Ski Resort Life

Is Red Mountain the New Jackson Hole?

Red Mountain Resort | Rossland BC
Red Mountain Resort, BC
This Canadian resort might be skidom’s best-kept secret. And with two new expansions, it’s also the biggest.

The “glasses” at Red Mountain’s first annual Beer Goggles Craft Brew Festival hold only three ounces. Which is, apparently, enough. Keri Bascetta, SKI’s staff photographer, and I are standing around in ski clothes in a party tent on a wood-chipped parking lot with, well, pretty much everyone within a 50-mile radius of the place, drinking tiny beers and laughing our butts off. We are freezing, but we don’t care. Snow has started to accumulate outside—a light dust that coats the plastic tent windows and picnic tables.

NASTAR Eastern Championships to Hit Okemo Mountain

Four-time Olympian AJ Kitt will be at Okemo as competitors battle to qualify for Nastar Nationals in Aspen, CO.

Think you’re faster than Ted Ligety? Of course you don't. But if you want to get a sense of how much faster he is, jump in the NASTAR course at your local hill. Ted won’t be there. But he raced against a guy who raced against a guy who will be there.

Mountains of Money

Jay Peak Resort | Jay Peak Vermont
Jay Peak has long been loved for its above-average snowfall. Now a blizzard of foreign capital has transformed it into a four-season wonderland. And the bottom line? Jobs where they’re needed most.

Dribs and drabs. Some snow guns here, a new groomer there, fresh carpet for the base-lodge bar...

Tip Sheet: Highland Bowl, Colo.

This Aspen Highlands extreme terrain is a rite of passage for any serious skier. Here’s how to do it well.

Life in an Orange Bubble

Life in an Orange Bubble
Okemo's new Sunburst enclosed sixpack has heated seats. Sign of the Apocalypse? Or just a sensible way to beat the Vermont winter cold?

Is this really how pampered we’ve become? Eastern skiers, after all, always prided themselves on being a little hardier than the rest. Rain, wind, frigid temps, and brutally cold lift rides—always just part of the experience.

Now Okemo and Leitner-Poma have teamed up to bring us…what…the ultimate high-speed sixpack for wussies, with heated seats to warm our buns and an orange-tinted bubble enclosure to keep out the wind, rain, and good old New England sleet.

2015 Resort Survey Comments Exposed

We asked you for your honest feedback about resorts. Here are some off-the-wall comments.

When readers fill out the resort survey to rank the best resorts in North America, most have great things to say. However, not everyone likes a given resort. We get thousands and thousands of comments, and, after sorting through all of them, here are some of the funny/odd/interesting ones. But because we don’t like to hurt feelings, we kept the resort names out of it.

“Not for urban types.”

These Colorado resorts turned millions of acres of diseased pines into something uniquely beautiful.

Who knew a quarter-inch-long beetle could cause so much destruction? The nefarious mountain pine beetle, responsible for infesting roughly 3.4 million acres of lodgepole pines in the Colorado Rockies, has left behind diseased mountainsides nationwide that would collectively cover the state of Connecticut.
