New Addition

Skiing, Now with Hot-Tub Bottle Service

Well, it’s that time again. The season where you—the North American wintersman—rapidly descend mountains on two heavily buffed blades. We figured it was probably best you knew just what new opportunities were out there on the mountains for you this year. Here’s a hint: hot tubs.

Advanced Hot-Tubbing at Beaver Creek
LEAVE IT TO BEAVER

Advanced Hot-Tubbing at Beaver Creek

What’s new: Reservable slopeside hot tubs with full bottle service rights and privileges, truffled popcorn and a dedicated waitress.
The endgame: The furthest frontiers of après comfort. And probably more than one time-machine joke.

Higher Ground at Mount Washington
GET LIFTED

Higher Ground at Mount Washington

What’s new: A 2,000-foot Doppelmayr T-bar lift to taller regions skiable for the first time. Also: a retro log cabin for between-runs fireplace warming, and new access to off-piste terrain.
The endgame: Less climb strain. You, totally refreshed for the rigors of log cabin life.

Red Mountain, Up One More Mountain
THE GREY

Red Mountain, Up One More Mountain

What’s new: Well, an entire new 1,000-acre mountain (the resort’s got a great mountain guy) accessible by snowmobile-bus combo vehicle. It’s called Grey Mountain.
The endgame: Ascending its heights for the first time, thus setting its first downhill record and planting a flag proclaiming it “[Your Name] Mountain.”

The Terrain Park at Smugglers’ Notch
RARE EARTH

The Terrain Park at Smugglers’ Notch

What’s new: A dedicated area for you to practice your log slides, heavy banks, rock-wall jumps, rails and quarter pipes.
The endgame: You as the official spokesman of Mountain Dew and the Winter X Games. Pretty rad.

Snowcatting Up Huckleberry Canyon
BERRY GOOD

Snowcatting Up Huckleberry Canyon

What’s new: Guided snowcat tours straight to the top of Huckleberry Canyon and fresh backcountry territory.
The endgame: No more long hikes to the gate. Maybe some badass avalanche-racing stories. Lots of opportunities to say the word “Huckleberry.”
