Skiing In New Jersey?

I found Liz's book when researching the Craigmeur ski area, one of the first ski areas that I went to when learning the sport in the early 70s. Although Craigmeur closed in 1998, it was the first ski area in New Jersey with a rope tow and possibly the second ski area in the country to have one. There were many other ski areas in New Jersey, and this book covers them all. For anyone interested in skiing, this book is a must read. It is hard to believe that there are only two ski areas left in the state.

An interesting history of skiing and ski areas in NJ. Some right around the corner from where I live. Who would have known. The author has done a good job putting together little write-ups on over 30 areas that were once scattered throughout the state, most of which are now long gone.

If you live in New Jersey and love skiing this will be an interesting book for you. The author has gone to great lengths to research all of the ski areas that have been and some that are still found in New Jersey. I enjoyed the interviews with the people that were instrumental in founding the different areas and others who worked at each area. This book is full of local history.

Poorly written with a lack of any real in depth information; many passages read like Ms. Holste was writing thoughts as they came into her head. The author's research appears to be very superficial; to report that something began "around" a certain year is not good enough for non-fiction. Chapters are comprised of a series of loosely related simple sentences with extra spaces between what serve as paragraphs (often two or three sentences) in an obvious attempt to flesh out the book.

This seems like a very rough first draft. A good editor would have been helpful. Terribly over-priced for what you get.
