    Ya know, for a region that people are "so over," the NE seems to be skiing pretty awesome right now. What a weekend. Weird snow for sure, but suuuurfy out there. I like surfy.

    And yes, MNIAW is a filthy hippie.

    4 long days this week. Legs are cooked. Skiing was great today with minimal people. Mrs. T agrees.

    The old man at 63, with snowshoes and hiking boots strapped to his pack, skiing better than I've seen him do in a long time.

    About to drop in here for the best turns of the run. The untracked snow was just deep and dense enough to (mostly) keep me off the ice crust.

    Whoever gets it tomorrow should have excellent conditions. As it was, yesterday was the most fun I've had on the Thunderbolt.

    I think he thinks highly of his father, apparently aged 63 years at the moment.

    Sweet Thunderbolt shots Dangur. Your oldman is only a couple years older than me. Awesome that you're enjoying together...

    It was a tight get in to this zone today at Sugarbush. Deep snow pack, we typically skin right under. Click image for larger version.

    Ok, so thinking of quick day trip from Brooklyn options...

    Has anyone been through Harriman state park and skied the old silvermine ski area in there? Is there any snow around there these days?

    Expectations are low, but hoping for a little coverage after tonightís storm.

    I love Plattekill, but not the 3 hours drive each way...

    High tide and rising for sure. Snow was punchy with the crust underneath but just had to hop turn like it's 1999.
    Pic is the uptrack yesterday. Sorry phone died so no other pics.

    Glad you all enjoyed the pics. My dad got a kick out of the comments, but did have one correction to make - he's only 62. Meh. Close enough.

    And yes it is great that we can still do this kind of thing. The adventure really started 20 years ago, when he put me in ski lessons just down the road from Greylock, at Brodie. Anybody remember that place? It's always nice to get back to the neighborhood.

    So much great stoke from the last week, Whites to Dad skiing to bushWhacking. Get after it!



    Warm and sunny bob with a fresh inch [1"] of fluffy snow.

    Visitor from the north arrived Thursday evening for the weekend. Spent Friday on a driving tour of the northern Hills where there is a ton of snow and high banks.

    Looped SE to South Royalton for Flatbread Friday at First Branch, What a great space and pies, 5 stars. Picked up some drops and Reset [which I've yet to try].

    Easy pickings in the backyard Saturday with several of the best lines untracked, looked like Surface Whore or Ducky were picking some fruit.

    Snow was manky as fuck, no relaxing while skiing. Sunk in to my knees during transitions.

    As usual the Zenbarn delivered Saturday night. Always amazing to watch someone play that is one of the worlds best up close. I don't think I can randomly move my fingers as fast as heiresses notes. Hoping to catch Yonder in Sante Fe.

    Maybe just much-maligned southern VT? Seems like every time dowork posts about MM someone shows up to crap on it. If you donít like Magic, you donít like the east.

    Besides, why should I give up the goods?

    Chalky snow makes everything ski pretty well. Two hero entrances were fun, even with only an inch of fresh.

    Don't take it personally. He'll be shitting on all of America after he gets back from Chamonix.

    I’ve done it. It is fun when there’s enough snow. I looked at it on Saturday and it wasn’t in great shape but if the snow that fell yesterday doesn’t melt and we get a little more, it’ll be good enough.

    Edit: It’s not anywhere close to as much fun as Plattekill though

    Back from Florida. The fishing wasn't good unless you were a heron



    Time to get back to skiing!
