With roots dating back to the 1800s, Big Boulder Ski Area was spawned from Lehigh Coal and Navigation. The founding fathers of the Company were Josiah White and Erskine Hazzard who pioneered anthracite coal mining and played a significant role in the Industrial Revolution. These two entrepreneurs created the world's first iron wire suspension bridge; and then went on to create an effective navigation system, hydrostatic locks, to transport large amounts of coal to Philadelphia.
