New I Love Small Ski Areas Merch
You love small ski areas. Show that love. Mountain Gazette is excited to offer a new collection of hats, shirts, and hoodies that celebrate small ski areas.
Small ski areas have a long and rich history that dates back to the early days of skiing in North America. You're not here for a history lesson, but we will say that the Nansen Ski Club in Berlin, New Hampshire may have kicked the whole thing off in 1911. Heck yeah, New England.
And speaking of New England, we teamed up with Whaleback Mountain in New Hampshire and Magic Mountain in Vermont on two, new limited-edition hats. Each hat is available for 10 days. Once they're gone, they're gone.
Maybe it's a local resort you visited once or an out-of-the-way mom and pop you found in your travels around the States (or the world), either way you know the love of that tight-knit community that surrounds resorts tucked away from the crowds.
It's about the local characters that make the community fun, the laid-back feeling of a little aprés on a tailgate, and lift tickets that feel sanely priced. Show your love for the two-for-one night skiing and the friends racing a Tuesday night beer league in jeans (because they can). And because these spots often welcome families with open arms and much, much less chaos.
Like a vintage ski hat from your favorite spot, this gear keeps you feeling close to home. No plane tickets necessary.
Whaleback Mountain is a non-profit, community supported ski & snowboard area in New Hampshire's Upper Valley.
