    Avalanche Pass ski video

    Skied Avalanche Pass yesterday (2/14). The conditions were surprisingly good.

    Click here to read a detailed report on the snow cover and to watch my helmet-cam video of descending Avy Pass.

    Excellent. I haven't been to the Adirondacks avy pass in the winter in a while. Loved the video.

    Thanks,

    Thanks for the video. Did you think conditions were slow or fast?

    Glad you enjoyed the video. I'd say the trail was semi-fast as there wasn't any powder, but it wasn't icy.

    Nice. I haven't been to Avalanche Lake in years, and never in the winter. What kind of ski equipment were you using?

    Sorry for not replying earlier, but I didn't see the responses until today. I was skiing Madshus Epochs, which used to be Karhu's 10th Mountain Division--a light tele ski with fish scales. Garmont Excursion boots and Targa bindings. This is a great setup for Avy Pass, Jackrabbit and similar trails.

    Conditions seemed pretty slow that day, but they have changed since and are changing now as I type.
