Magic shines most when the pow falls and this week it was at its very best... epic! Runs that rarely open, Magician and Slide of Hans, both double blacks, were knee deep in pow and absolutely awesome. Talisman and Sorcerer were just giddy fun... Like Mad River Glen they don't really groom the blacks so on the deep powder days, skip Stratton and Okemo and head here... fresh tracks abound... you won't regret it. The glades also great too.

On a non-pow day, it's your typical old style New England resort, tiny parking lot, old, slow chairs with local friendly staff, most of whom are old timers... no J1 visas here. Always family friendly... it's just plain fun.
