Jay Peak - 11/12/13 Video

Jay Peak had gotten over 2 feet of snow from the Jay Cloud, so Ted and I made a trip up. His Trip Report is here, if you're interested. I had the GoPro running and made an edit of some of the shenanigans. Then, Ted took the GoPro for another trip to Jay the following day:

Fun Times. I want to get up there again this weekend, but I don't know if that's in the cards.

Big Tupper Video

I've made a couple of GoPro edits over the past few days that have a pitifully low view count. So I'm posting them to this here blog in hopes that more people will see them. I was pretty happy with this one - skiing Big Tupper last year when it wasn't open. If you have a touring setup and a defunct ski area within driving distance, there's no reason not to sprinkle a few of these days in throughout the ski season. They're always fun, it's a novel experience, and you don't have to deal with typical resort crowds. Usually it's just some friends and their dogs:

Silverton Video

It may be 8 months after the fact, but I made a video for my Silverton day last year. Usual GoPro caveats apply - the slope was actually a lot steeper than it looks, sorry about the solo GoPro-ing with no other angles, blah blah blah. Sometimes you don't want to get too creative, you just want to ski. And we definitely did that:

Working on a Big Tupper Video now, and it looks pretty cool, too.
