  • Racing footage

    This is how short a race run at Nashoba is, a smidge shorter than 30 seconds. Not a great run, but not bad either http://instagram.com/p/ydThRKN8Ej/ http://instagram.com/p/ydTqFst8Ev/ Any of you guys race a lot? If you have film post it here! Sent from my iPhone using AlpineZone

    Date(s) Skied: 1/29 Resort or Ski Area: Plattekill Conditions: Wide runs groomed or partially groomed. Both groomed and ungroomed were soft and not icy. Trip Report: $20 lift ticket day.

  • Anyone checked a bag on an airplane with beer in it?

    I'm heading to Seattle next week and one of my coworkers is a huge IPA fan. Was going to bring a couple cans of Lawson's Sip of Sunshine IPA as it obviously can't be had on the West Coast. Figured I could probably slip it in my luggage or would they just take it if they inspected it? I'm also…

  • Cannon 01/28/15

    I was excited to get to Cannon with report 10-12 inches of fresh snow. Unfortunately, I had to attend a meeting in the morning and could not get there until 12.

There’s a 4 mile multipurpose dirt road trail around the lake and miles of other trails into the woods. In winter most of these trails are snowmobile trails and I stay off of them. However, up Tower Hill…

  • Advice on having a baby and balancing skiing

    Hello, Any dads or moms out there have advice about balancing skiing with pregnancy and having a baby? As a husband should I stop skiing? My wife is sort of into skiing, a lot of people I talk to say they take 2-3 years off of skiing when having their first kid. What are your experiences? Thanks all for your…

  • Say thanks to the lifties

    I think that the lift attendants are one of the most underappreciated employees of a ski area. While many of their duties go under the radar, like safety checks, preparing ramps and more; most of us have as our primary interaction: making sure chairs (Gondola cars, etc.) go up full when there is a lift line; and to hold back…

  • NW Connecticut beginner/intermediate mountain?

    Need some real world information about the small hills in NW Connecticut. I have a friend and her family that wants to do their 2-3 times a year skiing. They're green/blue skiers. I've never skied in Connecticut. I know it's no big mountain skiing but mostly smaller places catering more to families. Right now, all the mountains in that areas…
