Ski Tube

With our anticipated Friday-Saturday storm still gathering strength over the Carolinas, it seemed like a good time to troll You Tube for some down-home, backroads Vermont ski videos.

These two clips show the varied styles and approaches people bring to snowsports — from balls-to-the-wall backflips to quiet backcountry powder turns. They represent opposite ends of a spectrum that makes snowboarding, skiing and telemarking not only irresistibly fun, but also expressions of individuality.

Let's start with the quiet backcountry powder clip, shot in December on the Moretown Gap road. Then, if you’re so inclined, turn your computer volume to 11 and jam out to the backyard huckfest in clip No. 2.
