Ski resorts across New England have been pumping out the snow at every cold-enough opportunity. This weekend is a good chance to get your ski legs under you if you haven’t yet. A trip to the mountains always trumps a day fighting the crowds Christmas shopping at the mall.
A look across the New England snowscape shows that Sunday River has the lion’s share of terrain open, 32% with 41 trails and 190 acres for your skiing and riding pleasure. The River has even peppered in 16 terrain park features.
Killington and Stratton are not far behind with over 30 trails and 170 acres each. In New Hampshire, Loon leads the pack of the 12 ski areas open, Loon has 38% of its terrain open, 23 trails encompassing 155 acres.
I am heading to Okemo for some fresh made snow and a chance to demo new ski gear at the 4th annual December Super Demo. It is still early December, but the big dogs are open, 22 of New England’s ski resorts are ready and waiting with white carpet.
See you on the slopes.
