Since launching our Periodic Table of Ski Areas series, we have had numerous requests for different States, Providences and Territories to be added to the series. While we’ve done a total of seven areas, all of the prints have been located on the West Coast of North America.
Today, we’re excited to announce not only one, but two, Eastern States: The Periodic Table of Ski Areas: Vermont and New Hampshire.
We’ve wanted to do an East coast series of prints for quite some time now. In truth, the limitation has been on the variety and quantity of areas in the Northeast. Unlike the West Coast areas where mega resorts tend to dominate the majority of the ski areas in a particular region, the East Coast contains dozens if not hundreds of smaller areas that are mostly unknown.
Creating a print of just “ski resorts” similar to our Colorado or California print would have led to the creation of another regional print as several states don’t have enough resorts to justify one print. However, some of the areas we’ve identified shouldn’t be included on a print due to legal restrictions, ownership status or general membership limitations. As such, we had to make some decisions to bring create these prints.
To complicate matters further, what do you do for areas that are not officially ski areas but are well known ski spots? Include them! Yes – fans of Tuckerman, we’ve made sure your favorite glacial cirque was included on our NH print.
Despite the challenges we had in bringing these prints to you, we’re very excited to finally be able to release these two prints. Expect more East Coast prints in the future.
P.S. Did you know that New York alone has 50+ ski areas? Like we said, we've been doing research...

While we included several “private” areas in the prints, they are large/well known enough areas to be included (i.e. Hermitage). Several of these smaller and private ski areas are only available for “friends and family” or are capped at a very small member limit (some are capped at < 50 members). These are not open to the general public. While we have information on them, we excluded them from the prints. We are happy to include them in future print versions only if contacted and approved by the owners of these areas.
About the Series:
The Periodic Table of Ski Resorts/Areas is an “alpine-off-shoot” of one of the artist’s prior works, the Periodic Table of White Mountain 4000-Footers. This particular print series brings a data-oriented approach to different ski regions by packing incredible and extensive detail about each ski area into a beautifully designed 24” x 18” poster.
Each individual box contains information on a particular ski area’s vertical rise, base and summit elevations, average amount of snowfall, trail difficulty, number of runs, number of lifts, and available indicators for night skiing, artificial snowmaking, terrain parks and Nordic (XC) skiing.
The Periodic Table of Ski Areas: Vermont print uses current data from the 2020-2021 season and features 29 ski resorts and areas.
The Periodic Table of Ski Areas: New Hampshire print uses current data from the 2020-2021 season and features 31 ski resorts and areas.
The 24” x 18” poster is printed on high quality 10.3mm thick Epson Enhanced Matte Paper using Epson UltraChrome HDR ink-jet technology.
