Not Done Yet: Boyne Blows Spring Snow at Eastern Resorts

Not Done Yet: Boyne Blows Spring Snow at Eastern Resorts
Sunday River Snowmaking
Snow guns are turned back on at Sugarloaf, Sunday River and Loon—because spring skiing should be a right, not a privilege.

SKI Mag’s East Coast staff needed to squeeze in a trip to Sugarloaf before the lifts close this spring. Running out of both time and snow, we were nervous, but thanks to an unprecedented initiative by Boyne Resorts’ three New England resorts, we’re in luck.

 Michigan-based Boyne announced last week that it had turned the snow guns back on for a late-season burst that ensures good spring conditions at Sugarloaf, Sunday River and Loon Mountain. Good for them. (See the press release below.)

Loon Mountain, NH

A White Mountain beauty heralds the Northeast's largest expansion in almost a quarter-century.

Approaching Loon, discerning skiers instinctively rubberneck the steep cleft of Franconia Notch in New Hampshire's rugged White Mountains. Some eye the stark white slide paths on Liberty and Lafayette peaks, wondering if they're skiable. More reasonable types look for remnants of the Old Man of the Mountain, a rock formation that succumbed to gravity a few years back.

2003 Number 20 Resort in the East: Waterville Valley, N.H

Features

Listen closely to the mantra of Waterville Valley's staff, and you'll hear what the resort is all about: "Cool, easy and playful." Waterville may not have the urban vibe of nearby sister-resort Loon or the blood-and-guts steeps of its big-mountain neighbor Cannon, but it does have something that's hard to find in today's ski world: a multi-generational soul.
