    Ski Sundown was known as Satan’s Ridge before it was purchased in 1969.

    Thanks, Raph! This is true… and better yet, two more Tunxis Trail hikes and I will walk right down Satan’s Ridge. (This area is just north of Satan’s Kingdom.)

    From Ski Sundown’s site:

    1969: Channing Murdock, founder and president of Butternut Basin in Great Barrington, Massachusetts buys the abandoned Satan’s Ridge Ski Area area in the summer of 1969 and renames it Ski Sundown.

    The 3rd smallest state has made it twice to the RSOE EDIS emergency and disaster global information map today, 1/15/13 – once for a suspected arson, and also for a fire on an airplane. After Newtown, I was thinking, yep, he’s there. Need some deliverance ministries there folks. Almost, almost makes me glad I’m in PA. This is an interesting website – thanks!

    The Devil’s Oven is in Devil’s Hopyard S.P. It’s a little cave.
