Stoked to finally have a little bit of footage edited, we still have a lot to improve on both filming and editing but each video has gotten progressively better and we’re getting awesome feedback. Part 2 shall be out pretty soon, one more day of skiing.
Well the EC is pretty dry, Sunday River has 18 trails open and word is Killington is skiing pretty well too. It looks as though there could be a mild snow event throughout the next few days up North so keep your eye on the weather. We’re also thankful that Lucas got a GoPro HD yesterday, it’s going to make everything that much easier to document. I’ve included some T-Giving stoke, keep your tips up!
It’s amazing how timeless powder skiing is, enjoy this vintage video of Bob Smith –founder of Smith Goggles as he tests out his designs at the home base of powder skiing, Jackson.

Well today started at 6am with a drive up to Killington. I drove up expecting to see some type of white precip. and was disappointed to see all of the snow they had gotten the day before was now slush. Conditions were warm and variable with soft bumps and a little drizzle, skied from 9-11:30 and headed back to the Seacoast. Well it turns out the end of the week Coastal storm brought better waves than snowfall. Looks like it should stick around through Monday so get out there.
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.
So Sunday River opened today and they’re the first open on the East Coast 4 seasons in a row. They’re actually the first resort open for the season in the country.
I’m gonna go ahead and assume they opened today just in case some other heavy hitter EC resort opened for tomorrow (cough cough, Killington). So Kmart got swindled but I don’t think they were planning on opening up anyways. More importantly Killington got a pummeling this afternoon for about 2 hours. It looked like they got covered pretty well up top and we’re headed up in a few hours to do a little moonlit skinning.
Enough babble heres some stoke, we’ll have our own posted tomorrow evenin’.
