TR: 24 hours
Sandy wreaks Havoc. Fortunately, we were spared here in VT this time. But it was 45, pissing rain and windy and winter seemed to be far off still. Reports started to roll in of record snow fall in the high plateau hills of the mid atlantic appalachians. So the notion of driving 25 hours for 24 hours of human powered storm skiing in West Va seemed to be gaining approval from friends, jokingly at first, but then the momentum "snowballed" and the trigger was pulled for a Snovember adventure.

BushWhacker in Pa
Resident Guest Appearance by: Scottyb
First I want to say that I am more than impressed by the mountain landscape and Culture down there. As Chip, the manager of white grass and a former vermonter, said this place is "Vermont South". Timberline for sure had better vert and pitch, but White Grass attracts a type of BC enthusiast and maintains a vibe that I wish we had more of here in VT. Chip could not have been more stoked to have us all there and to show us around what he has been building for a couple of decades now.
A shot of us all about to make our first drop with Chip, who is grinning ear to ear
TWD strips his skins
and makes his first pow turns of the 12-13' season
DoWork thought it looked fun so he follows
Crank54 comes along as well
Chip show us how its done
Jon S does not like to wait for skiing pics, cramps his daily vert goals
But still we followed him into the unknown
and found some great snow on the "other side" of white grass.
Crank54 on the "baldy steeps"
Bushwhacker in Pa down from North Vt in an impromptu trip to visit his parents in near by pittsburgh. Glad they are getting quality time together
$10 a night for this Hill Billy chalet with 3 meals included, this trip really worked out
Day2- Crank at timberline first run, white grass had some traffic for sure so it was nice having a whole mountain to ourselves and skiing untracked all day. Sorry for the blurry shots, wrong camera setting this day.
About to head up
Hi mom and dad!
DoWork heading up, the sun peaked out for a few minutes

Way to motivate all, enjoying all the shots and reports. Hopefully, the early models I've seen for later this week bring some of those conditions a little closer to home.
