  • From the LaMoure County Museum Facebook page administrator, Sonya Albertson: "Here is what I know: the ski slope had a tow rope and a warming house. Parts of the facility were built by a local man - Norman Ellis. . . . The ski slope was located WSW of LaMoure. Norm Ellis not only built the ski area but ran it for many years. It was commissioned by the City of LaMoure Park Board. "
