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.”

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.
