When you think of Vermont snowboarding, it’s likely that your mind drifts to long, undulating groomers and powder-clogged tree runs. But when you exit the resorts and head into the locales surrounding them, the Green Mountain State is a treasure trove of nooks and crannies filled with spots; you just have to have the impetus to look around, and of course, a little local’s knowledge doesn’t hurt. Two-lane roads that wind alongside rivers and through quintessential New England small towns can lead you to some very unique locations, rife with snowboarding opportunity.
Rome AM rider, Casey Savage, grew up in Cavendish, Vermont, just a stone’s throw from Okemo Mountain. Last winter, alongside Nate Haust, Max Lyons, and filmer Devin Bernard, he hit spots all around his hometown and Homegrown is the result.
From Rome Snowboards:
If you’re from the Green Mountain State you’re aware of the terrain available to ride outside of the mountains. With the only major ‘city’ boasting a population of less than 50,000 people, Vermont’s soul stems from backwoods towns. Vermont born and raised, Rome AM rider Casey Savage embodies the true Vermont spirit.
Rome followed Casey around his hometown of Cavendish, VT looking for some unique spots. Check out all the backwoods action to fully understand why Casey Savage is truly Home Grown.
