Red Lady Bowl

Red Lady Bowl is wide open bowl skiing at its finest.  You can either drop in on the eastern slopes before reaching the summit, or the south slopes from the summit proper.  The east side often gets wind-loaded, while the south side is generally relatively safer.  Don't be fooled, though, with a slope angle right around 38 degrees this bowl can be very avalanche prone, and although it gets a lot of traffic, should only be skied during stable periods.  The southern face of the bowl will begin consolidating earlier on in the year than other aspects, so this can make for a fantastic late winter/early spring run if you're lucky enough to catch it on a powder morning.  After skiing the main bowl, you'll follow a river drainage back to the trailhead.  Keep an eye out for fun little kickers on the sides of the drainage.

Details

There are some rolling hills, but not a lot of steep lines in massachusetts.  There is more touring, and some lower angle stuff. There are a couple of older ski areas in western and central mass.  It is generally not very crowded, and you might run into a couple of snowshoers.

How to Get There

Massachusetts is located in New England, surrounded by New York, New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut, and Rhode Island.  The Mass Pike and Route 2 head East/West, and 95, 395, and 495 run N/South.  Some of the approaches are longer than others, depending on where you are going.
