    Congratulations Spencer Crispe - first person to ski all 110 Vermont major mountains

    Congratulations to Spencer Crispe for being the first known person to climb up and ski down all 110 major mountain in Vermont (above 3000').

    He finished on January 5, 2020, and it took him 4 winters using these criteria: Climbing to the accepted summit of all 110, during the Calendar winter, skiing down to a road or trailhead - only rarely ever removing skis because of unskiable terrain, like ice cliffs, impenetrable thick growth or deep brook gullies. I have climbed most of the Vermont 3ks and some of those would be very tough to ski.

    Way to go on an extraordinary accomplishment!

    Spencer and his accomplishments are something else. Nice guy to boot.

    Thanks a lot!!!!
    Some mountains were unsurpassed in awfulness to try to ski; others were some of the best most heavenly powder turns of my life. Great to ski 110 mountains without having spent a dime on a lift ticket!
