Agree for both! Everything off the Jet at Jay was great except a few woods that need more maintenance to ride them this early in the season. Still dangerous in the woods… no base under that thick layer of blower! December 13, 2010 at 8:58 pm #629613 SkateBananas 178 Posts ok so looks like we got the base and the ten day forecast looks like snow and good temps….. http://www.weather.com/weather/tenday/USVT0219 will be in the area around x mas visiting the family in milton. if anyone wants to get a tour in at mt mansfield or jay area around the 23 or 24th let me know.

December 21, 2010 at 7:58 pm #629616 splitchank 97 Posts hiked up to a boney line at 3600 ft Sunday, glad I had the rock board. Cliff bands were icy shit, less steep aspects had nice snow. We need a foot + of wet to seal the deal in central VT. December 26, 2010 at 2:11 am #629617 SkateBananas 178 Posts heading to the notch tomorrow. thinking about driving down to hit aschutny later this week. they should be getting some snow.

December 31, 2010 at 6:09 pm #629619 avalancheman 49 Posts is it just here in quebec that the snow has been sucking so badly this season!!!??? :nononno: i still havent taken my new splitboard out of the packaging….. :thumbsdown: i dont even know what conditions are gonna look like for my avalanche course in the chic chocs mid feb… will there even me snow to study? 😯 if anyone knows of good fresh snow somewhere here on the east coast please let me know i need to escape this torturous hell January 2, 2011 at 6:19 pm #629620 SkateBananas 178 Posts snow has been pretty good up until this warming, three days or so of melting here. yeah i did mean smugglers notch. I got two laps up there, great turns no core shots and really good snow. also went down to ascutney on tuesday after the big storm. 2-3 ft of pow on top of 0 base. sketch in some spots where the wind had stripped it. couldnt ride anything steep enough to stay above. The day was a FAIL, but now i know whats down there and what to expect if i ever hit it again. January 6, 2011 at 12:22 am #629621 goliath_2 7 Posts I drove to Ascutney today – complete waste of time. The hill was mostly covered in grass. January 6, 2011 at 9:24 pm #629622 SkateBananas 178 Posts yeah its over til we get another good storm, ill be heading for Colorado next week for the remainder of the season. good luck guys hope winter makes a return. January 11, 2011 at 3:05 am #629623 grubbers 150 Posts still a little thin in some spots, especially down low, but i’d say one more decent-sized storm and most of the woods in the mansfield area should be good to go. fairly deep at stowe today, but i still did catch a couple snow snakes at some inopportune moments and put one nasty core shot in the board. the snowpack is getting deeper, but still be careful when riding in the woods. January 11, 2011 at 5:14 pm #629624 splitchank 97 Posts ate shit hard on Sunday, still thin down low in central VT, put a 1.5 in wide/5 inch long core shot in the board and separated my shoulder :nononno: at least it was the rock board and I like to rock :rock: January 12, 2011 at 3:30 pm #629625 goliath_2 7 Posts Definitely heading back to Ascutney tomorrow morning (13th), maybe even today. The Mansfield area is supposed to be stupid cold tomorrow. Anyone interested in hitting up Brownsville with me? 6″-12″ expected before tomorrow. :drool: January 12, 2011 at 3:31 pm #629626 mysticfalcon 74 Posts Let me know how ascutney is. I am stuck at work but I am kinda thinking about making a trip down there to check it out on Sunday. January 13, 2011 at 10:22 pm #629627 Richard 23 Posts Report from Mansfield. Sick! Pretty windy up top but in the protected areas it was deep. Some spots were waist deep. The snow isn’t super light but if the clouds clear our tonight it may dry out by tomorrow, fingers crossed. January 14, 2011 at 7:10 pm #629628 goliath_2 7 Posts Definitely more snow at Ascutney than last week. However, areas are still a little sparse. There’s a lot of vegetation poking out, but overall it was worth the drive (for me it’s about 30 miles). I went today (Friday) and there were tracks laid down by others from yesterday or earlier in the morning. January 14, 2011 at 7:17 pm #629629 mysticfalcon 74 Posts Thanks for the update. Ive got a friend coming up for the weekend now so I’ll be staying inbounds or at least inboundsish at Jay for the weekend now anyway. Looks like they got plenty of snow to keep us happy. I was worried when they said most of the storm wouldnt make it this far north. January 14, 2011 at 8:34 pm #629630 Richard 23 Posts Get it! January 17, 2011 at 3:27 am #629631 rightsider 150 Posts I went on 3 tours in different areas of Northern VT in the past 3 days. Snow was awesome everywhere. The foot of fresh this morning was a nice little surprise. Broke trail the whole way up today, didn’t see another track all day. Tired and happy. Game on!
