seancullenPowder Mountain Utah. You can always get freshies at this place whole mountain feels like an OB trip untouched terrain and basically no one else on the mountain
*DOGmy buddy has some family that live in a small town give or take 30/20 minutes outside of nelson and they are pretty chill so me and him where planning to head up there sometime this season, and obviously ski whitewater. I have never been there, whats it like??
TheSmokinLMan I love squaw. More or less meant like, it's not the hill that throws out major ski edits or anything. Its top 3 of my fav mtns.
dan4060Historically Squaw is probably the most filmed ski area in the U.S. It was featured in Tight Loose (TGR's from this year) and it will be in the MSP film from this year. You might not see park edits coming from there, but honestly who gives fuck. There are also plenty of edits on Unofficial and other places that come from Squaw, people skiing some of the best big mountain terrain out there. Do you only look at edits from the park?
BASEDJAHbest tree skiing I've ever done, tons of pow, few people, easy access side country, chill vibe. It's a super playful mountain; there's always something to take air off.
PA: 7 Springs (Big Boulder is a close second but I'm biased)
Ohio: This state sucks ass. Don't ski here
New York: Whiteface (Lake Placid is a dope town too)
New Hampshire: Gunstock
West Virginia: Silvercreek. Way better than Snowshoe.
voy10Are silvercreeks parks really better? I’ve heard a lot of good things from snowshoe. I might go down to snowshoe with my dad this winter while he’s working down there.
DIRTYBUBBLEIf silvercreek is fully open or close to it, then they usually have a way better setup than snowshoe. Last time I was there (2014-15 season) their big park was better than the alley. Their jumps are really fucking weird though. But they have some really sick rails to make up for it.
voy10What’s up with the jumps?
Park_RangerEverything about that place is facade created in corporate marketing meetings, with the goal being to get people from all over the world to come and rent skis so that the bottom line can be driven up for wall street. Enjoy!
DIRTYBUBBLEThey have no lips so it's basically just like hitting a 10 foot drop. Apparently the same guy who does their bike park shapes the jumps
voy10So who should you say has a better rail setup? I never do jumps lol
