Northmen Ski Slope
Caribou Ski Slope
Caribou, ME

1960's-Mid 1970's
Just a couple of listings on this one, it had a T-bar, slope, and trail.  The name changed from Northmen to Caribou Ski Slope around 1970.  They offered free skiing to local children which was a terrific idea!

Here's the Terraserver image of this ski area. It clearly shows the main slope, and a narrower trail on the left. Notice how bushes have grown in up and around the top of the main slope. It also appears that there are now base buildings remaining.
