Old Man Winter’s resiliency continued to produce excellent skiing at all elevations this past week. Whether skiing fresh powder in the higher elevations (thanks to 2-12″ of snow falling Mon pm – Weds am), taking shelter from the cold wind and snow squalls, or skiing corn on some of the last remnant pasture lines lower [...]
With up to foot of mountain snows accumulating in the first week of March, followed by a good dose of spring last weekend/early this week, and then another 6-16″ falling across the mountains over the past few days, the month of March is upholding its reputation as one of the snowiest months of the season [...]
Snowflakes have been in the air again for 11 straight calendar days over AdventureSkier headquarters (at some during either the day or night). This is the second longest snow cycle of the season thus far, with more than 40″ of fresh snow piling up in this time in some areas of the Northeast. For how [...]
Nor’Easter Nemo threw the Northeast some beautiful powder snow today. Here’s a quick snap of Forrest Twombly making the most of it above Vermont’s Mad River Valley this afternoon. Enjoy the storm and stay safe! (Click on the thumbnail below to enlarge). – Brian LINK to “Like” AdventureSkier.com on Facebook. Thanks!
Small doses of light and fluffy snow has continued to help cushion the post-Thaw crust still lingering about over the last couple of weeks, and in many ways, the conditions off-piste have been “shallow powder” at its finest. This has been an especially fun snow condition for exploring the untracked backyard and backcountry, for covering [...]
Since the Cold North Wind chased away the January Thaw about one week ago, 2-12″ of fresh snow, generally speaking, has fallen over the high country of the Northeast. Where this snow has fallen atop refrozen snow not heavily tracked before the thaw, the skiing has been especially smooth lately…Near daily doses of fresh snow [...]
According to our ski log, snow has now fallen from the heavens every day or night for twenty straight days over AdventureSkier headquarters in Vermont. We cannot remember the last time this has happened, and it is truly reassuring to know that winter is not broken. No doubt, we are in the midst of one [...]
The Christmas Week Storm has delivered one of the greatest gifts imaginable this week, and snow-lovers across the Northeast are making the most of it in so many ways – by building snow forts, by enjoying turns with family and friends, or by sliding into the White Room wherever the terrain is steep and the [...]
While it’s still officially fall for a nearly another week, a wintry forecast here for the mountains of the Northeast (like the one depicted here, for north-central VT) is a sight for sore skiers’ eyes. And while this is still just a forecast (Courtesy: NWS), it is one of many that have been trending toward [...]
Let’s hope so…because by the looks of this giant mutant heirloom beauty, we’re in for one heck of a snowy winter. Perhaps this is how the folks at the Farmer’s Almanac come up with their latest predictions for the Northeast. Hmmm… -Brian Follow this LINK to “Like” AdventureSkier.com on Facebook. Thanks!
It’s late August. Summer has crested. Pre-dawn temps might dip below forty degrees in some colder mountain zones this weekend. It’s dumping in the Andes. And the first issues of Backcountry and Powder magazines have already hit news stands. Ahhhh… It won’t be long now. Meanwhile, the hype about the winter season ahead has become [...]
We’re having regular flashbacks to the 2011-12 season here at AdventureSkier headquarters, with this image stirring especially vibrant memories of the season’s biggest dump, which put down up to a few feet of super fluff across the higher elevations of the north country just a couple of days earlier. Those were good days, and good [...]
