The Adirondack Phantoms are the hard-hitting American Hockey League affiliate team of the Philadelphia Flyers. With top scorer Denis Hamel coordinating the attacks, Johan Backlund guarding the net, and left wing Andrew Rowe acting as the wry comic relief, the Phantoms stand ready to disrupt the rankings of intradivision rivals the Charlotte Checkers and Albany Devils, as well as Atlantic Division power Connecticut Whale. Screaming fans with gold-level seats, shown in black on this seating chart, will have a clear view of every smoke-trailed slap shot, every body-checked player's smushed face against the Plexiglass, and every accidental summoning of Ymir the frost giant.
Hotel stays are valid for one of two three-night periods: Thursday, June 7, through Sunday, June 10; or Friday, June 8, through Monday, June 11. Each smoke-free premier room includes complimentary high-speed Internet and ergonomic work chairs.

Since 1955, Whaleback Mountain?a ski slope and family fun attraction?served as a pillar of the community, until it went into foreclosure in August of 2013. That's when the Upper Valley Snow Sports Foundation stepped in. The staffers at the nonprofit organization knew that Whaleback was worth protecting, so they now work to keep the area hot spot alive depending on the community's support. Under the new nonprofit model, Whaleback's 30 trails, descending 900 feet, remain open to skiers and snowboarders of all skill levels and ages, whether they stick to the bunny hill or dare to explore the five double-black-diamond runs. Newbies can hone their skills with the help of the learning center's professional instructors, and strap on gear from the rental shop. After a day of speeding down expertly groomed trails, guests can unthaw at the rustic lodge, sipping drinks and sharing stories about out-skiing the on-site abominable snowman.
Warm in winter, cool in summer, and filled with amazing acts in every season, the Big Apple Circus's pair of Italian-made big tops contains the best of several generations' worth of circus traditions. A look at any show's cast finds a complex network of venerable European circus families passing the arts of juggling and trapeze artistry down through the years, while the tents' motors and seating make for a comfortably modern spectator experience.
You might never guess that the troupe started small in 1974, when American circus artists Paul Binder and Michael Christensen joined forces as a juggling act on the streets of Europe. They moved from streetlights to spotlights in a hurry, appearing on the stage of the Nouveau Cirque de Paris, before returning to the U.S. and creating their own not-for-profit circus in 1976 and raising their first tent in New York's Battery Park.
