I'll try this but I don't think I'm going to enjoy it.

I've fallen off that traverse before, but never so far down that I couldn't get back up and continue on to the common drop in spot. I guess I'm just super paranoid about off trail exploring.
I steadied myself with outstretched arms against the rock face in front of me and eased out onto the unstable ridge. If I made it, this barren stretch of boulders would funnel me into one of Stowe Mountain Resort’s best unmarked glades. But one wrong twitch on this rocky cliff and I could tumble down a 30-foot embankment with nothing to look forward to but an ocean of ice and jagged granite. To navigate it successfully, I stood on the toe edge of my snowboard with bent knees, staring Mount Mansfield in the face........... Technically it doesn’t have a name; it’s not even on the trail map. Most likely it’s some local ski bum’s name for the deadly ridge I traversed.
wow - great timing man...enjoy.doing my single stowe trip of the year this Saturday, so nice coincidence bumping my old thread

I have never skied the bruce, but we will have ample shuttle cars, so this may be the time to end the day with it
wow - great timing man...enjoy.
You live in Brooklyn and ski 51 days in a season. While I don't envy life in any population center, that's an impressive feat.
I won't ask how you afford and manage the logistics of this lifestyle :lol:
