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.

Candide Thovex Again Proves He Doesn’t Need Snow to Rip

Candide Thovex Again Proves He Doesn’t Need Snow to Rip

Writing about Candide Thovex's skiing, at a certain point, becomes exhausting. The Flying Frenchman's style is so otherworldly, so prone to inducing hyperbole, that eventually you run out of things to say about it. He accomplishes things on two planks beyond the realm of what most would think is humanly possible, and trying to produce some string of words to effectively describe it is like attempting to ice skate uphill.  So sit back and enjoy the five minutes of magic Thovex and Audi cooked

Atomic Brings it Back to the ‘80s With Latest Edit

The fine folks at Atomic graced us with a little mini-edit on Friday titled "Digital Style | Utah," that was a modern-day homage to ski movies of the '80s, combining the grainy footage and overly contrasted colors of yesteryear with the progressive skiing of today. So watch as Nicky Keefer, Mitchell Brower, Jonah Williams and our good friend Tim Durtschi tear it up to the musical stylings of Sebastian Gampl, then pull out your old Walkmans and reminisce about the era that gave us Oh, and
