Best Fest: Beast or Jammin'?

Killington’s Bear Mountain Mogul Challenge and Sugarloaf’s Reggae Fest dominate the East Coast slopeside party scene.

One of these days, this cold is going to break…that much we know. Also this: When it does, the 2015 spring skiing season promises to be one of the best ever.

From the Berkshires to Tuckerman Ravine, the Eastern snowpack remains in full lockdown mode…hardly a flake of snow has been lost since about Christmas, thanks to a freakishly stubborn weather pattern that keeps pumping arctic air and steady snowfall into the region while Western resorts suffer warm days and persistent drought.

Scene: Best Ski-Town Margs

Best Ski-Town Margs, Apres Ski
A margarita on a sunny deck is a ski-town rite of spring. Here’s a list of greats from our highly opinionated testers.

Cut fresh lime into slices. Rub the rim of a chilled glass with lime. Dip rim in coarse salt. In a shaker, add two ounces of tequila (preferably 100 percent agave), one ounce Cointreau, and one ounce fresh lime juice. Shake. Strain. Pour. Sip slopeside (with a satisfied smile) sometime in the spring.

Stowe is For Skiers

Now it has some of the East’s most lavish slopeside amenities. But to those who know it best, it’s still the hill that has no peer.

There’s one Eastern ski resort that’s better than all the rest. It’s got the best terrain, most efficient lifts, highest peak, rippingest skiers, richest history, raddest lift-served sidecountry, rowdiest nightlife, prettiest views, and best-looking women.

Anyway, that’s what Stowe skiers will tell you.

A Safer World for ACLs?

Can Knee Bindings Help Prevent Knee Injuries?
Blown knees are the bane of skiers, but a small Vermont-based binding company claims to have solved the problem.

With a sickening, distinctly audible “pop,” your season is over. Ahead lie months of recovery, usually involving expensive surgery. Send for a toboggan, and join the club of skiers who have torn anterior cruciate ligaments.
