yesterday we rolled up to the parking lot at stowe, for what would turn out to be the best day of the season. they report 3-6 inches of new which was about right on the trails, but is quite often the case most of that snow ended up in the woods. It was enough snow in the woods that there was no hint of hard base underneath IE it skied bottomless.
We could have called this video the best opening 2 hours at stowe this year. bottomless powder with nobody skiing.
While I was working for 2 hours the "eriks" went out and shredded some inbound pow. Photo by Epic.
Erik the roomie is glad noone else showed up
Lookout for Air
all this year we have been eyeing up some out of bounds potentially deadly chutes. The first one is roughly 45 degrees and helds lots of snow. Deskinning zone I am pretty stoked.

Slash 45 degree face with un tracked powder pretty freaking amazing really
