  1. Need to end this mild weather and bring a nice sustained period of cold nights here in the east. Not looking to promising over the next ten days. Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports
  2. T4T was an awesome resource back in the day. Lots of good beta on skiing on and around mount Washington. Too bad to see it go. Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports

  4. I’ve used both regular light detergent and tech wash to wash ski clothes. Tech wash is supposed to rejuvenate the water repellency but it’s expensive and I don’t find it very good at actually getting things clean. Best bet is just regular old detergent. I’ve heard that by washing the dirt off outdoor clothing it actually helps to expose the membrane of the coat and allow it to repel water better and breathe.

  5. As I remember we had a really nice dry stretch from mid April to mid May last year. This kept what was left of the snow intact. Consistent rain and warm dew points like this past weekend will destroy the snow at a rapid pace. It is looking like more rain coming late this week. Get out there while the getting is good.
  6. My season was pretty good with a little bad. I'd give it a solid B. I had an A but and failed the midterm but I aced the final exam! Started out extremely well with October turns down Wildcat on natural snow. I managed to make it out to Dutch hill in early December on a great base. Skied Mount Snow the day before Thanksgiving, found fresh boot deep snow all over the place and had some sweet runs in the woods. Had a pretty epic two days at Smugglers Notch and Bolton Valley in early december with good friends. Probably two of the better December days I've ever had in the east. I had some great days with my son and daughter both together and separately. Took my daughter for her time at Wachusett in December and she had a blast. She also made some big improvements at the local hill and it really showed on our late season trip to Jay. My son and I did a sweet trip to the MRV mid March and found just fantastic condition all around. My son also did three IFSA events this season including the finals on the face chutes at Jay. I was pretty proud watching him compete. I had a solid stretch of skiing with both family and good friends including xwhaler from late February through early April. Skied 12 days up in vermont during that stretch and only a couple of the days were marginal. I finished the season at Jay Peak for a nice long weekend. The middle of the ski season sucked for me but the end made up for it. I only got a few powder days in and not enough spring corn days. I spent much of the heart of winter skiing groomers. But I got to ski with my family a ton so it was all that bad. For next year I want to be in better shape, pick a good preseason workout routine and stick with it. My goal is also to get back to airing things like rocks, jumps and cliffs. I have lost my confidence somewhere recently and I'd like to get it back. Maybe this is part of getting in better shape for me. I hope I can get out at least a few more times whether it is skinning or riding the lift at Killington but we will see what happens, not many days or snow left to ski!
  7. Up at Whaleback yesterday to judge the IFSA jr freeride comp. My son was in the comp and did fairly well despite middle of the night throwing up. Kids was a trooper, skiing all day. I did get out for some runs later in the day. Cover wasn’t great but the skiing was fun. Great little mountain with lots of character. Jawbone. Blowhole. Beluga.

  8. Fantastic spot yeti! Incredible how there is so much snow within an hour of me but I choose to destroy my skis at Berkshire East. Starting a thread up about skiing Nelsap areas is a great idea as well. Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports
  9. I wasn’t able to make it out this past weekend so I started my season with a nice 2100’ skin and ski of Wildcat. Trip up was pretty easy up polecat. The ski down was a lot of fun. Nice soft spring skiing down lynx. Felt like a day in mid April. Natural was pretty deep in places. Great way to start the season for me. Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports
  10. Too bad. I had hoped to actually ski there this year! Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports
  11. Wish I had my skis! I could skin up Wildcat tomorrow! Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports

  14. Ah Magic.... I really don’t ski there nearly enough living so close. Some truly great skiing there. I think you bought into magic at the best time for you. With the new green Peak chair going in you should have some nice options over there. Vertigo and Mystery sometimes aren’t groomed but aren’t super steep and would offer a nice next step. On the west side talisman is a nice steeper groomer, though I’m not sure the last time I skied it when it was actually groomed. Broomstick to heart of the magician might be a nice last step. Broomstick is narrow but negotiable and heart isn’t overly steep. But in reality if you bought a pass at Magic you gotta just go for it. Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  15. Hit the east snowfields a couple days in the last week. If you haven’t been up there you should give it a try. Snow is pretty incredible this time of year. Drive up the autoroad was spectacular as always. Most of the skiers parked near the top to access either great gulf or the upper part of east snowfields. I chose to spot I’ve been to a couple times off the Huntington Ravine trail. Easy ten minute walk from the car and I was on snow. Today I drove further up be road to the larger snowfield. Weather wasn’t as nice as Friday but the skiing was still pretty good. There is a ton of snow up there still. Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
