On the way to Mt. Washington, Ben decides to finally make a go at backcountry location in Maine that he’s been scoping from the road. Most Maine woods are an impenetrable thicket, but Ben found a zone with wide open glades… he just had to wait for the right storm to fill it in.
Music in this episode:
Sofa Surfers – “See the Light”
Blood Cultures – “Indian Summer”
Blue States – “Red and Shine”
About The “Working For The Weekend” Series:
Longtime Meathead Films veteran, Ben Leoni, is now living in Portland, Maine, holding down a career and the daily office grind. In between piles of paperwork, he dreams of his weekends skiing in the mountains. Last season he made those dreams a reality.
Ben spent the winter of 2013 skiing the Northeast without the aid of chairlifts. Showcasing legendary backcountry zones as well as hidden gems around New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine, “Working For The Weekend” is a groundbreaking new web series and the first of its kind in the region. From deep powder to treacherous ice, Ben and his crew of friends embody the “earn your turns” mantra for the East Coast.
