The Adventure Skier: Northeast Retrospective
AKA Why This Winter is Going To Kick Ass
By Brian Mohr
As the nights cool and our thoughts turn to the long winter season ahead, it's worth reflecting visually on past seasons in the Northeast. While Northeast ski seasons are not well known for producing an especially deep snowpack or an abundance of deep powder days, the Northeast always comes through with its fair share of the goods. The trick is to prioritize the season's better moments, and be in the mountains, with skis on our feet, as they unravel - without fail. It can mean the difference between having a great season and having thoughts like, "That's it! I'm moving somewhere it really snows!". When everything lines up, however, it's hard to imagine living and skiing anywhere else...
