelter field mice rather than skiers, what happens when the doors shutter for the last time on a resort? During Colorado’s heyday of ski area growth, there were nearly 200 ski resorts in operation. Today, there are roughly 30. This documentary endeavours to answer the questions of what happened and what it was like to ski those smaller hills that have since shuttered.



The filmmakers The Road Wesst Traveled has set up an Indiegogo Campaign to help finance the rest of the film. Check it out here and help them complete the documentary.
