I started using NEice.com pretty early on for information about conditions at many of the areas around the Northeast. These days it’s hard for me to imagine a winter without NEice. The website takes conditions reports for all of the areas around the northeast and puts it all in one spot. It also keeps climbers up to date about exciting events and new route information on the east coast.
Doug Millen has been running NEice almost singlehandedly for about a decade now. It’s not his full-time job. He does it as a service to the climbing community. The past few winters he’s had some help from other individuals, but strictly on a volunteer basis.
If you read this blog there’s good chance you’re also an NEice user. If you haven’t donated to NEice yet for this season I urge you to do so now. The list of donors is pretty short, and the cost of maintaining the site is substantial. Any amount helps, and the standard donation is $25. Here is the link to the donations page.
