Since the flurries are collecting on all the Northern slopes as we speak, now seems like the perfect time to kick off another winter season in Vermont. Here's to exploring and fresh tracks.

Nice to see some white in the mountains today. Getting stoked for the season, hopefully it delivers.

Here is some riding footage from last Feb in Northern VT.

Took a stroll up Smuggs yesterday to check things out. It was thin, probably 8" of dense snow up higher. Good to get out in some snow and start working my touring muscles at least, although I did get some fun survival turns in as well. It wasn't bad as long as there was grass underneath and not rocks lol.

I was in Saranac Lake today, High Peaks looked incredible. Looks like things warm up for the weekend before cooling down again next week.

Hey guys! Just got my first splitboard (but have been backcountry riding for years now) and am looking for some people to ride with this winter. Let me know if you are interested!

Also this was taken on the top of Jay Peak on 10/30. Getting ready for some turns!

I might head up to Jay next Wednesday, depending on what these incoming clippers do. Are you near Jay xc?

Just saw this on the FIS facebook page.

"Upslope snow showers today thru tuesday morning. Best and deepest snow will be Jay Peak Resort where it is possible upwards of 8-12 inches could fall by tuesday morning."

Hey Gang,

Woke up today to three to four inches of nice fluffy powder on mid mountain Bolton, thinking of trying to get in something tonight or tomorrow AM. Did anybody get up to the summits today?

Also, the mountaineer is Keene Valley (Adirondacks) is doing an intro to Avalanche safety and rescue on January 18th and 19th. I just signed up, let me know if your going to join in and maybe we can work out a car pool.

Hearing reports of 12" + up high at Stowe. Might try and get out sometime tomorrow, have to see about getting out of work early. Think there is some more upslope snow coming tonight.

Good on you for getting some avy training. I think there are some places in NH & VT that offer AIARE 1 also, but probably more expensive then that class.

Bring back some stoke if you get up on the hill!

Yeah I looked into them, but I just don't have the money to drop on a full course right now, but I don't want to fly blind either. I figured this would give me enough knowledge to get started here on the east coast, then I'll save up for a more intensive course when I start to look into trips out west.

I made it out on Bolton in the dark just to give the new split a try and I am hooked! Really can't wait to get out to some good back country with it this winter. (no pics as I was by myself). As far as snow was concerned, I made it up to about 2500 feet (just above timberline mid station). There was probably about 5-6 inches of dense snow.

Also, from a friend. This was Stowe today I would say that those reports of 12 inches plus are true.

Unfortunately, I will be at work during daylight hours tomorrow but I hope one of you goes out and gets some!

Looking forward to hearing about it!
