The cutting edge of backcountry skiing
STOWE- Where is the cutting edge of backcountry skiing in Vermont now? Don’t just follow tracks, learn the secrets of where to go, hear about the latest community-supported skiing around the Northeast, and learn about backcountry gear innovations.
On Thursday, January 9, at 6:30 pm, Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum’s monthly Red Bench Series is hosting a discussion with leaders in the Northeast’s backcountry skiing and riding community, moderated by backcountry skiing guidebook author David Goodman
Join in for a conversation with backcountry advocates. Panelists include Zac Freeman, a moving force in Vermont’s burgeoning glade zones movement and spokesperson for Rochester/Randolph Area Sport Trail Alliance; Louise Lintilhac, scribe, skier, and managing editor of Backcountry magazine; Scott Seward, split boarder and senior design engineer at Burton Snowboards; and Tyler Ray, “Granite Chief” and founder of Granite Backcountry Alliance, New Hampshire’s leading backcountry skiing organization. Moderator Goodman is the author of “Best Backcountry Skiing in the Northeast.”
Doors to the museum will open at 6 pm and guests are invited to enjoy the exhibits and socialize. Craft beer provided by series sponsor Von Trapp Brewing, wine, and cider will be available. A $10 entry donation helps support the museum’s mission to “Collect, Preserve and Celebrate Vermont’s Skiing and Snowboarding Heritage.” Additional sponsors include Sisler Builders and Vermont Ski + Ride magazine.
