SKIVT-L Digest - 4 Feb 2008 to 5 Feb 2008 (#2008-36)

At the awards ceremony after the MRV race the organizer and several others were talking about other races in the East, whether real or imaginary.


Think we could convince Stowe to host a race ever?


It could have some real vertical and be a bit more “bc” than other resort races.


How about start at the Quad base – skin up Nosedive – continue on the Toll Road all the way to the top of The Nose – descend back down from The Nose and onto The Bruce – near the bottom of the Bruce hang a right up the Overland( Underhill?) Trail, Hang a left under Dewey and traverse the Skytop – Descend the Steeple and finally skate/pole your way all the way to the Matterhorn Bar for the awards ceremony.


I think it’s less than 11miles, ~3,400+ feet of skinning, and ~4,000+ feet of descending.  This course wouldn’t interfere with normal resort operations much, wouldn’t clog up the base lodge during the day, could highlight some cool terrain like the MRV race, could have a shortened course for the Rec division (no skytop/steeple)….


Does this sound fun to anyone else?
