Spring is here and there’s been some nice weather down on the Seacoast. The skatepark is dry, there’s been some trace of surf the last few days and the sunsets have been gorgeous. I think it actually hit 60 the other day but it’s still Winter up in Vermont. Stowe is reporting 7-12″ in the last 48 hours! It’s going to be an awesome spring up there for sure – the resorts close down pretty soon but it’ll be prime for spring touring. There are deals galore if you’re looking for a touring setup, this is the time of year to shop.
On another note, I started a new website for my own personal work – check it out at www.ryandenning.com

Well the weather didn’t quite do what I forecasted it to, but Stowe got 4″ and Cannon got about 5″, still more to come so keep your eye on resort conditions.
Here is the second and final video from the Pre-Season, enjoy!

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.

While the West Coast is getting hammered with snow the East has been pretty quiet. Regardless, it’s Sunday and we needed some exercise, so we packed up the car and headed north to Stowe. Stowe opens on Wednesday so they’ve been hard at work getting the snow guns going and putting everything in place for opening day, also known as the White Ribbon Of Death. We had a nice little tour up to the summit and decided on descending the the man-made snow instead of attempting the grassy and rocky natural stuff. I was a little disappointed that there wasn’t any new snow but the man made stuff is good enough for November.
On another note, Stowe’s webcam shows some pretty sweet coverage from last night. Reports said that the night before (Wednesday) Stowe recieved 3″ total up top. It looks as though there’s at least an inch to the base but as we’ve already seen this season, there could be much more at the mid-point and significantly more up top. It’s almost 11am as I type and the mountain is still socked in pretty good….with another inch or two predicted at the base we’ll be planning on taking a trip up there this weekend — still deciding on which day.
*Stay tuned for some developments on the Thanksgiving weekend storm.

November has been a good month, snow and surf wise. We’re currently experiencing one of the longest swells NH has seen since last Winter and there has been some significant snowfall in the higher elevations. We still have a 4-6″ snow pack atop Mt. Mansfield–It’s bulletproof ice but hopefully it’ll stick out this warm spell. Here is a few shots from the first half of November.

October 31, 2010 – Stowe Mountain Resort
10:30pm – bed for 4:00am journey north.
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.
