    Buffalo Mountain- Silver Couloir

    Haven't been the forums in a while but I'm bored and really want to go skiing AND it snowed here in Colorado last night so I'm pumped. My last turns for the season were in June on Buffalo mountain to ski Silver Couloir. It was a tiring hike up as most of the snow was melted (except for the...

    Smuggs 12.18.2013

    I skied Smuggs for about 3-4 hours today mostly on Madonna. No lift lines and snowing the whole time. There was a couple inches of new snow over night and things were skiing very nicely. I skied Doc Dempsey's glades quite a few times and hung out in the trees in the general area. Doc's was...

    SMUGGS- Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday

    I've been hitting Smuggs each day this week for afternoon turns. No lift lines and each run I was pretty much completely alone on the trails. Conditions have been a mix of everything from Powder to ice to exposed rock. Most runs off of Sterling are open with the exception of a few. I was...

    OK to Ski VAST Trails?

    The VAST website says the trails are for snowmobile only but the Catamount Trail Association gives me the impression it's OK to use the trails so long as you give right of way to the snowmobilers. I see videos of dirt bikes on VAST trails in the summer and trip reports of people...

    Hike Jay Whales?

    A photo from Jay FB page showing some decent snow making built up. I'm contemplating hiking it. Jay has a very Liberal uphill policy though I'm not sure if they would be cool with people skiing around snow making ops. Or if the snow would even be worth it. Ungroomed man-made can be questionable.

    Stowland- October 27th 2013

    After my scouting hike yesterday ( see thread: http://forums.alpinezone.com/showthread.php/125364-Snow-Report-Mt-Mansfield )I was sure it would be worth a skin up the Stowe side of Mansfield for some early season turns. Just bought new touring boots, Dynafit Titans, and had to try them within...

    Snow Report- Mt. Mansfield

    I just came off Mansfield after a quick scouting hike up to the summit. Things are looking good for October! Only about 4-5 Inches down around 2,300-2,400 near the trailhead. Up above 4,000 was another story. I was finding fairly consistent snow around 8-10 inches with drifts of 2 Feet+...

    Madonna Vasa Trail

    Is anyone out there familiar with the Madonna Vasa XC ski trail? It runs from Underhill, VT over to Smugg's around the northern part of Mansfield. I've been rather obsessed lately with finding old trails which have been lost over time. My free time in the last few weeks has been spent...

    Tusk to Elephant's Head to Unknown Ski Cut

    I went into Smuggler's Notch this weekend to climb Tusk from the road. I didn't get a chance to ski it last year so I thought I would do some scouting to know what I'm getting into before hopefully skiing it later this coming season. If you don't know Tusk it is about a 1,000 vertical natural...

    Campgrounds in Winter

    Many state campgrounds in ADK and VT close Sept/Oct and I am curious if anyone knows if it is due to the fact there is a significant drop in camper visits so it's not worth paying people to keep things operating or if there is another reason? Would it be frowned upon if were to pitch a tent in...
