It tracked pretty far west, up into Southern Vermont, but only a few inches. Jiminy was originally only supposed to get 1-2 inches, but got it a lot heavier. Plus snow-making. And there is a...

NH might have been the place to go. I might even hit Wachusett. The storm tracked a lot farther west than we were initially told. DAMMIT. We called off a Pico trip for today because it looked like it...

I've only made it out once so far. We've got cheap ski club tix for Pico and Killington for the weekend, and we might go anyway. Pico claims to have missed the rain and will re-start snowmaking, but...

Northstar is touristy and pricey, but judging from your stated ability level, and what you're looking for, I think you'd have the most fun there. It is much more like an east coast mountain, in that...

Judging by the weather, this is NOT the week to make your first trip to Mt. Snow. Conditions aren't good, they're actually closing trails instead of opening up new ones. It will be a mess, and it's...

It's not the snowfall. There is no base. There should be several feet of snow on the ground already, man-made or natural, in order for there still to be snow in March. Many (most) mountains still...

Shreddin' the Shrubbery.

The toy snowboarders I got for Christmas were stoked that we finally got some snow up here! (I clearly have too much time on my hands).

I know it sounds knit-picky to others, because we regularly drop the "beach" from Daytona Beach, because the mainland and the barrier island there are the same town. There is no "Daytona," unless...

I'm in Eastern Connecticut, out near ECSU and UConn. We were supposed to get a dusting, but wound up getting some of the heaviest snow in the state, well over a foot. Crazy. But absolutely NOTHING at...

And they're all right near each other (okay, Jay is bit of a haul, but not too bad). The Waterbury Best Western is right at the end of the highway exit ramp, and equidistant between Stowe, Sugarbush...

The "top" of Stowe isn't really even the top. The gondola stops at the treeline, then there is another couple hundred feet to go to the very top. You gotta be serious to make that hike, but I've seen...

This is a shot of Kelly and my friend Wayne, from way back in the day. We used it as a subscription ad for an East Coast surf mag I was publishing. It was shot in my office, we hung a paper tarp over...

Considering how beat up I feel after my first day snowboarding this season, I'm kinda liking the idea of getting a nice longboard and working the waves again. I think drowning hurts less.

I've known Kelly since he was a tiny lad. He's the mellowest guy ever. You dropped in on him? He gets more waves than any of us would know what to do with, so what? No million dollars was at stake. I...

One of my most memorable days was riding a hurricane swell in Cocoa Beach. Big overhead barrels, but otherwise massive washing-machine slop. One of those days where you paddle in at 16th St, and get...

Catamount was AWESOME today.

Not sure what the weekend storm will do, other than draw all the New Yorkers up north. So we hit Catamount today. $20 tix Monday and Thursday. It was PERFECT. Packed powder, zero people. Most runs...
