49 Degrees North has a long history, dating back to 1937 (see our History piece on 49 here):
Coupled with that history, they're getting some long deserved recognition having just been listed by The Clymb as one of the five most underrated ski areas in North America. http://blog.theclymb.com/out-there/5-of-the-most-underrated-ski-resorts-in-america/
So, big congrats to John and all the gang at 49N; very exciting!! We've been going there for years and recently did a piece that shows why 49N is so deserving, especially with the addition of Angel Peak. Check out this video and think about hitting them up if you're in the area.
Be sure to check out all the areas and operations we highlight on our Peak Travels page, linked in my signature line. We've got lots to look at!
