Abstract

The author talks about why he prefers skiing the smaller ski hills in Maine to the larger resorts. Not only are they cheaper, but because “you feel like you’re skiing in a place where actual people live and work, where the fate of the mountain and the town are inextricably intertwined” and argues why it is important to ski these places. Article includes an inset on three Maine companies that hand-craft high performance skis and an inset on how smaller lifts have been able to find ways to stay open, in spite of the industry trend to consolidate the larger resorts.
