Point of Interest
“Yup, I worked here for 6 years and helped to build the beautiful new theater, so a big place in my heart. The shows are great, the people even greater. Summer is the time for education at Northern Stage, so if you have kids and are here in July check out the annual Summer Musical Theater Production -- 30 area kids performing on a professional stage with the support of this LORT-D company. September - June a schedule of world-class theater happens in this intimate 240 seat space. A great way to spend an evening! ”

“You only see a portion of the mountain from the road – there is some great terrain off to the sides, from beginner runs to wonderful glades and steeps. Good ol’ Whaleback boasts 30 trails, with a 700-foot vertical. There’s something for everyone, from the beginner area to awesome glades. The mountain is served by a two-person chairlift to the top,”
