Two years ago while we were wandering around one summer day, we found a hole in the backbush.

We were pretty sure it was the shortcut in the Stowe Derby we missed 4 years ago.

Yesterday we finally got the courage up to go through the hole. With schuss gear. And some tears. And frozen fingies.

We needed some other toys too.

But once we were done playing with those toys, the rest was pretty “Easy.”

The Curmudgeon was a little nervous…

… but found his rhythm quickly.

Four hours of approach… five minutes of schuss. Maybe less. Definitely worth it.

Exiting the run, and looking back at what we did. Hard to believe snow ever packs up in there.

Thanks for stopping by.

    I Like the picture of Big Bird before entry. It captured the pitch. This is the kind of shit that warrants its own website. Nice job.

    Impressive effort as usual. Even the outrageously difficult indeed looks like it’s Easy.
