History: Originally in the common area of this subdivision a private (for subdivision home owners) ski hill with rope tow was planned.  The ski hill was cleared and graded, but due to cost and liability issues the rope tow was never installed.  The hill was used for many years as a sledding hill.  But now it is mostly overgrown with alders.
