    Skiing Rag "Best Mtns in No. America"

    Lucky I get this mag for free. It arrived today. I think they were trying to be funny with the Northeast section but it wasn't funny. The other sections maybe had 1 category that was funny, the NE one was mostly bashing ski areas in the NE.
    Also getting old and they have made the print abnormally small so they could get in more ads. One 1/4 to 1/2 page of text, 1/2 page of pictures, then at least 1 full page ad.

    Didn't say I liked it. I never paid for it - it just comes free from going to the Boston Ski show.

    They broke it into sections of NA. So northern rockies, west coast, central rockies, So Rockies, NE maybe a couple of others.

    Hmm where's mine then? I don't usually get issues prior to the show.. although sometimes they toss me a couple issues back to back right after the show.

    I will say they had a good article breaking down many of Cannon's secret stashes and sidecountry last year. I've never skied Cannon but feel better prepared to spend my time wisely when I do go.

    The worst part of these "Northeast Skiing" lists, is that it's typically very obvious that the writer was born and raised in the west and has never spent a day skiing east of the Mississippi in his/her life.

    Sometimes the errors are so egregious it's embarrassingly obvious.

    While the others listed good things about places the NE part talked about best cluster Fuck - Saddleback. While calling Wildcat the best scenic they say but don't worry it is very tame. Of course there was some category bashing Burke and Jay. No mention of the cluster of Park City. There were others as well just don't have it in front of me right now.

    And yet forsaking the requisite mentions of small vertical, low snowfall totals and ice?

    My favorite is how people talk and talk about ice.
