Trip dates: Friday, February 19, 2016 12:00 AM to Sunday, February 21, 2016 12:00 AM

Intermediate to advanced backcountry skiing and telemarking around Mt Mansfield and Stowe, Vt. We will explore some of the famous but not overly visited backcountry trails on Mt. Mansfield and maybe do some exploring along the Catamount Trail. Expect over a thousand feet of vertical (both up and down) and some awesome glade skiing on the way down. Most of the route down is pretty moderate (and the part that isn't can be sidestepped), but the trip definitely requires backcountry tele-gear (3 pin or above), and not just backcountry nordic (light touring) skis, to be much fun. Our main group will stay at a country inn in Stowe (probably Edson Hill Manor), but we will make arrangements for a subgroup to stay at a local ski hostel in Stowe for those that want to save money.
