Behind the scenes – East Coast

For our western-based crew who have been suffering unseasonably warm temps, Friday’s arrival in Vermont felt especially cold.  Regardless, they forged on and arrived at Mad River Glen with Bob Brown to get down to the roots of east coast skiing.  Two days was all they could afford before moving along on their journey, but they made the best of their time around the mountain with the help of some talented local youngsters.  Our crew has moved on to Loon Mountain in search of warmer weather and pristine park features en route to their final destination, Sunday River, for the annual Dumont Cup.  Stay tuned for more!
