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
Wednesday was amazing, lowest water content I’ve skied all season. Last year we had an epic 30″ dump of pure blower powder and Wed. was almost as good. I headed up early and met up with John Howland and Dane Weister, Wilderness and Timberline were both closed for the day so we had plenty of prime terrain for shooting. Four hikes later and a full memory card I found myself cruising home with some serious wind burn and a perma-grin. Enjoy the photos and get your butts up to the mountains this weekend.
This morning was some of the finer surf I’ve seen all season. Hooked up with some boys in Maine and shot so many photos the camera over-heated. It was pumping to say the least, here is a little sample.
So today was disappointing, but we still have faith. The New York surf cams are looking insane and Rhode is starting to see some swell. Tomorrow should be smaller in the morning building through the day. Peak has been pushed forward until Monday. To kill some time today we went skating…
There will be some cold temps up in the Adirondacks and Greens on Wednesday night with the chance of precipitation in the snow form above ~4500ft. It will still be weeks until we see the slopes starting to discuss openings but keep your eye on the temperatures up in the mountains, it won’t be long before we can earn some turns.
