- Stamford Ct and Stowe
I started the season as early as I could November 13 at K..then it snowed pretty hard the 14th so I was off to a good start. Then some days at Stowe, fast groomers over and over, which were pretty much just to get in shape. Then the Catskill storm hit and it was powder for 3 days 2 at Hunter 1 at Bell, then a Hunter manmade powder day. So far 11 days. A lot of people I talk to are pretty much just getting started now..which isn't ideal. A few I know went to Alta/Bird..tried to ski deep powder as their first days on snow and got hurt..which ended their trip as soon as it started. Getting runs in early season to me is the key to not getting hurt when things get real out there. I don't think I have ever gone out west without getting some days in here. And lapping fast groomers at wherever early season is the only way to really get in shape for the season.
