Penobscot Bay Pilot’s new wayback machine

Throwback Thursday

Throwing one back to the Boomers today...with a little hint. This goes along with last week’s Throwback Thursday post. What is this building and where did it used to sit?

Answer: This was the Snow Bowl Lodge. It sat at the NW end of Hosmer Pond. In 1967, the base lodge burned down, side tracking a multi-year expansion plan. A snowmaking installation was delayed so that a new A frame lodge could be constructed in 1968.
