Zipper Lines in the Moguls

Zipper Lines Through the Moguls
That’s how we roll in Ski Town USA:

We’re getting hammered again today.
Poor Al Gore, he hates all that snow!

I consider myself to be an above avergae skier. Skiing for about 20 years now, I used to work at Waterville Valley, but one thing I can't do, is mogul ski.

Those bumps just eat me up.

Up here in the Northeast, Killington is already open. Ski's are freshly tuned and ready to go!

However, I just bought a snowmobile, which will interfere with how much skiing I do. But it's all good.

Bring on the snow!

I imagine your bumps are much more icy and, therefore, more challenging than our bumps. On the rare occasion when our bumps get icy, I’m more likely to avoid them.

Locals around here would take that snowmobile out to the backcountry for some really good powder skiing and/or riding. The smart ones bring avalanche gear.

Our favorite activity (inbounds or out) is skiing champagne powder in the trees. Waist deep is common, chest deep happens from time to time. Our snow is so dry that the snow often swirls around your backside and fills in your tracks as if you were never there. There are times when you literally need a snorkel to breathe -- no joke.

Skiing the bumps is good training for skiing the trees. The bumps dictate your turns and so do the trees. But, the trees are far less forgiving than the bumps. I find the bumps give me a better workout. They also provide more of a mental challenge. And, they’re just more fun.

If you’ve never skied the west, you should give it a try.

But, it’s all good! Have fun!
