yeah bolton mountain...some stuff onmansfield...depends what you call back country.
Dude you can't tape over tapes. The actual scotch tape inside will catch fire and explode. As this explosion happens, it well send off nuclear waste, killing millions within a 5 mile radius. Then after that, your body will give off herpes to the whole world and we will all die. Make sure to NEVER tape over.-[e]Heath
its not backcountry if its on the mountain, especially on sunday river.
theres a good amount of it in franconia notch. plus youve got mt washington area, mt mansfeild, a ton in NY, mt greylock in MA, uhhh im forgetting alot, but theres alot in NH and VT. ive got a whole book if you want some exact trails
I know in VT you can ski some nice shit at Stowe, there are backcountry gates all over and its mad easy. When you come off of the High Speed quad just hike the trail and you'll find some nice stuff. I saw the guys from meatheads filming bacj there.
there isnt any in the book i dont think, but i doubt that there is any. why would someone travel all the way to jay, ME to not ski jay? plus most everything that isnt accessable from jay is flat, as jay is the only large peak in the area.
i can tell u some others in other areas if ur interested
i was out snowmobiling around winnapasaukee and i saw some dope steep tree lines. but this was 2 years ago during that huge storm, so there probably isnt enough cover to ski them. in fact i dont even know if the sled trails are open. btu if you can just get out there and scope it out, i saw some dank shit
you dont need to be in BC to find step downs and gaps in natural terrain. just like timo^ said, you gotta make it happen. There is this rifle range in Guilderland New York, its for the military and they shoot into a river bank, this shit is vertical and we have 6 inches of heavy snow coming to over 2 feet, I hope i dont get shot.
Other than that, Ive been riding in albany, you can carve a quarterpipe out of any snowbank. The police just drive by as you do urban rails. and with the snow piling up, some really big urban drops are developing.
u just gotta get creative with what ya got and look for anything possible.. i ski at a small resort in roch. ny and during a pow day my dads friend ventured off in the woods off of this closed trail and found a sick spine in the woods, it felt pretty BC haha
long story short he overshot. tried to finger a girl wearing a skirt in the movies, but overshot and got the pooper. then proceeded to wipe the poopy finger on the friend next to him.
I say we put more messages on the records. "Kill the band, kill your parents, then yourself, ok!? Make sure you get your whole head in front of the shotgun. Thank you for calling! Thank you for calling!"
In North Western MA there is the Thunderbolt trail on Mt. Greylock. I've never done it, but it is BC in so much as you got to hike to ski it. Check out the Meathead movie Epoch it features the mountain and the history of North American skiing, most of started here so that's pretty cool.
tunderbolt is so much fun! besides that theres jay of course, tucks (which is pretty extreme), the chin at stowe and stuff off of there, and the slides at whiteface. Also guys if you didnt know it New England has the most defunked ski "resorts" in the country. Actually NY has the most if you can believe that. I cant tell you how many times my friends and I have skied old ski places. Its so much fun. You just need to be creative and open minded really

A lot of the good New England backcountry and out of bounds stuff is kept secret by locals so flatlanders either don't hurt themselves or over populate and ruin it. No offense, but it drives me nuts when some jackass from Jersey hikes up the Chin and you have to help him out. Thankfully, plain view stuff like the Chin keeps non-locals out of the stashes.
Become friends w/a local and eventually you'll find the good stuff.
If you want more tame, popular stuff, check out David Goodman's 2 Backcountry Skiing Adventures books. There's one for NY/VT and another for Maine/NH. A majority of the stuff in there is for touring, but it'll give you a good place to start.
You can also try Google.
2 billion dollars...sir, I'd handle my grandpa's balls for 2 billion dollars.
Jay's easiest BC is in the zone marked with yellow stripes on the map -- ie where they want to develop the glades far skier's left. It's alright but the flats are a pain in the ass. You can hike the ridge too but it's rarely worth it. Better off in the 'Dacks.
