We went up and made a quick schussing of The Slob this morning. It was epicly fun, and awesomely improbable to ski pow today. Indeed, it’s hard to imagine that just yesterday it was 50 degrees F and raining, and today we were surfing on top of 30″ of fresh.

It may not be light enough to get in your face every turn, but it is GAME ON in VT again! I think without a doubt it’s worth braving the tough road conditions, and getting to the mountain. Kick up a rooster tail and ride through it… that’ll get you a faceshot!

Go git sum!

Finally, I’d just like to warn folks to be mindful of avalanches in the Vermont backcountry. We witnessed numerous slides today on well known VT backcountry zones. We were sticking to fairly tame woods zones, and even in these areas we witnessed plenty of failures. It’s not hard to imagine any more serious terrain being extremely dangerous right now. Be careful!

    Great shots as usual FIS. Thanks for making breakfast (and work) tolerable. Jay P reported 42″ this morning. Yesterday posted a shot of some guy who looked to be using water skis they were so fat–sent it to my buddy in CO who was impressed….enjoy it for us.

    thanks guys! nothing special, but it was super fun and IMPROBABLE to ride pow yesterday. I trust Lionel with my weather-life… but I still somehow didn’t believe Monday was going to be a pow day when Sunday was wet warm and windy…
