History: Mount Lugo opened in 1940 with a single rope tow with a
motor used from a vehicle. The area offered 150 feet of vertical over 173
skiable acres of terrain. Guests were carried from the road to the base of
the tow using a horse drawn sled. Unfortunately, the ski area was a victim
to gas rationing taking place in 1942 and later closed. Remnants of the
tow's motor are still visible in the park today.
Directions: Located in the Jefferson County Open Space park, Meyer
Ranch. The area is on the North face of Mt. Legault
