The forbidden blog post will be posted (yes, this was really at the trailhead)…

…detailing a triumverate of New England skiing and riding.

Was this a first descent? Probably not. This blog isn’t rad enough for FDs yet… but stay tuned just in case!


YO! If you’re still reading this blog, the forbidden post has been posted! Check it out here.

    Didn’t you know that is a super-uber-ultra-secret stash? That’s why I stick to the darkside and resort to the ninja style zip line entrance into the gnar. Someone really carried that sign up there? Someone really expected it to work? You just got to love localism.

    Ahhhh! My blog’s too big to fit in the canyon.

    That sign is hilarious though ultimately kind of depressing. EC BC people are a small enough group to drop the localism bs.

      Hilariously Depressing. I have a picture of myself posing with it that I’ll get up later, and you can see the tragic joy in my eyes…

    It’s a different world across the lake… Personally, I only wish that many more of us were out there skiing and sharing it. We’d be organized, have better trail networks, better access and more energy for legally planning, trimming and maintaining better backcountry zones…partnerships with other users, etc…

    How about a sign that reads “No Grumpy Skiers”?

      It’s not a good sign if you aren’t trying to violate the Bill of Rights with your edict, so I’m not sure I like that one Brian :D

    dude, i can’t believe you posted that! I could understand not keeping it a secret if you were skiing somewhere that was easily accessible by road, on the most obvious mountain for skiing in the entire region, and cut by a giant swath across the mountain visible from a state away. But that spot is far, far off the beaten track, miles away from ANY signs of humans. You can’t cheapen the true wilderness by posting pictures of it on the internet!

      I actually haven’t posted yet about it, mind you. The blackout portion of the text was to protect my zone bro.

      Wow. That is curmudginy! Normally I respect the vagueness with which you detail areas I know and don’t know. This time I think you should post lat and long coordinates, gps waypoints, and any thing else that will help us “douche bags” find where this is exactly. We are a pretty small group of EC BCers and its probably better to stick together then drive apart.

      I say keep up the good work Greg et al!

    Wow, this is ridiculous. Absolutely ridiculous. I imagine this was public land that you were on, and if that’s indeed the case then no one has any right to tell you what to do there. I don’t understand where people get off trying to restrict access to or knowledge of public lands.

    Sure looks like some fun skiing though!

      Nothing says “live free or die” like a Bill of Rights infraction… :D

    So why do people blog about BC ski stashes anyway? And what would motivate someone to post a cardboard sign at a trailhead like this?

      I think people like to blog simply because they’re human: they like being social, making friends, and learning about cool new places to go while sharing tidbits that they find themselves. Not to mention it’s cooler than making a ski movie which is one directional, and a priori removes the creator from any potential interaction with the viewer.

    um yeah and also some of us will take years perhaps to be cool enough to ever get shown those spots. So at least the armchair heroes can dream. me, I just get up and go, solo, and search, and if I find a nice little line on a 25 degree slope that puts a smile on my face then, ok. they are just woods, and it is just snow. Sharing stoke and divulging lines is neighbourly, though. ;)

    mm I am not so clever. perhaps the rockpile yeti who posted that sign was being ironic?

    Ironically, this sign is picking up considerable notice out in the blogosphere.

    I think this was staged. There are some cantankerous BC skiers out there (especially in the dacks) but this seems a bit…..ironic.

      Or maybe it was a TEST!!! Anyone who blogged about the forbidden blogging zone is now blacklisted from the tele-dude-rockpile-bro-club. I’m gonna be really upset if so: I love the smell of sweaty patchouli in the skintrack in the morning.

    At least you weren’t charging up there, wild-eyed, on snowmobiles waving around bottles of Jack and firing small arms into the air in wild abandon whilst gnawing on a leg of raw poached venison.

      actually that’s allowed up on the mountain… none of the locals have any problems with that…
