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.

Benjamin Forthun Takes Pond Skimming to a Whole New Level

When it comes to pond skimming, there is a certain level of debauchery that is usually to be expected: silly costumes, ruckus cheers, and just a wee bit (or a lot) of beer. Norwegian skier Benjamin Forthun, however, has taken the pastime to a whole new level with his epic run at FONNA Glacier Ski Resort for the start of their summer season. Talk about crushing the game.

What Happens When Pro Big Wave Surfers Go Heli Boarding?

Skills translate across sports, don’t they? That’s exactly what Big Wave Surf champions Paige Alms and Billy Kemper set out to discover when they took a trip to Alaska’s Chugach Range to go heli-boarding. Lucky for them, pro snowboarders Robin Van Gyn and Leanne Pelosi, as well as Olympic gold medalist Julia Mancuso were there to share some knowledge. Sharing skills in the mountains is one of the best parts of being there, and these pros have a lot to share. The surfers learn and feed off the

Jeremy Jones, Sage and Tommy Moe on the Importance of Family Skiing for Father’s Day

There might be no greater joy in life than skiing/snowboarding with your family and passing on the love of riding to a new generation. And, chances are pretty high if you enjoy sliding down frozen water, your old man is the one who taught you how to do that. So call your dad today and tell him thanks: Without him, none of this would be possible.
