First Turns of the Season…

It’s late October in Vermont, a time when Old Man Winter starts to come around again after several months away. And while the Old Man might not be settling in for the winter season just yet, it sure is fun to grab the skis again, head up into the hills, and slide around on the nice coat of early season snow he recently laid down for us. – Brian

Foliage Skiing on ESPN

While there may not be much more than fallen leaves covering the valleys, colder temps have enabled snow to fall in our local mountains several times already this month. With good color still clinging to the hardwood trees, it’s a real treat to out in the snow this time of year. Foliage skiing, as we tend to call it around here, has become an annual pastime…seasonally appropriate adventure at its best. We recently published a short writeup and photo essay on the subject on ESPN.com. You can check it out HERE.
Happy fall!

– Brian and Emily

Photo of the Month – October: Making Hay

Exploring a friend’s fields close to home in the Green Mountains… This was the last cut of hay on the fields for the season. We often ride just the perimeter of these fields, en route to a larger network of local trails, but the open fields can occasionally make for some great adventure, too.

The Ski Season Begins!

The first significant snow-producing nor’easter of the 2010-11 season dumped 10-30+″ of heavy snow over our highest mountain areas of the Northeast this past weekend (VT’s Greens and NY’s Adirondacks, especially), and skiers have been out since Friday morning(10/15) embracing the return of our good friend Old Man Winter. Below are a couple of images we captured that illustrate the incredible contrast between the world at base elevation in Vermont (approx. 1800′) and the winter wonderland above (2000′ higher) along Vermont’s Green Mountain divide. For more images from the storm, head to our skiing website, AdventureSkier.com, where we posted two batches of photos from the storm and skiing this past week in Vermont: LINK 1 and LINK 2

Yes, the photo above is real – captured on Saturday, Oct 16 close to our home in Vermont!

Thank you Old Man Winter for a good dose of what’s to come in the months ahead.

The Atlantic Hurricane Season

The first named storms of the Atlantic’s tropical storm/hurricane season were born this week, and although the storms named Ana and Claudette have already pittered out, a storm named Bill has developed into a powerful Cat 3/4 hurricane.. Take a look at this satellite loop from the National Hurricane Center. Let’s hope storms like Bill, and those that follow, stay out to sea and do nothing but generate fun swells for Carribean and east coast surfers…

Ski It While You Can!

Weeks of surfing beautiful ocean waves on the coast and running/biking through the brilliant colors of fall in the mountains were capped this week by our first ski day of the season.  By sunrise on Wednesday 10/22, 2-3″ of October snow had blanketed our local mountains – just enough to make our favorite low-angle, moss-laden, rock-free ski runs skiable. We climbed and skied for about five hours…caught up with some great friends…and probably logged a casual 5000′ vertical.

It was a real treat be back on the skis again… Emily is “quite pleased”. If the big brown stripes on the woolly catepillars are any indication, we are in for another snowy winter.

Ski it while you can!

Brian and Emily
