Dartmouth and Middlebury are two of the most-storied collegiate environments in the Northeast, in no small part for their excellence in outdoor athletics over the years. Each school touts its own ski area for students and staff to use and welcomes the public to come ski at a rate you’re not likely to find at other ski areas in Vermont and New Hampshire.
“It’s one of the few places where you can show up, rent your skis, buy a lift ticket, have a snack, and spend less than $100 per person,” Dartmouth Skiway general manager Mark Adamcyzk said. “And that’s pretty rare these days.”
Adamcyzk and Middlebury Snow Bowl director of skiing Mike Hussey joined New England Ski Journal Basecamp hosts Eric Wilbur and Mike Specian to discuss the ski areas’ importance in teaching skiers at the college level, as well as how each spot excels at making skiing an affordable family activity.
