Back from Quebec City I was ready to check out all the fresh snow that dropped onto Vermont while I was gone. For my ninth day of the season I was able to ski some new terrain at Burke Mountain. They opened up the lower mountain as well as lower Willoughby on the upper mountain.

There are still limited runs because the weather hasn’t been cooperating. However conditions on Upper and Lower Warren Way and Upper Willoughby were extra dreamy today. Plus the mountain was almost empty, so it was straight to chair every time. I enjoyed 14 runs before calling it a day.

About “Stoked! Jan’s Ski Blog”

I’ve spent my entire life living in cities, where I was able to urban, distance and aggressive skate all year long. In December of 2017 I moved to rural Vermont and found myself in the dead of winter, with snow all around me. Winters in Vermont are long and harsh, making skating nearly impossible 4-5 months out of the year. I live 2.5 hours from the nearest city and an hour from the nearest trails, making skating even in the summer much less frequent then I was used to.

Something needed to supplement my skating during the off season, so I took up skiing on January 2nd of 2019. From the moment I put on skis, I was hooked! Skiing gives me the exact same feeling I get from urban skating. Through skiing I am able to replicate the feel of carving around on city streets and playing on whatever obstacles catch your eye. This blog chronicles my stoke on skiing during my skating off season.
