Whether you are finding it on those lingering strips of snow at your favorite ski area, or along the snow-filled edge of an alpine ridge in New Hampshire’s White Mountains or Quebec’s Monts McGerrigle, The Dirty Corn is hard to miss right now. And that’s okay. For one thing, The Dirty Corn is often a [...]
According to our ski log, snow has now fallen from the heavens every day or night for twenty straight days over AdventureSkier headquarters in Vermont. We cannot remember the last time this has happened, and it is truly reassuring to know that winter is not broken. No doubt, we are in the midst of one [...]
While it’s still officially fall for a nearly another week, a wintry forecast here for the mountains of the Northeast (like the one depicted here, for north-central VT) is a sight for sore skiers’ eyes. And while this is still just a forecast (Courtesy: NWS), it is one of many that have been trending toward [...]
Thanks to fresh snow falling across the highest elevations of the Northeast on Sunday night, snow sliders enjoyed some of their first turns of the season on Monday. And while Old Man Winter welcomed us back with only a few inches of snow at the highest elevations (4-6″ atop the porch railing of a cabin [...]
It won’t be long now before the first solid nor’easter of the season pulls enough cold air down from the north and let’s the snow fly across our northeastern mountains. Over the past decade, this scenario has consistently played out by mid to late October in the Northeast, and when we are lucky, the cold [...]
Let’s hope so…because by the looks of this giant mutant heirloom beauty, we’re in for one heck of a snowy winter. Perhaps this is how the folks at the Farmer’s Almanac come up with their latest predictions for the Northeast. Hmmm… -Brian Follow this LINK to “Like” AdventureSkier.com on Facebook. Thanks!
Maybe it’s all the heat… Our dreams lately have been filled with imaginary ski adventures among friends, seemingly endless backcountry descents and the cold and refreshing sensations that accompany deep powder snow. It must be the heat… – Brian Follow this LINK to “Like” AdventureSkier.com on Facebook. Thanks!
Early last week, Scott Braaten, the snow reporter for Vermont’sStowe Mountain Resort spotted this lonesome chunk of snow in Vermont’s Green Mountains. It was likely one of the very last remnants of the incredible winter of 2010-11. Unlike the deep ravines of New Hampshire’s Presidential Range, Vermont’s mountains rarely harbor snow into July. And given [...]
As much as it is always a wee-bit sad to see our deep and powder-coated snow pack at the mercy of the warm air upon the northeast right now, we have much to celebrate. First, leading up to this 36-hour warm up, conditions off-piste and in the backountry, especially in sheltered higher elevation zones, have [...]
Just a week after winter had us more tempted to play pond hockey than to go skiing, we are once again up to our necks in snow. It suddenly seems as though all that “thin cover” skiing we’ve endured so far this season has been worth it after all. Here’s our good buddy Ian Forgays [...]
“Damaging Winds” is the current forecast for the summit of New Hampshire’s Mount Washington today and tomorrow. There’s nothing like a 145mph wind gust to start off your day in late November! This cold, northwesterly flow of air comes in advance of another moisture-laden, low-pressure system that should start to drop some frozen precip (snow?) [...]
The mountains of the northeast picked up anywhere between 2-12″+ between Friday afternoon and Sunday evening… Locally here in the Greens, we enjoyed some of the creamiest powder snow we’ve come across in a while, and on Sunday afternoon, we felt like we were right back to mid winter.
