It's On in the East: Deep Snow, and More Predicted

We caught up with Mad River Glen's Eric Friedman, one of the industry’s least bullshitty public relations guys, for his take on how good the skiing is. For fans of natural snow, now's the time.

Eric Friedman, publicist for Mad River Glen, a place that doesn’t really need more publicity, has the luxury of being able to say pretty much what he thinks—which is good, because he would anyway. So you’re tempted to actually believe him when he says this: “I think we have the best skiing North America right now.”

Yes, this is it, Eastern skiers: the snow conditions of which you dream, coming at a time when Western and Canadian resorts are mostly snow-starved.

A sampling of reports on Wednesday morning, Feb. 4:

Take an afternoon break this season at these new on-mountain hot spots.

• Garbo’s Grill is a new joint inside the Carleton Lodge, at base of Whistler Mountain, focusing on burgers with 20 topping choices, including sauces, cheeses, and veggies.

• Canyons Resort unveils the new, improved Cloud Dine at the top of the Dreamcatcher and Dreamscape quads. The 300-seat venue boasts a menu of made-to-order salads, sandwiches, and flatbread pizzas plus delicious pastries and coffee drinks.

The Two Faces of Sugarbush

Whether you fancy old-school skiing or sleek, modern resort life, this New England classic's got you covered.

The defining characteristic of Sugarbush is that it’s two mountains: Lincoln Peak—the original ’Bush—and Mt. Ellen, formerly Glen Ellen ski area. The two-mile Slidebrook Express high-speed quad connects the two, and there’s plenty to love about both, but their vibes and personalities are distinctly different. Lincoln Peak is sleek and polished, with full resort amenities; Mt. Ellen is a shut-up-and-ski, throwback kind of place.

Nipped at last week's World Championships, retiring Kearney battles gold-medalist Justine and the Dufour-Lapointe sisters.

Eastern skiers get one last chance to see an Eastern skiing legend in competition this weekend when the Freestyle World Cup makes a stop in Lake Placid.

Mogulist Hannah Kearney of Norwich, Vt., owner of a record eight World Championship medals and an Olympic gold, recently announced that she’ll retire from competitive skiing at the end of the season.
