Pics and possible vid will come at the end, and will be updated daily.
1st day, the 20th: First time to Jay and the resort is reporting a reasonable 2-3 inches, but as their website says, that wind drifted deeeeeeep in the glades. No snow but solely ice on the trails, yet in the glades I was constantly hitting untouched half a foot and even as deep as a foot in places. Explored the place boundary to boundary, found some "secret stashes" of mine, Andre's Paradise at 9 AM, the first run of the day, was definitely run of the day with a good 5 or 6 inches of untracked all the way down. Tuckerman's and the Face chutes are closed, which I was definitely looking to hit so hopefully they'll open before I leave. Also, the ridge looks really sketchy atm so I hope it's better than it currently appears cause I'm looking to hit that. So, it was great snow till about 11-12, and quickly took a change for the worse and was exposed down to its rainy icy layer. The entire mountain (except for the secret stash :) ) became very very icy, even in the woods (all the steeper woods at least).
2nd day, the 21st: Wow, overall fantastic day. Tons of snow even though they're only reporting a single inch. Was finding fresh snow everywhere, every run. Groomers were a mess by 2 though, and all tracked glades were bad by 2 also. Skied some random treed area between the Face Chutes and Tuckerman's in a foot plus of fresh snow with 2 guys I met, but the trees were so tight it was some really techinical terrain. Then 2 straight runs of Face Chutes in a fresh 4-6 inches onto St George's Prayer. Face Chutes were never skied besides by me three times and a patroller, so there only 4 or so tracks down the deep snow. Perhaps it's the first 3 or 4 turns thats about 35-40 degrees and tight with dangerous fall consequences. After that, it's wide and great snow and perhaps 30 degrees.
So far a great 2 days, and those pics are to come as well as the rest of the days. Then its off to Tremblant for 3 more days and Ill get another TR possibly for that.
