Skiers prepared to take to the slopes at Ski Butler in the General Butler State Resort Park on the first weekend of skiing on January 12, 1985. Located in Carroll County near the county seat of Carrollton, the park once operated as KentuckyÕs first and only ski resort, Ski Butler. It opened in 1982 but was forced to shut down in the mid-'90s because of the difficulty in maintaining snow as well as other issues. Photo by Charles Bertram | Staff
