Back to the unsafe snow surfaces! Careful Kristin!

Christian tried to catch up to Kristin, but his grass schuss needs some work ;P

There was no fun had at all on the closed Killington Ski Area.

After the schuss we headed over and reminded ourselves how bad we are at climbing at the crags at Sherburne Pass. Maybe in a few weeks we’ll get a climbing TR up (and be able to finish a 5.9). But, until then–and as always–thanks for looking at!

…OH! and get ready for Slackfest 2010 to get underway any day now!! Peruse the old trip report from last year (and also Deep Cover Anthropology–a late late late season Slackfest endeavor) to get some ideas about how to git sum this late late season!

    Awesome! Looks like lots of fun.

    I do think though that you should make a concerted effort to get Putnam into more TRs – he’s a real looker!

      HAHAHA! Thanks for the compliment Adrian… indeed it was a ton of fun. And I will definitely try to get Putnam on board for content this summer. He’s the best looking entity on FIS.

      Slackfest this weekend? Even if we can’t all get in the same car, we should hook up at the summit. Hit me with an email if you want to work together (or if you want some advice)! Get Zack over here!

      When you wear shiny $3 jorts made by a company called ‘no excuses’ you better be prepared to show some leg.

    “On second thought, let us not go to Camelot. ‘Tis a silly place.”

    On a normal snow year right bout now I’d be doing a similar shred up on Tremblant…

    That dry grass is just so fun to slide on. Less fun is green grass that is dry and catchy, it ranks just above mud on the suckter scale.

    Fun TR, muchas gracias

    I’ve seen this look from KC before. It almost always results in Greg getting punished.

      hahaha what I’m really doing here is trying to transport myself back a few months to Austria for the Hahnenkamm. I have the perfect setup and tuck to schuss the downhill.

      The only thing that got punished was the backside of those “No Excuses” jorts.
