Steeper lines characterized by narrow drainages, rocky ledges and frozen waterfalls are in rare form right now, and …

It’s a sweet time to be sliding around on snow in the Northeast high country, especially in the areas that scored a solid 20-30″+ of right-side-up, cream-topped snow last week – as illustrated by the photo above. Even in many low elevation areas, it feels more like late February, than mid December, out there. Off-piste …
