Then as the weekend was upon us, we headed off into the Vermont Backcountry to harvest some hardwoods with hardwood planks on our feet.
harvesting hardwood forests for schuss

Mmmmmmm. Tasty! Fresh Hardwood Glade Skiing. Nom nom!

Watch out for stumps!

As Saturday drew to a close, Sunday dawned with 8-13″ of fresh magic snow! Ben, Kristin and I headed up to “the top” to see how well the magic snow might schuss. Answer: well.
the magic snow works!

Very very well:

Turn to turn… left to right. Top to bottom. Woah.

    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.
