The East Coast is the Best Place to Ski Right Now

I never thought I would say this but the East Coast might be the best place to ski in the lower 48. With major storms hammering the area, the skiing is all time. This video from Adam Wheeler shows a classic pow day at Mad River Glen. Hardwood glades, plenty of snow, some Heady Topper, and the single chair seems like a pretty good way to spend the weekend. Ski it while you can East Coasters.  

Honestly, the past couple seasons have been great out here! I just moved back from the Tahoe area two years ago and I feel awful for my friends back there. They’ve barely gotten any snow since 2009.

    Agreed, I have spent the past four years in northern vt and except for the winter of 2012 I have had a great time.

      Hell yeah - looking forward to another epic season out east - enjoy, Jonathan!

Yes, East Coast or West Coast skiing soft snow is super fun…some years certain places get lucky, and I am stoked to be on the East Coast for our lucky year! To bad Boston doesn’t have big mountains to slide on!! See you out there!

    Adam - if I could post photos here I would - but I live in Revere and we next to this 30-40 foot cliff - and some dude dropped it yesterday - IT WAS PHENOMENAL. HA.

      imgur.com - and post the link!

      I have relatives from the North Shore and would love to see an image of that!!

        Lemme know if this works: http://imgur.com/aZxrIzA

        Not seeing my comment post - trying one more time.  http://imgur.com/aZxrIzA

          DUDE - AWESOME! Thnx for sharing man!

            haha - nice!  no problem!

Would have expected it to be deeper with all that snow I thought the EC got.

    It gets skied…. that and its been a winter recently of tons of small accumulations. No real big dumps at the mountains per se, just consistently snowy.

^ For sure… Looks like great skiing and coverage.

​Video: We’re Stoked That Audi Nines Is Back For 2021

Every year come spring, we love to see some of the world’s best freestyle riders get together atop a glacier in the Alps to ski and ride a custom-built terrain park that’s straight from their wildest dreams. The 2021 Audi Nines presented by Falken is officially underway in snowy Crans-Montana, Valais, Switzerland, and the course looks absolutely insane! Check out a POV preview of the course with Halldór Helgason, Jesper Tjäder, Boris Mouton, and Nico Porteous. Over the next few days, we’ll be

Inside the Mind of Sam Kuch

I've never watched any  footage of Sam Kuch skiing and thought "yeah that was cool, I guess?" Plain and simple, the dude throws down. Just a few short years ago, Kuch was working construction and living the ski bum life up in BC. After being discovered as a master of the planks, Kuch skyrocketed his way to being one of the best freeskiers in the game. Whether he's dropping pillows or hucking threes off of cliffs, there's no shortage of style from Kuch. This short film from Arc'teryx takes

As winter backcountry users, we’re already pretty concerned about our environment, because keeping it healthy is integral to keeping our playgrounds around for as long as possible. While we might be largely focused on issues like climate change, there’s a lot more to environmental stewardship than we might think. One of those things - one that’s particularly important in our local playground of the Tetons - is protecting the area’s bighorn sheep population. Denizens of the Steep explores the
