    Month long trip to Colorado......

    Since 2020 has been so crappy, my work is fully remote now and so is my son's school, we made a family decision to spend the month of December in CO. While the trip is almost done at this point I figured I'd post somewhat of a quick recap of the places we've been and the early season conditions...

    Vail day trip 2/20

    Our plan out in Colorado was to ski 3 or 4 days at Vail then 3 or 4 days at Beaver Creek. After 3 days at BC we decided to head over to Vail to give the mountain a try for the first time. Thankfully we skied with friends who know Vail really well as it is a massive resort that you can easily get...

    Beaver Creek trip over President's Week......

    We arrived at Beaver Creek on Monday Feb 17th and skied at the resort 6 out of the 7 days, we were all incredibly impressed with the place. The terrain is solid and varried for all levels of skiers, is it the best terrain that I've ever skied, probably not but it's very good. When you factor in...

    Paradise > Goat > Face Chutes

    We had a great time skiing in VT over MLK weekend and into the week. Having been to Mad River Glen, Stowe, and Jay Peak during the trip (and amongst other challenging runs) I was able to ski Paradise at MRG, the whole Goat trail at Stowe, and the Face Chutes at Jay Peak. Since those trails are...

    Stowe report January 19th, 20th & 21st.

    From MRG on Saturday we made our way up to Stowe as the storm came in which lasted through most of Sunday. We planned on going to Jay Peak Sunday but the weather was so good at Stowe we stayed put, boy am I glad we did. The mountain at one point was about 95% open and I finally got a chance to...

    Mad River Glen day trip 1/18/20

    When we head up to Stowe from our home in NYC our routine is to stop over in Manchester VT then the next morning we'll hit Killington or Sugarbush for the day to break up the long ride. This time we tried Mad River Glen for the first time on Saturday as the stop over, what a great place to ski...

    Breckenridge day trip 12/27/19

    After 2 days of skiing at Keystone we decided to make the 25 minute drive over to Breckenridge for the day. We had never been there before but I read up on the mountain quite a bit beforehand to try and avoid crowds over the holiday weekend. I thought Friday would be better than Saturday or...

    Keystone Christmas trip, unreal glade skiing.....

    We made our way to Keystone for the first time over Christmas break. After skiing it for 4 days I can say that the mountain is incredibly underrated. Sure Keystone lacks in steep expert terrain but it more than makes up for it with all of the unbelievable grommer, tree, and bump skiing. Keystone...

    1st trip to Hunter mountain 11/29 & 11/30

    So many trip reports have been written regarding Hunter mountain so I'm not going to add much other than we were all pleasantly surprised. We gave it a try since Hunter was added to the Epic pass and I'm glad we went, it has the feel of a VT mountain in upstate NY. If it weren't for the Epic...

    What is the most challenging glade trail here in the East coast?

    I just started skiing glades this past season and love the extra challenge of trees in the way. I was wondering what the most challenging glades are from the experts here in the Northeast. I've skied close to all the marked glades at Killington, Jay, Stowe, and Sugarbush along with some unmarked...

    Squaw Valley report from July 3rd to July 4th.

    After three wonderful days at Mammoth we headed on up to Squaw Valley for our final two days of the season. Having heard that Squaw was expecting over 6k people on the 4th we knew that the 3rd was going to be the best day to try and ski Squaw. There were around 20 runs open that day but 8 to 10...

    Mammoth ski trip June 29 through July 2nd.

    I had to travel out west for work the last two weekends and seeing that its pretty rare to ski in July I thought it would be a good idea to knock summer skiing off the bucket list and take the family with me so we could squeeze in 3 ski days at Mammoth and 2 days at Squaw Valley between...

    Jay Peak April 22nd & April 23rd.

    After skiing was finished up for the year at Stowe on Sunday we did two day trips up to Jay Peak on Monday and Tuesday. I had read and heard great things about Jay but had never been there before. I got my wife and son a lesson on Monday so I was able to explore the mountain on my own for 3...

    Stowe trip report April 20th & 21st.

    We got our last VT weekend of skiing in over the Easter holiday doing 2 days at Stowe then 2 days at Jay Peak after Stowe closed for the season on Sunday. We had never skied that late in the season before so we had no idea what to expect. Unfortunately the conditions on Saturday at Stowe were...
