The East is Skiing Great, Thanks for Asking

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Skied 4 days out of the past 7 at Gore Mtn. NY.  With two big snow storms since Christmas, conditions are absolutely fantastic.  Gore had 100% of its terrain open today, including all of its glades.  I was skiing through powder that was above my kneecap in the woods yesterday. 


All in all, a great end to 2012 and a fantastic beginning to 2013.  Many of the NY, VT, NH and Maine ski areas that are north of Albany, NY are experiencing similarly good conditions.


After a slow start, this is definitely looking like a great winter to Ski the East!

I have been at Middlebury College Snowbowl for 20 years and we have never had all lifts and trails open for Xmas week until this year. What a week to be out skiing here in the east. One of our snowboard instructors was telling me yesterday that she rode a different line each time she went into our glades and I know that is a huge change from just 5 years ago. Now we are boundary to boundary and with all this snow so much stuff is open it is hard to sample it all. Hope everyone had a great Xmas week and it continues right thru to April.

Stowe is fantastic right now... Haven't seen this much snow on New Years in a very long time!! Hoping this weather pattern keeps up!

My season's pass paid for itself before 2012 ended. Perfect night skiing on New Year's Eve was a nice bonus. It's been beautiful.

So glad I pulled the trigger on a pass this season.  Sugarbush has been excellent.  Making a lot of mental notes for the East Coast Gathering later this year.
