Re: Tracks!

An early Wednesday dash to the hill got me third tracks on the Gulf of Slides Ski Trail. The first two sets were by a gent who went to just before the Fingers slide path crossing for a lap down to the dip just above the Alternate skintrack and back up for another go. I went just above the upper cach...

Re: Tracks!

Not exactly Frabjous Day in the Zone: Oh that fresh snow, oh that nice skin track under the fresh, alas that crust layer defeated my not yet hale and hearty knee. 2,400 vertical feet gained in good style but the descent was not one for the record books. Still, I did saw away a couple of line blockin...

Re: Tracks!

Adventure skiing with BobT is always a treat. Ruby and Cooper joined in the fun with doggish enthusiasm, to wit, they covered about 11 miles, maybe 12. Bob and I covered 7.4 miles. We gained almost 2600 feet of vertical but the dogs may have gained much more. Disappointed by the scant snowfall, we w...

Re: Tracks!

CaninesRule! Monroe Brook looks like it needs a little more snow... O'dark thirty start from home. Slick and firm, but not bad for skinning on the Tuckerman Ravine Trail. A bit under an hour and a half to Hojo's. The Bowl was fully socked in so I went over to the Sherby and went up to the Hillman's ...

Re: Tracks!

Monday was the first day of my season: Low tide on North Uncanoonuc. 4 hours sleep kept me to only two runs for 1250' total vert. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49168848663_bcff0e3e8b_k.jpg Broke a pole on the first run. Field repair worked fine (a few laps with gorilla tape stabilized the hack...
