Bolton Valley | December 23, 2010

Had an awesome family trip today up at Bolton Valley with my father and brother, they received 7″ of snow since yesterday and were also offering 15 dollar holiday lift tickets. I had never quite experienced the crowds that this smokin’ deal brought in and it was a bit shocking at first but A few good powder turns and some friendly smiles from the lifties made everything numb again. There was a sense of anxiety coming from everyone that you could feel in the lift line but once the skis were pointed downhill again, you can bet your ass it was back to the white room.
I want to give a huge shout out to the Bolton employees for staying patient and friendly all day long, there was some serious crowding issues and they carried themselves professionally and friendly, for that I am appreciative. Next time you get on the lift, give the guy a hello and a thank you, a little smile goes a long way.
Lucas is headed to Vail! Have fun bro, don’t mangle those JJ’s anymore than they already are……(more information/photos to come on this topic) Here’s a little more Bolton stoke to add to the archives, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and pray for this weekend’s coastal snow event to pummel the mountains!
Here is Part 1 of today’s video, Part 2 up soon:

Killington | October 23

Well today we got up at 4am and set off to Killington. We heard they got a few inches yesterday and the peak was in the clouds for the whole day. We weren’t expecting much but we got some snow on the drive in and the trails looked pretty well covered. The snow was nice and dry and we finally could skin up.
Here is a teaser…more photos up later tonight.


Weather Update

The Storm Chasing page has been updated for this weekend’s upcoming Nor’ Easter, check it out on the menu above.
In lieu of the upcoming storm I found an old Bolton Valley POV video (not HD sry). These guys are rad though.
The Alpine-Live team was up at Bolton a ton last year and we pretty much thought we had the place on lockdown. Well aparently not, but these guys do….check out Devil’s Playground.


Spring Creek | The Drake

Looks like there could be some serious cold weather up in the Greens this weekend with a chance of snow, we’ll post some weather updates as it gets closer. The leaves are starting to change and it fully feels like fall today, expect an overflow of cliche foliage shots in the next few months. In the meantime, check out this awesome fishing edit.
