Winter reached an unforgettable crescendo over the weekend after 10-20″+ of perfect-density powder snow piled up in the preceding 48 hours across many high elevation Northeastern locales. In the most snow-catching and wind-loaded drainages and gulleys, the snow was nearly bottomless…and blower – billowing well overhead and blinding anyone following behind you. Here’s a quick …

It kicked off with up to 6″ of fresh fluff in many locations last Sunday morning (3/2), enough to finally cover and cushion (to varying degrees) the lingering Feb 21 rain crust off-piste.

Photo of the Week: 365 Days Ago

We made our first turns of the season (on snow) on October 8th last year, and another blast of higher-elevation snow lured us out again, on October 12th. And while the fresh snow cover was ultra-thin, and the freshly fallen leaves at lower elevations skied even better, another ski season had arrived. It wasn’t for …
