Hello! My name is Adrienne, 28 years old, live near Boston, MA.
Grew up skiing at Waterville Valley (NH)....started at age 7 and took a break when I went off to college. I think my dad, who was born in southern Italy and then after moving to the US grew up in the inner city, wanted to expose my siblings and I to anything and everything he never experienced as a kid! Thus began our many days out of school to ski in fresh now, weekend ski trips, and forays to NH!
After a 7 year break, my boyfriend convinced me to start skiing again! We mostly went to Okemo and Gunstock, but this year we purchased "The Max Pass". Not sure how I feel about it!
Recently posted about my new found anxiety on the slopes. Looking forward to conquering my fears and making skiing a pivotal part of my life again. As a child, it was all I thought about! Especially looking forward to planning far flung ski trips, using it as a way to get through long winters, and as a way to bond with people! Definitely think it increases my quality of life. Love being out in the fresh air and seeing stunning views from the mountain....!
Might even try to organize some ski trips for the kids at the high school where I teach.
My favorite mountains have to be Bolton Valley and Pico, in VT, and Cannon in NH. Just love the vibes.
Cheers from Massachusetts!
Welcome to EpicSki! Have you noticed any of the videos by @ralba about Pico? I bet you would enjoy skiing with his family.
