Ski Martock, Nova Scotia's most popular ski and snowboard area, is roughly halfway between Halifax and Kentville, about 45 minutes from Halifax and a scant half hour from Kentville, on good roads. Its 600 vertical feet and seven trails are served by a base-to-summit fixed-grip quad, two T-bars, and two rope tows. Martock, which typically has a season of 100 days or better, buzzes day and night, seven days a week, from nine in the morning until 10 at night. All the trails are lighted and covered by snowmaking.

Salomon Freeski TV follows a group of ski bums in Whitewater, B.C. as they hunt for powder, drive with their boots on, and make sidecountry laps. Sound like your ski buddies? Probably, except these guys are all over 70.
