To all the skiers and riders who come to Stowe, or who are thinking of coming this year-
Many of you have probably enjoyed the woods between Goat and Midway over the years. I know I have! However, this year you'll probably see some ropes up around those woods. Please don't ignore them! A microburst hit that part of the mountain this summer, and the damage was atrocious. There is just a ton of really dangerous deadfall, and some widowmakers in there. It's just a place to steer clear of. We're talking broken legs and potential fatalities. No bueno.
