Skied the Hays Brook Truck Trail today on about eight inches of light, fluffy powder. Except for a few scrapes (no base to speak of), conditions were ideal. Toward the end of the trail there is some blowdown, including one huge tree that must be gone around. Go left when you reach it.

Click here to read my review of David Goodman's Best Backcountry Skiing in the Northeast, a revision of his cult classic.The 50 trips include Mount Marcy, Wright Peak, Avalanche Pass, and the Jackrabbit Trail. There also are suggestions for three trips in Johns Brook Valley, including Bennies Brook Slide. Not sure how Adirondack skiers feel about having that appear in a guidebook.
