Press Rewind
A Northern Vermont Snowboarding Film

The Hill
Path + Stairs + Skateboard Ramp + Snowboard Glades
In 2013, I began work on a personal project on my family's land in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom. First, I built a manicured path up the hillside with over 100 natural cedar stairs. Then, the boys and I carried a boatload of wood up the same path and built a 16 foot wide skateboard ramp perched on a cliff halfway up the hillside. At the top of the hill is a camping area. On the other side of the hill, we cut and cleared a swath of glades for snowboarding. And what good is a glades run without some wooden jumps and a bench at the top?
