Working For The Weekend 5: Mount Washington
Ben discusses his deep family roots with the White Mountains. He and the crew hike and shred some of the lesser known areas around Mount Washington, NH and a mix of sun, clouds, wind, calm, snow and slush accompany them on their tours… pretty much standard for the mountain known to have “the world’s worst weather.”

About The “Working For The Weekend” Series:
Longtime Meathead Films veteran, Ben Leoni, is now living in Portland, Maine, holding down a career and the daily office grind. In between piles of paperwork, he dreams of his weekends skiing in the mountains. Last season he made those dreams a reality.
Ben spent the winter of 2013 skiing the Northeast without the aid of chairlifts. Showcasing legendary backcountry zones as well as hidden gems around New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine, “Working For The Weekend” is a groundbreaking new web series and the first of its kind in the region. From deep powder to treacherous ice, Ben and his crew of friends embody the “earn your turns” mantra for the East Coast.
