    Same shot from a slightly different vantage point. The Bottlewoman was wary of getting too close for fear of sliding all the way into Hancock. You must have been skinning up above us when we crossed the traverse. As you suggest, the groomed terrain was not as bad as it could have been but anything untouched was pure, unmitigated terror.

    I'm not sure that would even be fun in ice skates
    Aim for the chopping block. If you aim for the wood, you will have nothing. Aim past the wood, aim through the wood.

    based on NOAA this could be true....what a huge bummer about the Jay death....when whatever inches we get at the resorts get hammered we'll be back to the danger in the same day

    I’ve never skied in New York, interested for sure. I’ll probably end up at Killington though. Drive looks heinous to Lake Placid. Thanks for the kind offer.

    whiteface midweek with a foot would be pretty fun. killington and north look like sure things too right now. i’ll be skinning 500 vert laps up north before work, hopefully we get enough to cover the coral reef.
    .....I hope you know that this will go down on your permanent record

    My .02,10:1 snow in general first, frozen mix for NH, s&c vt for a few hours+ then back to snow. mostly snow NoVT but warm air is trying to knock on our door also. Too tired to look at new data but wouldn't be surprised if warm air gets further north than forecast and beats up totals. Dacks likely do best with steaux (eastern slopes) winning on VT totals thru Wed night but it would not surprise me if n&w valleys in VT get more than hills.

    I'm washing the truck and only bringing rock skis just in case. I think it's a trap.

    The unfortunate accident that took Bruces' life is really sad. Most of these reported ski deaths leave one in the same space as a random car accident. You know they had a life and will be missed but there is no connection. In this case we have a report from Mr. Multiglisse along with a picture of a fellow skier and tailgater enjoying a good grilling. Bruce looks like someone who would have fit in perfectly at Killington in May.
    Having recently lost a friend to cancer at 50 and thinking about the fun times we had since the mid 80's makes me realize the hole people leave. Lets hope everyone touched personally by this can patch that hole.






    Enough melancholy for today.

    2` and dead calm bob under hazy skies.

    The incoming storm looks to have sleet mixing in and wind from S- SE early which isn't good for bush/Vailmont™. The frozen shit that gave t-the-east nightmares is also the underlying base. Skiing anywhere off groomed areas will require razor sharp skis to bite into the surface as a foot of snow isn't enough to charge around off trail imho. On my Sunday tour I found anywhere there was a track, even a single one, my ski crampons wouldn't sink into the surface. I had to skin to the side the whole time. Watch out for the 4 or 5 weeks worth of branches that are laying on top of the snow now.
    Fridays wet snow is what we need. Presidents week, not so much.

    Love how warm weather brings out the postholing douchebags for a 3 abreast skin track walk, over a half mile of mush misery.

    Still on the fence about whether or not I should make the drive this afternoon for this storm. I was thinking Stratton since its on the Ikon and Magic isn't an option. Just don't know if it'll be enough to make the woods fun up there. I'd be pissing people off at work, which I'm ok doing every once in a while. Just not sure if this is the one.

    A foot of snow not enough to find quiet and soft turns? Hmm. It will be for me. I guess I know the "Secret" to skiing shallow pow over the reef. It's all about angles.

    Going slow on skis made from recycled yogurt cups and tampax™ tubes in cow pastures?
