Catching up with the Skiershop Team

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!

March Roaring In Like a Lion

I’ll be honest; the past two seasons have been the worst in terms of March snowstorms I have ever witnessed.  In 2009 Stowe mustered around 10 inches, and last year (2010) it was even less than that. 

So it goes without saying that recent history wasn’t in our favor this season, but in typical weather fashion the patterns changed.  Weather experts warned that while we may get some liquid blue in the mix, March and April should provide some snowy outbursts…do they have a crystal ball or something because they were right on this past week!

As the crowds dissipated this past Sunday, a rainy wet weekend miraculously turned into a winter wonderland.  Stowe Mountain Resort received around 2ft+, and Jay Peak a bit more, those who rolled the dice with work were rewarded and the locals chowed down on fresh pow.

Tonight we are expecting some more light snow, though Friday looks a little suspect…this is when you leave your house now and get up here!  March is starting to flex its muscles and hopefully we can stay in line for some more spring storms. 

As always if you need gear, we got you covered.
