Forums Split Partners Wanted Northern Vermont rider wanted Viewing 20 posts - 1 through 20 (of 34 total) 1 2 → Author Posts November 23, 2006 at 12:37 am #568266 BigJay 342 Posts I’m from Montreal, Qc but ride in Jay Peak, VT. I got a splitboard so i can ditch the snowshoes and explore mountains around my area. I’ve been snowboarding for 19 years now… I ride anything with snow… I need to explore everything around Jay including Big Jay (which i know pretty well… I’ve been going there for 15 years!) but also want to explore all the surrounding mountains that my telemark buddies have been enjoying for a while! Anyways, anything North of Camel’s Hump would be nice!

December 2, 2009 at 8:57 pm #592157 nickhussey 1 Posts hey BigJay. i just moved to montreal after 6 seasons out west. i’d be super keen to try and get in on some trips around here, and possibly vermont as well. i’m new to splitting (been out a couple times) but have been snowboarding for around 12 years. i have a pretty haggard setup at the moment, but i’ve got everything i need to get going. noticed this post is pretty old, but get back to me if you’re still looking for partners and are still in the area. cheers. December 3, 2009 at 7:05 pm #592158 earthsurfing 144 Posts Always riding Smugg’s (and its incredible surrounds). Often at Jay- give a shout. December 3, 2009 at 7:54 pm #592159 Shep 525 Posts earthsurfing… we should trade some stashes on each side of the notch… I know a couple people… I can probably get you on the Spruce lift once or twice if we end up on that side of the notch. 😉 How carefully do the lifties check tickets on the Smuggs side? Shep December 3, 2009 at 8:18 pm #592160 earthsurfing 144 Posts I’m sure I can get you up. December 4, 2009 at 2:43 pm #592161 surfsnowywaves 60 Posts Hey I’m in Burlington, and I’ll skin anything. I’ve been going to Smuggs for the past coupla years now…but at the moment my Smuggs pass might be in limbo (and by that I mean me having a pass this winter at all is in limbo), so I might be looking for a lot of splitting. December 14, 2009 at 6:26 pm #592162 ShredTheEast 4 Posts I’m in Burlington with a pass to Stowe. I have hit just about everything in Smuggs and looking for some split riders. I like to explore anything with snow, I am hoping to scope out all of Mansfield this year. Always looking for people to ride with. I’ve been riding for about 18 years and splitting for about 2 with my DIY but just hooked up a Burton. Ready for the snow. December 15, 2009 at 12:27 am #592163 BigJay 342 Posts Hey Boyz! Anyone interested in doing a small gathering of splitters in Northern Vermont? I’m game for anything north of I-89… Of course, Jay’s in my backyard… but i wouldn’t mind getting out to the north side of the notch for a mini split-fest… beer and food after type of things… Let me know, i’m available for tours on weekends… can sometime stretch it out to fridays as well… December 15, 2009 at 1:06 am #592164 Shep 525 Posts My schedule varies, but I’ve requested weekdays off, so if I can come and play I will, but most of the time it probably won’t work out. If I can’t do a tour, I’d still be up for beers later on. Just let me know when and where. 🙂 Shep December 15, 2009 at 3:58 am #592165 surfsnowywaves 60 Posts I’d be down for a shindig. The Notch would be good…but I’ve never really done too much riding in the notch itself. Should also consider the Teardrop (maybe? there’s plenty of good stuff around there). There’s always the Jay environ – I’m sure I could swing a drive up that way. When would we want to do this? February? March? Weekend? Weekday? December 15, 2009 at 2:58 pm #592166 ShredTheEast 4 Posts I’m in. weekends work best for me but I would be totally willing to take a day off for some midweek shredding. Late Jan. early Feb works great for me. any locale works, I know the notch and teardrop fairly well but always looking for new spots. December 16, 2009 at 3:16 am #592167 earthsurfing 144 Posts I’m down. Notch is home, so I can ‘host’, or up for a little travel… December 17, 2009 at 3:00 am #592168 Shep 525 Posts Hey, waddya know. I have this Saturday off. Still a bit early season, I know, but if anybody wants to take a tour, or some runs inbounds, or whatever, shoot me a PM. I could even get up early to skin over the notch for a free ride at Smuggs or something (first 1/2 hour is free, right?) Thanks, Shep December 17, 2009 at 11:51 pm #592169 BigJay 342 Posts I would love to make it out there saturday but it’s still early and i won’t be in Jay before noon… December 20, 2009 at 12:41 am #592170 mark_r_werner 12 Posts Hey Guys, I’m kinda new to splitting but have been backcountry snowboarding the ADKs for a couple of years now. I’ve recently joined the Schenectady Wintersports Club which give me a place to stay in Waterbury, VT ( I live in Schenectady NY). If you guys are getting together keep me informed. I’ll probably be able to make it up. Mark firstname.lastname@example.org December 30, 2009 at 1:28 pm #592171 mysticfalcon 74 Posts Im another Jay junkie. I would definately be down for a VT gathering. I can only ride on the weekends but I ride every weekend. My place is over in Derby about a half hour from Jay but I do have long trail ale on tap at my place if people would like to do some post-splitting chow and beer.

I like the way you guys think. 😀 I’d be pretty stoked for a future split gathering if that ever could get organized proper. I’m riding Stowe tomorrow afternoon (I need to work in the am) hopefully once the wind dies down a bit. Since the inbounds runs are fairly scoured, I’m planning on doing a couple of split laps in the notch and find out where all the wind blew the powder to ;). If anyone else is around I ride a Prior Kyber, wear green Northface and green helmet. say ola. January 3, 2010 at 11:10 am #592174 mysticfalcon 74 Posts Yeah I bought myself a kegerator for christmas. I buy myself the nicest presents. I got 5 more inches since I went to bed so things around here keep getting better. I’ll be on resort all day today because my GF is really working on improving her skills in the trees because she definately needs to get better before I want to bring her out on her splitty. (which coincidently I havent taken the time to start cutting in half yet) January 13, 2010 at 3:46 am #592175 matt_vt 7 Posts Greetings – I live at Bolton Valley and would be down with meeting other split riders in VT. I’m new to splitting but I have been riding for 15+ years and have backcountry experience. Bolton isn’t very big but some good stashes and long creek runs all over the place. Would be down for hitting up Jay some weekend as well. Send me an email or PM. matt(at)hubeck.com Viewing 20 posts - 1 through 20 (of 34 total) 1 2 → You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
