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.

Aspen Avalanche Could be a ‘300-year event’

The mile-wide avalanche that happened in Aspen Highlands on March 9th certainly felt out of the norm. It was a nightmare that released naturally, charging over 3000 feet and destroying trees like toothpicks as it piled into the Conundrum Creek Valley.

We'll start with a quick refresh on skiing etiquette: Downhill skiers have the right of way. Yes, it's super annoying when you're arcing some turns down a groomer and all of a sudden rental-boots-over-jeans-guy makes an erratic 90+ degree swerve into your fall line. However, it's still your responsibility to avoid crashing into him. Related: Man Survives for Weeks on Saltine Sandwiches Why didn't the cameraman spot his buddy's landing?

Skiing the Utah Desert Is a One-of-a-Kind Experience

Ever since Ian and Neil Provo showed off their backyard in their iconic short film , the prospect of skiing and snowboarding among the red dirt of southern Utah has been high on the list. Of course, the conditions required for such an adventure are about as rare as finding first tracks down Cody Peak these days, but skiers Rob Aseltine, Willie Nelson, and Dan Rihm made it happen during a recent storm cycle.
