A Completely Average April

April 26, 2010


At this point we were REALLY REALLY sure that powder skiing was over, but low and behold, somewhere-north-of-5 inches fell on Mount Mansfield on the night before April 18th, and we wouldn’t be the Famous Internet Skiers if we left that pow go unschussed.

Christian and Greg hustled up Nosedive ski trail trying to keep pace with the spirits of Charlie Lord and Perry Merrill (who get special lift privileges after closing day at Stowe).

At the top they couldn’t believe just how good it was. Not quite VTah part V, but definitely worth the effort!

Top, bottom, left and right…. they simply couldn’t believe how good it was.

      D: thanks for checking in dude. Sorry it didn’t work out to meet up on Saturday. We’ve been basically calling our lines as we see them based on real time conditions… so yeah… that means good skiing, but also being really flaky for anyone who we are trying to meet up with. sorry about that. We actually did pass through OG, and i checked my phone to see if i could give you a ring and see if you were there, but i couldn’t get service. It will happen sometime! thanks again, and pray for snow!

    Excellent as always guys. Yeah, I’d say that shot was worth it……but I didn’t have to climb up there to get it. ;-) You guys are animals. More pow on the way….

      Thanks Gregg. I should dig out the shot I have from last season when the thing was covered in a veneer of ice, and both Sam and I refused to ski it even though we knew it’d be an incredible picture.

    Nice work as always. Hope you guys plan on making another calendar this season… I see a few shots just from April this year that would work great.
