I stopped into the Octagon at the top of the quad at Stowe last Wednesday about 10:30 a.m. for a warmup. It was about zero F and windy, and I met a skier, about 60 y.o., who had skinned all the way to the top. I didn't think to ask him his route or when he started, but it had to be well over 2,000 vert, and several miles in brutal weather. I was amazed. Do many people do this? He says he hasn't bouight a lift ticket in years.
