    Killlington Video Trip Report - Alba Adventures




    This winter is one that just keeps on going and that we keep on loving. With fresh snow falling in the East it's hard not to find incredible Spring skiing in Vermont, or anywhere in the East.

    This year we made a personal goal to ski 50 days; a goal that we are close to getting too. Along the way, we have made some incredible new friends and have sparked the re-interest from friends we have known for years to start skiing again.

    Recently, a fan of our videos and now friend reached out to us to let us know he would be skiing at Killington, a place where we have not skied with Nevada. Being that we also happened to be in Vermont and very near to him, we figured it would be a welcome opportunity to meet some new people, ski with them and make new friends. Needless to say, Sam and Sarah are very special people. Fun, loving and people you want to be around. Also, happen to be great skiers!

    We hope you like this latest episode titled 'Nor'Beaster' and we hope you can make some turns this Spring. Winter isn't really over yet!

    Hoping to make some turns with some of you before the season ends.

    Happy Spring skiing everyone.

    Your opinion. For many it is adventurous just to get out of your house. Look up the definition of adventure, then get back to me. Thanks...

    A few cliff hucks would have made it more adventurist

    The conditions didn't really permit us going into the woods. To much fog at elevation and most of the glades were roped off. It went from warm spring like conditions to full on winter which made it really tough to do. Remember, we have young kids and if you watch our other videos, you can see, we are fairly adventurous with them when it comes to skiing. Maybe join us and we can get you on video doing that cliff huck. Let us know..

    Ray : dont let a few pompous downers ruin your day man !! I admire your enthusiasm and dedication to both the sport and giving your children a rich collection of memories ..Your kids will benefit from the time you guys have spent with them on your ADVENTURES

    . Just carry on and IGNORE the noise to signal ratio.

    Enjoy !

    Merriam-Webster:
    1 a : an undertaking usually involving danger and unknown risks
    b : the encountering of risks <the spirit of adventure>

    2 : an exciting or remarkable experience <an adventure in exotic dining>

    There you have it. Glad you had fun and met some people.

    So there you go. To city dwellers, skiing is exotic. Also, skiing is inherently dangerous, sure you have had a few encounters with trees.. A few people have died and my son had a close call on a green run this year and a tree when his binding pre-released. Are you saying that skiing isn't exciting freeski? Maybe you should consider a different sport... I don't understand your issues but, clearly you don't enjoy family skiing so, maybe just tune out. I am OK with that.
