What you'll do

- We will start off our day meeting at Blue Bike Caffe, where we will go over gear and check in with every one before the day. We will talk about skinning technique and conditions and then we will head out to the location that we will be skinning/ split-boarding throughout the day. We will get to enjoy making beautiful powder turns amongst the hard woods that make Vermont’s back country so special.

Nick

I am co-owner of Lynx Mountain Guides of Vermont and have been guiding skiing and split-boarding for eight years now. I graduated college with a degree in Outdoor Education and Adventure Leadership. Throughout the years, I have participated and led many ski trips all over the country; the Sawtooth Mountains in Idaho, in Hanes/Juno Alaska, in the pacific northwest, and trips to Mount Katahdin here on the east coast. I have continued to further my education in avalanche terrain and in alpine environments.

What's included

Equipment
Rentals - we have some rentals that are available but they are limited. We have split-boards, poles and some skis

Where you'll be

Nestled in northern Vermont’s Green Mountains, near Jay, is Big Jay State Forest where we will be able to choose from four different peaks and many different aspects to get the best possible skiing and riding that conditions allow.

Guest safety

Outdoor activities carry risks, and you may be exposed to dangerous situations as part of this experience. Make sure you can participate safely given your abilities and the conditions (such as location, weather, and equipment).

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 5 guests ages 14 and up can attend.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

What to bring

sunglasses and hat

More tips

Be sure to dress appropriately- wear synthetic clothing that wicks sweat and be sure to have multiple layers so you can thermal regulate throughout the day.
