Re: Tracks!

Went on tour of Stowe today. Started at Mansfield base lodge, up to the Octagon, across to Cliffhouse and down Perry Merrill. Snow was variable depending on whether the sun had been on it. Did the entire tour without skins on my Vector BCs. This season has been a hate/love experience. Love the tract...

Re: Tracks!

Here's one from Sunday. Taken above Daniel's Notch looking back at Smuggs and Mt. Mansfield. That's an interesting perspective. I bushwhacked up Sterling Range Peak this summer and had a nice view south toward Daniel's Notch. It was apparent that there are personal lines scattered all over that ran...

Re: Tracks!

Here's one from Sunday. Taken above Daniel's Notch looking back at Smuggs and Mt. Mansfield. This photo was the highlight. Most of the rest was and epic slog. Pretty, but exhausting and not many turns.

Re: Tracks!

After a "good' day on Laraway mt on Saturday I headed back to Sterling Valley on Sunday. It's been a while since the last snow so the Upper Gorge Loop was a well beaten path.

Re: Tracks!

Snow in VT is surprisingly good. Actually its better than good. Skied on Laraway Mt this morning. Plenty of coverage. Snow was stiff but not crusty. Got really nice above 2000’. Tomorrow should be another great day to get out. Where to go? So many choices
