This Might Be the East Coast Edit of the Year // Ski Industry News
You’ve likely been hearing from us and ski blogs everywhere that the season on the East Coast has been pretty epic. Just how good has it been though? The locals will tell you we haven’t had this much snow in years. Lines and chutes at Stowe that are only skiable on good snow years, were totally covered for months. As you might expect, East Coast skiers have been taking full advantage of the situation, cranking out edit after edit of powdery, snow covered footage.
One of our favorites on the year has to be the winner of the University of Vermont’s annual UVM Ski and Snowboard Club’s Homegrown Film Competition. In this four and a half minute ditty, local rippers Marcus Wadlington and Brooks Curran put their heads down and get to work on numerous backcountry lines on Mt. Mansfield and in Smuggler’s Notch. As a Stowe local, there’s nothing to do but praise these two for their ambitious effort, checking off the mountain’s hardest lines like items off a grocery list. West Coasters on the other hand are probably thinking something along the lines of, “Wait, that’s on the East Coast?” Regardless of geography, skiers everywhere are likely to agree that the East Coast had a hell of a year, and edits like this one will be getting played all Summer as we wait to see what next season holds!
