Sitting in the parking lot, having completely blown off all obligations, but skied as much as our legs could provide, we couldn’t be happier, and our MHL couldn’t taste better. What’s more, we could see our day’s work scattered across the massif. Here’s all the track stoke:
Goat

National (upper part–we didn’t actually ski this. We skied the lower part)

Liftline

Starr.

Thank you Mount Mansfield for being great and improbable.

If you want to see more pictures of the mountain cloaked in white from a distance check out here. Otherwise thanks for looking!

    May Powder…funny that an old fart like me can call it. This is some seriously strange weather. The wave like nature of this series…yes, “this” as in continuing.. and the funky Jet Stream Track make it just possible for another “October Suprise” in May.

    Don’t count on it…but weather geeks are busy cleaning themselves over this pattern.

    Fingers crossed, not tips!

    Happy Trails

      The list for next year is like this as far as I’m concerned:

      1.) Ride Last Call and rap into CG

      2.) Get the poles shot.

      3.) GNF

      Stay tuned…
