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.

​The Soundtrack of Shred: A Brief History of ODESZA & TGR

What’s the first band that comes to mind when you think about the TGR’S films? A few might come to mind, but if you really sit down and crunch the numbers, the answer might surprise you. The electronic duo, ODESZA, and Teton Gravity Research have a long standing relationship. One might say it all began after a night at the Mangy Moose in 2014, but Jackson local and ODESZA manager Adam Foley said that it’s been a thing of fate for the two powerhouses to collaborate since the conception of

​VIDEO: Step Into the Mind of Michael “Bird” Shaffer

We’ve seen a lot from steep skiing and speed flying superstar Michael Bird Shaffer over the last few years – whether it’s exploits high in the mountains of Chamonix, or skiing scary lines in the North Cascades. But his story is pretty different from most who roam this earth.  From Black Crows: Born into an atypical family, a fighter pilot father who left everything behind to follow his wife to a hippie project in the hills of Washington, Michael Shaffer was raised free and happy, close to
