Cloud 9 – Bolton Valley | January 4, 2011

UPDATED 2-5-11 | 10:00pm I’ve skied so many days this past week they’re almost all blurred together. Friday was special though, two other bros and I sought out some secret lines we have had our eye on for a while now, just waiting for the right day. We got one hell of a workout…skins breaking, icing, falling off, frozen bindings but also long untracked gullys and steep powder lines. Once again (for the 3rd time this season?) I heard “This is the best East Coast skiing I’ve ever experienced”. Bolton Valley ladies and gentleman.

We also had a pretty awesome time today up at Mad River Glen, the Ski The East Freeride Tour was going on and everyone was throwing down huge, stoked to be up there shooting and enjoying ourselves for once, instead of skating around like maniacs trying to pounce on every ounce of powder we can. That update will be up around Wednesday as it will be available to the STE fellas first.
2-4-11 | 8:00pm — Well today was unreal. I’m gonna reserve this space for a post later on — prolly tomorrow morning. I’ll leave some photos just for a place keeper.

Bolton Valley | January 29, 2011

Went up early to Bolton again this morning, this time accompanied by a new guy….Ryan. We’re always stoked to have new riders come along, especially if they rip. Today the plan was to do some backcountry touring outside of the ski area boundary. We combed the mountain for leftover pow and decided around 11am to throw the skins on and jump off piste. Last week we dropped a few hints on how to reach the line we skied, hopefully nobody heads up that way because it was scraped off and quite frankly, dangerous. Today it was just far to good to expose our route, Bolton continues to bring the sickness and today was no exception. I still have that perma-smile on from getting snow in the face so many times. Our new guy (and hopefully a regular from now on) mentioned that it was “the best east coast skiing he’s ever experienced”. This isn’t a rarity, I’ve said it at least 10 times myself and I’ve heard our previous guests saying the same thing.

**On another note there is an enormous blurb on the map for mid-week…it looks like the mountains could get slammed. GAME ON! Stay tuned into Alpine-Live.com for weather updates as they become available.
