Last day of April

We once more turned to Nanamocamuck for a river walk. This time all the way up to Rocky Gorge and back (seven miles).

On the way out of town

I pulled over to grab this classic perspective on the way out of town Sunday. A couple of beaver lodges in the foreground, and the rock pile under significant snow up the valley. Classic spring MWV view.

Six weeks later

A return to Mittenstock, six weeks after here last – The weather was clear and warmish (low 50’s) Saturday would bring a walk, up Olivarian – a favorite of ours.

Another week of winter

Snow on Tuesday night led to 3″ of fresh dry powder on top of cold cord groom – The best runs of the season – near the best of my life. Hero snow was everywhere. Snow on Wednesday night brought 7″ of dry powder on top of the cold cord groom. Hard going – most […]


Day three this week – crossed the 300k mark for the season. Still not sure on 500 let alone another big year – It takes some time and effort to rack up that kind of vert. Cold again – and without the afternoon sun – it was hard to rally for the last hour. I […]

The grind –

First big effort to rack up the vert this week. Taking some time from work for some concentrated effort on the slopes. Cold so far this week but forecast to warm up. Despite state meets – I have been able to ski almost non-stop – right on to the lift every turn. The snow table […]

Winter at last

At last


Up and down again at King Pine. Windless with bluebird skies - the twenty-four degree temperature felt like summer.. compared to days earlier in the week. Same route - up and down slow pokey pine..


Sam is able to go for walks (short ones) so that's what we did - The trails off the bridge were polished white ice - not great, but we got up into the woods a bit and were able to let them loose and run about. They loved it. So did we.


When I ski, I have buds in. I run chubby buttons on my sleeve and the volume is at 11. Ott is the seasons hit – and my go to tunes for swishing the slopes the last few times out. This is my play list so far for the week ahead.

Up for it

After a strong day downhill on the boards yesterday (Friday) today would be uphill focused. After a day of accumulating snow and wind, today would be big blue and sunny Our folly for the day would be up Cranmore – like Gibson to Easy Street etc.. Sally remarked early out of the base “I don’t […]

UP and Down at KP

§012321184042 KP up and down #blogpost We got some human powered seasons passes at King Pine today. $50 for the season for access to the mountain for skinning as well as the X-C trails and ice skating. Not bad. Parking in the north lot at the bear lift is 20 minutes from the house and […]
