Group trip to Stowe, tomorrow. I've never been there. What are your favorite trails? I like moguls :)

Goat, Starr, and National. It is rumored that they have some other trails there, but I can't confirm... :D

Chin Clip is the best mogul trail at Stowe.

Very lightly trafficked too since the Gondy terrain is mostly lower level folks, plus the fact snowboarders avoid it like the plague. There were days when I used to pretty much lap Chin Clip until I was tired, and would then go home.

Who knows if Chin Clip or Centerline will be open this weekend.

How can you mention the Front Four trails without Liftline?? Not cool.

It's been a while, but I remember thinking Liftline didn't really measure up... Don't Starr and National follow the fall line better? I'm sure someone will school me on this ;)

Yea Liftline is the red headed step child. I would have picked a different trail but because they were all right next to each other it kind of made sense. Lookout would have been a better choice IMO

I just looked it up - 86.

I always thought I remembered liftline as not following the fall line all that well, which is why I didn't ski it... On google earth, it doesn't look like what I remembered.

Centerline has bumps, but according to the snow report page, it's closed. It certainly has snow on it; I have a feeling it's just an unskiiable sheet of ice right now.

Gulch (which is open) has (had?) bumps on it as well.

National was open on man-made snow; last time I saw it (last week), it was pretty firm and hadn't started bumping up yet. Liftline is open and had some bumps down skier's right.

And that's about it right now for bump runs. All the usual bump run suspects are closed.

National has medium sized bumps top to bottom & is open. I think it received some snowmaking as it was well covered. Centerline is closed but has huge bumps on it. The one small section on lower Liftline that is usually left ungroomed was also bumped up & open. This is as of yesterday Fri. 1/9.
