I'm pretty sure I can speak about the skiing in Newfoundland as well as anybody. I'm 22 and have been skiing at Marble mountain for 17 years. I've been a 'newschooler' since the mid 90's, had the first pair of twins at the mountain, built countless jumps, skied my share of out of bonds stuff an hit up every comp I could have.
I'm not sure who you are A_Whelan
but I wouldn't totally agree. I think Marble is a great spot for the locals. No lift lines, cheap passes, occasional pow (some of the best in the east), but like it's been said, Marble will never be a destination. Too remote and costly for what you get. If I were on the mainland there are a number of other locations I would put before marble on my list. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate everytime I get to ski at marble (not very often in the last 3 years), but as soon as i'm done university i'm off to bigger and better things.
Yes there have been a number of crews come here. Level 1 had an awesome NF section in forward, i've been urban jibbing with a few from the meathead crew, and i'm sure a few more have been here. However, most film companies are looking for original locations and have a budget to get here. For most people, Newfoundland isn't the best bang for the buck in terms of a ski vacation
