If you ski the Northeast more than occasionally, and you’re on Facebook more than occasionally, and you love skiing more than a normal amount, then you are probably a member of the Ski the East Facebook group. If you’re not, then you should be. Ski The East is just for us. It is, in a ski world where anyone outside of the region thinks of the Northeast as an afterthought, our safe space. You can rave about that surprise inch of fresh on your 1,000-foot local bump, post a GoPro vid of your skis scraping Catskills boilerplate after a refreeze, or detail your 12-layer kit for surviving a twenty-below January Saturday. No one is going to wonder why you bothered. We get it, we get each other, in a way someone spoiled by 500-inch seasons and mountains the size of Rhode Island just can’t.
