Alba Adventures- Season 3 EP3 - Acceptance - Pico, VT 2/20

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

 

This has been arguably one of the hardest winter seasons for the East ever as many of you know. From Arctic temps of -21F to 60F all in one day; it has been hard for many of East coast skiers and riders to not be sad or depressed due to this. 

 

Each and every day we feel for the people that earn their living through winter, through snow.  We also wonder if any of our favorite runs or mountains will open; or if they can recover from the effects of the warmest El Nino ever. 

 

It's been tough to remain motivated to ski and ride this winter given the fickle weather we have been having but, we are thankful for the days we have had. The management at Killington and Pico have been working round the clock to help their patrons, make snow and be sure we have a winter. I know the same applies for all the mountains on the East.

 

We are also thankful to have met and become friends with the Erlandsens who seem to make the best of everything. Meeting up with them over the Presidents week changed our impression of what it means to have a good time. As long as you have some snow, and you can ski on it, that is sometimes all it takes. 

 

Please do take the time to watch our latest webisode titled "Acceptance". Accepting whatever this Winter has given, will bring and making the best of it. 

 

Thank you Kirsten and family.

,Nicely done.  Good telemark skiers in that video.  You're videos are the most authentic kind of promotion skiing and a ski area could ask for!

Wonderful!  You have outdone yourself for the fun factor!

 

As we also found at Blue Knob that day for the Mid-Atlantic Gathering, doesn't need much snow to have a very fun day when there is good company.

Thank you EpicSKi Team again for putting our story up on the carousel..

Thank you.. 

 

 

 

 I wanted to add this.. Each of our videos from this year has a message in case you have not noticed ;) 

The ice melting at the start represents the tears of Vermont. You will also notice a vignetted filter - that is supposed to resemble my eye or an eye looking .. It's subtle. Also, the colors I made more dreamy.. Indicating that it can be so much fun that its surreal. Anyway, things we were discussing at 2AM when we edited this.

Thank you.. Please feel free to share the video with your friends or the link to this forum. 

 

We had to sit this weekend out, Nevada our daughter was really sick Thursday-Yesterday. She is doing much better now but, missed another weekend on being on some snow. Weird thing is that NYC it feels like May already.  People are not thinking about skiing when we really need them to.

 

I hope to catch you on one of the mountains - make some turns - and who knows, maybe you can be on one of our edits.   Agree on Pico. It's really special to us.

Glad to hear your daughter is feeling better!

It's the same in Boston- people are out jogging in t-shirts, yet there is potentially so much left of ski season ! I'm hoping for a miracle in March.

I will be back at Pico for sure- my boyfriend and I are in love with the mountain. I'll link my friends to your videos!

Cheers from Massachusetts !!
