I had no chance of keeping up as he skinned right up Tuckerman trail. That is the way to travel, I would love to get one, but it did get me thinking of possibly doing my own with one of my older boards I have hanging around. When "Spring" finally arrives up there it's going to be good well into May, but for now there is still plenty of loose powder to be had.
Would love to see some of that vid. Looks like the Tucks season will be backed up a few weeks? I know that's happening all over VT. Killington was mid Feb conditions on Saturday.

Excuse my ignorance of Tuckerman and splitting (I plan to get into the former this year, and the latter next). Can you skin to the top? Or is it just the access trail? I got the impression that it was too vertical not to boot it.
