In 1973, Mike Farny had a vision: to bring affordable outdoor recreation to the residents of metropolitan Boston. Opening the Charles River Canoe Service that year, Farny became an instrumental voice in efforts to clean up the river, encouraging people to canoe, kayak, and sweep up the dirt on the riverbanks. The next year, he persuaded the Leo J. Martin Golf Course to transform its greens and fairways into a sprawling landscape for cross-country skiing alongside the Charles, allowing the public to enjoy recreation on the river even when its waters had frozen. A 15-kilometer system of trails makes use of natural snowfall and offers skiers a chance to change up their routes. Even when flakes refuse to fall, a state-of-the-art artificial-snow system shoots powder over a 2.5-kilometer loop, which rests beneath lights to allow night skiing before guests return to the cozy snack shop for hot cocoa and a bite to eat.
Every year just before ski season opens, the Boston.com Ski & Snowboard Expo gathers representatives from the sport’s foremost gear manufacturers and destinations under one roof for deep discounts and an unveiling of the latest models. Visitors can slalom from booth to booth, where they’ll be able to check out shiny new equipment by Rossignol, Marker & Völkl, take advantage of season-pass discounts from resorts across the country and the Northeast, or practice their shadow puppetry while wearing gloves by Marker. Meanwhile, interactive exhibits invite audience participation, and live demonstrations aim to wow onlookers.
Now in its 34th year, the 2015 Expo also includes a massive sale of East Coast Alpine equipment & clothing and a beer garden brimming with beer from Long Trail Brewing Co. Guests will regale with acrobatic antics during the Skyriders! Trampoline Show, and the Wachusett Mountains Kids Snowpark and Learning Center where youngsters can get ready for the winter without standing in front of an open freezer for days on end.
Wrought of gentle curves, translucent skylight screens, and sleek, finished wood and marble, the dining room and bar at Aura Restaurant in the Seaport Hotel evokes the captain's quarters of a modern luxury yacht. Designed and executed by internationally trained chef Robert Tobin, the menus seasonally change. Entrees made in a European tradition combine international influences while holding true to the American aesthetic and love of all things flag shaped. Dinner might include the likes of a pork osso buco with spaetzle and chicory, littleneck clams with grapefruit and house tagliatelle, or the wild salmon, leaping up a stream of red-wine sauce and melted leeks. In 2003, Boston magazine singled out Aura on its Best of Boston list, citing in particular how “the plump lobsters come seared, with a subtly balanced, ever-so-tangy sesame-ginger broth.”
