Closest Backcountry to Amherst, MA?
Moving there in the spring, no car. Do they even get enough snow? I've visited a couple times and saw some little mountains. Anyone got any clues?
Its living a life you want, versus living the life 'you're supposed to live'.... I feel really blessed to have the connection I have with skiing, and dont have that connection anywhere else in this world. Doing anything but skiing is abandoning myself and ignoring what I really value and what makes me feel alive. Feeling alive is more important to me than chasing ideals set out by people who don't even like their lives and who live an unexamined life. -lalalalaura
not really sure where amherst is but you're best bet for backcountry in new england is going to be in the white or green mountains in NH and VT not really sure on specific locations though. I could be wrong, but i'm almost positive there are no decent backcountry locations in MA
MA can get decent amounts of snow occasionally but you're not going to find any back country, unless you head up north more to Vermont / New Hampshire. I hate MA
Unrealistic talk is real talk
Mt Greylock is probably the closest "Backcountry" in the area. They have an old race trail on the east face, there's like 2000 vertical.
I line about 20 minutes away from Amherst. If it's a good year we can get a good amount of snow. And aa posted above the best backcountry you will get in MA is mt. Greylock.

The most, East Coast
I am from Amherst and they get a little snow but there is no good backcountry close.
