This season March in Vermont delivered a memorable meltdown. However there is still plenty of snow out west and South America/Mt. Hood are right around the corner… So to celebrate the historic meltdown, Skiershop has slashed all prices on all winter gear and outerwear.
This week winter seems to be making a slight comeback in Stowe, VT. While it would have been nice before the 80 degree meltdown, we’re grateful for some fluffy turns before we go back to spring corn. Here’s an edit from Skiershop Team Rider Louise Lintilhac aka “Weeze,” filmed during the major storm that graced our slopes in February. Maybe we have one sneaky big one coming in April… we can only hope.
It has been a busy past few weeks of traveling, snowstorms, and then meltdowns… Through it all the Skiershop Team has been absolutely crushing it and having a blast at the same time. Here’s a quick recap on what has been going down – we at Skiershop couldn’t be prouder of our riders this season!
Our dynamic female duo of Louise Lintilhac and Ashley Maxfield took their skills to the Subaru North American Freeskiing Championships in Snowbird, Utah. Ashley took home 7th place, and unfortunately Weeze took home a black eye. The pictures looked scary, and we are glad that she is ok. Next up is Kirkwood, beginning April 4, 2012.
On the jib side, Tyler Duncan and Will Hibbs recently returned from the Dumont Cup at Sunday River, ME where they both made the semi-finals – yeah boys!
On the local level. Skiershop Riders Noah Ranallo and Colby Vavolotis continued to dominate the Ski The East Freeride Tour. Following the tour’s final stop at Jay Peak, VT, Valvolotis emerged victourous as the tour winner. For Ranallo, the Jay Peak competition marked the second time he won the Cliff Huckstable Big Air Award – Congrats boys!

We recently returned from skiing powder in Jackson Hole with the Powder Magazine crew, and we still have Wyoming on the mind. In case you missed it, here is KGB productions’ WYoming Triumph Episode 11 – Yellowstone Part 1.
Skiershop Team Riders, Ski Future, and CL Photo teamed up this past Tuesday in Stowe, VT to tee off what some of the riders called the biggest jump they have ever hit. Constructing a kicker near Stowe, the crew threw down a session prior to the expected mid-week warm up (it’s been 60 degrees in valleys the past two days). Here are a few photos from Christopher Lisle Photography – nice work boys! – Erme

For years I’ve been an avid reader of Powder Magazine and perused the buyer’s guide in the season’s first issue. Even as a reader, Powder Magazine’s ski taste (not test) seemed to operate on a looser schedule – how could it not, you are in Jackson Hole with some of the raddest people in the ski industry.
Sitting on the flight out of Jackson Friday morning it all started to set it, well at least after the hangover subsided from the Powder Week closing party. This was one of the most fun weeks I’ve ever had. It was my first time to Jackson Hole, and while I thought it would be like Alta/Snowbird I was greatly mistaken… it’s bigger, rowdier, and the sidecountry blew my mind.
Each day skiers were given a brand to ski with in the morning, then another for the afternoon. My brands were Head, Dynastar, Folsom, Scott, DPS, and Armada. Additionally one day was reserved for ASSFART – meaning “all ski something fast awesome rad together,” where skiers made as many laps as possible on the Tram, each with a different ski.
The snow kept falling all week as if it were ordered, and locals brought us to their secret gems in the sidecountry and the darkside (note no pics of that stuff, wink). It was a whirlwind week with minds hazed over from powder skiing and high fives. A big thanks goes to Powder Magazine, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Matt Hansen, Pat Sewell for winning the Captains Cup, and to all the rad people who made the week possible. Hopefully see you next year!
