1967 - It Was Good Ski Season For New England Resorts

...Rhode Island ski resorts survived abnormal warm weather in January to record a good season, with one exception. The January snow lack was balanced by good falls in other months plus many cold nights for the making of machine snow.

Three of the four resort owners in Rhode Island listed 30 percent more days of skiing than in the previous season. The exception was the state reservation at Diamond Hill which lost money between a boost in lift fees and a fire which destroyed the base lodge and ski rental shop.

At Ski Valley in Cumberland, R.I., Fred T. Egan called the season "the best we have had in seven years." Pinetop in Escoheag and Yawgon Valley in Slocum marked up a "breakeven" season.
