This weekends Tree TRONNIng session @ stowe

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

the video will be up roughly at 9 but I want to go skiing so no waiting for it to load.

 

Stowe is nearly 100 percent open and most of the woods are skiing nicely right now. Still really only recommended for experienced tree ninjas ,on fat skis with helmets to minimize the affect of skiing in some of existing thin cover.

 

With that said for a mountain that right now has some really icey trails stowe off piste is anything but, soft edgeable chaulk with 10-12 inches of fresh snow where people havent skied in the past week, You just got to figure out the maze to get the good snow.

"You just got to figure out the maze" could be a mighty good signature.

the wind affected snow was alittle to much for kenja's but my katana loved it. The good is this former D1 racer is probably not going to get the wimpy kenjas now.

Josh, looks like ;you need a full face helmet for that, and perhaps some body armour as well.

 

Ski good, or eat wood.

body armor is on the list of stuff I want but a full face(which I own)  is more hassle than it is worth. I never wear my cause its more dangerous IMO.

 

cons to the full face

 

face guards can get caught and jerk your neck in ways that are probably not good for it, broken jaw or cheek bone is not as bad as a broken neck. Hopefully none of the above.

they cause goggles to fog

pain in the ass to hike with

 

thanks for the feedback guys, and I d love to show you guys the more open(by stowe standards) woods if anyone come up here. helmets and rockered skis are HIGHLY recommended ;).
