Another heavy dusting of fresh snow arrived in the mountains near AdventureSkier headquarters (central Vermont) overnight, and with blue skies overhead and a fresh breeze out of the north, the mountains were calling more than usual early Monday. As much as we’ve loved riding lifts through the closing days at of our local ski areas lately, it’s great to be reliant on only our legs and lungs again. And there’s something about the turns earned with each stride up the mountain that makes them especially tasty, especially when the mountains throws you fresh powder, butter cream and golden corn all in one run – like it did Monday for Tom Hite, who’s featured in the photo here.
Tom was married to his sweetie Jami Mantia this past weekend, so these were his first turns as a married man! He was pretty excited on Monday all around, to say the least. Tom was also with us on a bike-powered skiing adventure through Norway’s Arctic Alps a couple of springs ago. Check it out here.
More mountain snow is in the forecast this week, and with both natural and man-made snow still lingering in many areas, there will be a great mix of fresh tracks, hard pack, fast grass and tasty corn awaiting skiers out there.
