Stowe Tree Skiing

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

In a couple weeks I will be heading up to Stowe for the first time and I have just recently begun to really get into glade skiing. I have heard a little about how Stowe can have really good tree runs, but I haven't really heard exactly where to go to find them. You don't have to give away you're secret stash or anything (unless you want to), and I'm a pretty decent skier, but nothing too too difficult as I really don't have that much experience skiing the trees. Really any information about the mountain would be greatly appreciated!

the thing is in couple weeks you would be lucky to be skiing any decent coverage in the woods. as off right now I am guessing you will not be skiing woods here.....but I sincerely hope I am wrong.

It's the weekend of February 8th I guess that's more than a couple weeks away... Will there still be not enough snow? I was at okemo in January last year and I was still able to find some fine snow in the trees.

cause I can predict the weather. we would need about 20-30 inches of compacted snow(50-70 inches of fresh snow will become 20-30 inches of compoacted) at the bottom of the mountain to actually be able to ski most of our woods.

Date I am going there aside, could you still let me in on some of the info about the trees just in case I go there later on?

@thetim215, there are quite a few regular posters here that are "Stowe knowledgeable".  EpicSki Members Epic, Josh Matta, freeski919 and Whiteroom are all Stowe locals.  I'm there most weekends and other random days as well (although I won't be for the Feb. 8th weekend).

 

I'd be happy to show you around, but as Josh mentioned above -- right now it would take a miracle to get things open in the trees.

Hey, thanks a lot for the nice offer, but unfortunately, being from Pennsylvania, I very rarely get up to Vermont, like two times a year if I'm lucky, and each time we try a different mountain, so the February 8th weekend is the only time I'm gonna be able to get up there.
