Winter is coming back to the mountains in Vermont after a brief hiatus. And while the near-constant flurries isn't adding up to feet yet (don't we wish), it is making the mountains skiable once again. Here is a quick shot from Sunday's outing, in which a New England favorite, "fast grass" was in full effect. Seriously fun skiing, you just didn't want to fall. Plus, I got to ski some new skis. I know what you're thinking, "not the best day for new skis!" Unless of course you are talking about the new Marquette Backcountry boards. 140cm long. 130mm waist. These things own marginal conditions, and I'm thinking they'll be pretty fun on some backdoor powder stashes later in the season. Check 'em out online. In other news, the iRide Adventures/MTBRacenews.com team is coming together for the 2010/11 season. Looks like we'll be ripping it up all over the country come springtime. Stay tuned to the blog for more backcountry ski adventures/photos and some fun winter training tips coming soon.
