Share this

Video from chieflg713 showing some pretty impressive skills to make it down the Old Bova Ski Area in Allegany State Park.  Originally this was the downhill ski area started in the 1930's as a hike up and ski down.  In the 1940's tow ropes were added and this perhaps became one of the first popular ski areas in Western New York.  Located in the Red House side of the Park.
