BURTON HI-FIVE MITT

Its difficult to find gloves with a good balance of dexterity and warmth.

POWDER PRESENTS

The mountains in northern Vermont were hammered with a very significant up-slope snow event last night. Snow fell at rates of up to 2″ per hour. The Jay Peak area got hit the hardest with almost two feet over night! The snow was super light and induced many White Chambers®.

Avoiding the crowds, we dipped into many high elevation nooks and crannies in search of a powder harvest fit for a president.
