We are so lucky here in the Northeast to have a resource like NEice.com.  If you haven’t visited the site yet, it’s time.  Doug & Co have been undertaking a major overhaul of the whole site over the past couple of years and its the go to resource for conditions reports, practically in real time, for Ice in the region.    NEice started over 19 years ago as a resource for climbers in an era before smartphones and social media.  Recently NEice went through a major overhaul to better utilize the information available on different platforms and centralize it in one medium.  Maybe even more importantly, Doug is at Apres at Ice Fest every year with homemade soup for all of you all!!!  Yeah!
We spoke to Doug Millen, NEice founder and guru of all things climbing routes, about what is new in the news at NEice!
From Doug:
Winter is here, and so far it looks like a great year for ice climbing. NEice is excited to be part of the Mount Washington Valley Ice Festival. The biggest ice festival in the northeast.
Over the summer I have been tweaking the website and expanding e-guide. And this season I will be flying the best Drone I have ever owned. The image quality is spectacular. Finally, I have a machine and the skills to deliver the ice climbing photos I have been dreaming of. I will be posting the images and video to NEice often.
I am also planning to import the 10,000 + ice climbing photos from the old broken system into the new Media gallery. This will be a great resource for all Northeast ice climbers.
NEice takes a lot of hard work and money to keep it going. We rely on viewers like you. Please make a donation today so we can continue to serve the Northeast Ice Climbing community. We are now celebrating our 19th year!

We will have plenty of homemade soup for you at the Ice Fest so stop by, grab some soup, say hello and be part of this great Ice Climbing Festival!  Stay tuned to the events section on NEice to get the latest information on this event. Hope to see you there.
