First Nor’easter | Part 2

With all of the Nor’easter talk this week we’ve been looking forward to getting back on the snow. Got up at 4am today with Lucas and headed North on VT-89.
We heard that Killington still had snow to the parking lot but only 15″ up top and we heard that Stowe got hammered with 25″ inches at the summit but there was a 1,500ft snowline (down-hike on the way out). After a long discussion we came to the agreement that Stowe would be a better choice. More choices, better terrain and a more relaxed earn-your-own-turns and skinning policy.
Stowe has some seriously savage terrain above the Gondi summit. We didn’t head up today because the coverage just isn’t good enough yet but we’re heading back up as soon as the pow comes. Here’s a few shots from today, unfortunately the snow was pretty bad, super wet and pretty sun baked, video to be posted later this week.

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.
