TV, Movies, Posters

Egan Entertainment Network specializes in sports programming with focus on skiing. Egan Entertainment Network provides production services for Ski Press Television

Speaking of skiing movies, Warren Miller set up a standard in this industry nitch. His first film was shot in 1950 and he continued by making one film each year since then.

The best place to get skiing posters for free is at skiing expos (see the section 'Racing, Events' above). There, one can usually find map-like posters, famous racer photos, etc.

Shops, Out-of-Resort Rentals

Well, there are so many of them in the area. Just a few of them are listed below:
Ski Market
Joe Jones Ski and Snowboard
Ski & Snowboard Mart
You can find many more shops at: SkiSite - New Hampshire Ski and Snowboard Shops

Note that many shops have skiing equipment for rent. Besides, there are rental shops outside of ski resorts. These shops usually offer better rental deals, and they may have a better gear selection than ski resort rentals. For ski demos, they are the places to go. These shops normally do not charge for an extra day if you rent late in the afternoon. Here are a few examples of such rental shops:
The Great American Ski Renting Company
Village Ski and Snowboard

New Hamphire Junior Skiing Links

Ski Museum - located at the base of Cannon Mountain
Kids Ski New Hampshire
Snow Monsters

Another New England skiing destination: Sunday River

Park City including
2004 World Superpipe Championship Photos         Park City Mountain Photos         The Canyons Photos         Deer Valley Photos

Tyrol Skiing including
Kitzbuhel Photos         Stubai Glacier         Axamer Lizum Photos

Now for a change, try brain teasers. I would recommend those marked 'cool'.
