    Great write up. You captured the contrasting traits between the towns, schools and trails.

    Great Trip Report.....

    .....enjoyed your viewpoint on the riding as well as the different groups in VT....I rarely think of that when visiting VT.....also liked the pictures of Ascutney and your ski trip after the early snowstorm....Ride On!
    There are two paths you can go by but in the long run........

    The power of suggestion: I read your post on Friday and mentioned to a friend that I hadn't been to Millstone this year and really wanted to ride the new trails. He mentioned it to another friend, and Saturday morning I got the call that they were going. So off we went to enjoy a beautiful day with pretty nice conditions. ZSC and the Harringtons were all I had hoped for; super fun and challenging. One of the guys and I squeezed in a final lap on Rollercoaster to hit all the droplets missed due to turning onto ZSC on the initial run.

    Thanks for posting.

    I rode there on Saturday with a dozen riders. What a great place - pure fun with a few sphincter-puckering descents thrown in.

    Here's the video I shot.
