Yet not a single pic of a trail. Almost looks like cross country skiing. You can barely even move. Exposed branches/trees every 3 feet. Looks like Hiking required in one of the pics so it's not even lift serviced some of those pics.

Honestly those pics remind me of mountain creek earlier in the season whey had that little 5 foot wide patch of ski to ski on. lol You're just shuffling back and forth. Skiing powder in those trees is kind of like when they leave the edge of a trail with pow on it. and groom the rest It sucks. Completely different type of powder skiing. Also,You wouldn't want to go as wide with a ski because you need quick edge to edge transition since you're side steeping half the time.

Why not take some pics of the trails while you were there and show off all that good powder? I mean you could still show the woods. What resort is that? Show the trails. Is it because there are simply too many skiers to get powder on the trails? East coast crowding and lack of acreage/terrain? Wide open pow out west equals powder for longer. Is it because there's too much wind and the trails don't hold the powder? Not enough acreage to skier ratio? Another reason snow ridge/out west is better.

It's not that hard

If you're going to show tree skiing at least show descent tree sking out west(ALBEIGT DANGEROUS) where they can really haul ass because the trees are farther apart.

Reponse to post below:
ahaha....yeah NVT is going to clue me in? That could be jay peak, stowe or any other resort. How about labeling it backcountry Einstein. lmao Anyway, it's the same stuff you'd see in the woods at any resort in nvt anyway. Point is the same.

Skunkapee is real butthurt. Incredible conditions?  Yeah for cross country skiing it's incredible. ahaha THat's sad that that's considered incredible for vermont. Look at the personal attacks calling me an a-hole when I was simply talking about pics that have nothing to do with him. Why do you even care what I think? Maybe because I'm hitting the nail on the head when it comes to NVT and the ENTIRE EAST COAST. A dirt road? hahaha...so I guess then you don't ski any trails at all. Since they're "dirt roads". No magic mountain for you and who cares if a mountain grooms all it's trails since it's "dirt roads". I never said it didn't snow in vermont...wtf? lol Hey skunkapee at least you're giving me a face shot since there's none in the pics. LOL!

A few inches of powder going like 5mph in tight trees where you can barely move....hey just call it what it is....cross country down hill in a few inches of powder. It's fine to have fun in that if you want, but don't go calling that amazing. That's laughable. Nevermind all the hazards under the light "backcountry"(a joke) snowpack there. I like the sensation of soft snow, not hitting rocks when you try to take a hard turn to give yourself a face shot.

THIS is phenomenal, not the b.s. posted above.

 Wide open trail in B.C. in the REAL BACKCOUNTRY. NOT THAT LAME ASS WOODS CRAP

Boy you're fucking dense. Maybe the title of the thread would clue you in this wasn't a resort

Ok, I held back for a while, but wow you are a real fucking asshole. This is a picture of incredible conditions, and you want a picture of a wide open dirt road with some snow on it, and just complain in your usual sour tone. You don't know shit about powder. IT SNOWED IN VERMONT. DEAL WITH IT. I'd face shot you with it in a second.

The spacing looks pretty sweet to me.  What I've seen of trees in VT (which admittedly isn't that much) is that they do seem more widely spaced than in the Adks.

Pow the guy just posted some incredibly cool stuff. Maybe let some of us have a shot at checking them out before you say they suck.
