Exploring some Vermont backcountry

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

A friend and I did some touring & skiing in Vermont over President's day weekend, first at Ascutney on Sunday and then to Big Jay on Monday. It was our first time at Ascutney and man was it fun. Overall I was impressed with the terrain options and the snowpack it was holding. Of course, it's sad to see a resort with that much potential not operating but I can't complain about the great (and free) skiing that has unveiled itself for AT enthusiasts. Hopefully 'Scutney will be back up and running in good time (I hear rumors it will be).

 

Big Jay is, of course, a staple in the VT backcountry and rarely disappoints when the gettin' is good. We made a short video of our 2 day trip to VT as part of a web series that covers our season-long chase for powder turns. Enjoy!

Some nice gopro angles, especially at Ascutney when shooting each other with cam on pole.  I have been wanting to skin Ascutney since they closed the place.  Some nice terrain there for sure.  Big Jay is fun too and can get super deep on top.

 

Thanks for posting your video.

Great vid.  I appreciate folks that take the time to make their GoPro edits watchable.

I love when people share stuff like this . Often people think I'm not good enough why would anyone want to watch. I enjoy seeing non pro skiers similar to myself to see what I need to check out next . After seeing this im definitly going to jay peak next year , I have been to everywhere in Vermont but there . It's time I change that.
