Ughhh! YET ANOTHER East Coast TR?!

In homage to Sam‘s classic TR from “the old days,” we’ve decided to just throw together a pile of awesome skiing that went down since our TR about how 6″ turns out to be equal to 1 meter in the right conditions. There really is no story to this TR. It’s just 6 awesome days (or parts thereof) of skiing in Vermont. From Pico to Jay, from 400 feet to 4000… this is just another East Coast TR.
Just another East Coast TR

After we were concluding our complex calculations last week, VT proceeded to blow all our computations out of the water, and magic snow almost every day. When it didn’t snow, it was sunny and free of wind. Did Utah get confused and move to Vermont (again)? No I don’t think so. We are definitely still in Vermont, Not Utah. Man-oh-man is this state fun though!

I’ll kind of work through this linearly. We started in the north last week and spent some time throwing ourselves off some stuff. Here’s the same cliff that Ben is hitting above, but from below and with me coming-on-down. Yee haw!
yee haw!

Yep we had some fun out there finding soft landings under Dynafit-huckable (TM) sized drops. Thanks to Sam and Allen for pushing us on this one! Special delivery from the PNV (Powdery Northern Vermont) to the PNW!

    There is an obvious lack of camera pointing compared to Sam’s TR. Sorry to call you out G. Besides that – WELL DONE!

    Great TR, as usual. I read it at breakfast then heard this song on the way to work (thank you CBC Radio 2). Thought I: this is the perfect soundtrack for those images. The video is a bit dorky but the words and music are right on.

      wow. cool band. hadn’t heard of those guys. a little soft (at least the vocals) for my tastes, but i can hear how it works!

      in the same vein that i often think about for a “long duration partially linear schmorgasborge TR” like this one is stuff from Vedder’s into the wild sound track. e.g:

    The frozen waterfall hucks are incredible. Love the BIG old trees too. GP – hard for me to separate the Into The Wild music from the sad story. NICE TR.

      Hey Harv… just saw this now. Interesting comment. I hear what you’re saying, and I know the ending is tragic, but Mcandless’ MO was interesting and somewhat inspiring to me. I’ve never been depressed by that movie.
