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!
