Howie is a different animal. He appears and then disappears in a white puff of snow. I never know where he is going. The community in the back country is the same people day in and day out. I see the same faces at the bus and in the woods every weekend. But my favorite is when I see people in the woods that ask "where does this go" or "can i follow you" It takes all I have not to tell them to go blow or send them in the wrong direction. I don't because I feel responsible and usually screw up my own plan to get them out. I truly hate that.
    I can personally attest that Hawk has a generous spirit and is a lot of fun to ski trees with. He's even pointed me in the right direction a time or two.

    But realistically I do think there's a legitimate difference between talking about it on a place like this forum which seems to have maybe 2-3 dozen active participants vs. logging stuff on FATMAP or Strava.
    I think it’s a combination of technology, better equipment and the growing popularity of backcountry skiing. Just look at the skimos and the wait list associated with that program. If you’re worried about people finding lines reasonably accessible off of a lift served resort in this day and age, you’re setting yourself up for disappointment. I wouldn’t count marked woods trails on the sugarbush map. That’s crazy town, of course those get skied to death.

    Great day today. A bit crowded but good conditions other than the wind blown stuff off of Bravo. Lower FIS skied great groomed but it makes the runout seem so much longer. I skied Exterminator and Spillsville for the first time too.
