40" at Jay Peak

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

Jay got 40" since Sunday and Smuggs got 33".  What I'd do for a few extra va-k days....

I'm hoping the Catskiills recover from all the rain so I can get out a couple more times.

Man, I love Jay but it's way too far a drive from where I live (metrowest Boston) for a day trip.

Bah - do you have the vacation time?  

 

Did the day trip on 2/25 from Boston.  Left at 530, was on the mountain before 10.  Ride home sucked big time though, close to 6 hours.  It was worth it for the 5 inches that day....

 

If I could come up with any reasonable way to be out of the office this week I would do it in a heartbeat.  Was on vacation all last week and am headed to Atlantic City this Friday, so just can't do it.

 

I say deal with it and go ski the biggest 24 hour storm in history.

 

Or spend $20 and spend the night at Grandpa Ray's or whatever the place is....  

 

And - it looks like there is another storm in the works...

Was it cool and dry snow or warm and wet?  March cement might not be so much fun.  Looks like it was cold last night but warming up fast..

There's a short video up on the JP facebook page taken yesterday afternoon - looks pretty light and fluffy.  And then it snowed 20 more inches...

Plattekill got 14" yesterday and was open today for one of their Powder Daize, though I didn't find this out until it was too late for me to get up there.

Stowe was nuts today. I had one of the top 5 best runs of my life. There were lines with more snow than I've ever seen.

was light and really fluffy real cold smoke. We had 36-48 inches in Lamorille county above 3600 feet. It is now very heavy and cut up. Had to be here monday.

I was up @ Sugarbush Monday and Tuesday. It was just Awesome. Maybe 24-28 inches there from the storm. Today with the March sun and temps near 30 degrees coupled with all that snow was as good as it gets biggrin.gif

 

Bonus....Heavens Gate chair never opened on Monday (wind hold) so got more first tracks again today!

Un freakin' believable!yahoo.gif
And I thought a couple of 24'-30" dumps here last season was "Epic".

Bush did you get up on Profanity this PM? I want to say that the snow was drifted in a good 30 feet or so. It was seriously like teh geography of the mountain was changed up there. Also, I heard about another avy that happened yesterday.

I'm at Killington this week and they got a mere 14" or so. While I'm not a Kton regular, I've never skied it when it was as good as the bluebird of today.

 

Off to Stowe tomorrow to ski with Epic for a day (make that a couple of runs because nobody skis with gapers on pow days). Can't imagine what Stowe will be like. Smiling in anticipation.

no, noone to go with.

 

LP not a powder day tomorrow just super nice packed powder day that is sure to be 100 percent bumps by days end. Everything today had zipper lines on it by 3pm.

I'm at Smugglers' Notch for the week ... rained Saturday and Sunday morning, then changed over to snow by about 11:30am Sunday.  Snowed straight through the night and all day Monday until about 5pm.  AT LEAST 30 INCHES!!  A good number of staff folks not get to work ... they did not run either Madonna lift on Monday,and very little grooming got done that day.  Lots of fresh stuff still available this morning.  Many schools were closed, so a bit more traffic than usual weekdays, but even the stuff that got skied up pretty well was still crud piles and soft bumps.  Local folks said bumped trails like FIS are only this good maybe once a year!!  Nothing but blue skies, sunshine and soft snow ... truly a spectacular day!

We were at Jay Wed 3/9.  Freshies were skied out, but there was deep bottomless snow off piste - cold and fairly kight still, and no crusting.  They had rain yesterday, though :(

post #16 of 16

I was at Mad River on Tues and Sugarbush on Wednesday.  I'd judge it at about 2 feet.

As you might guess, MRG gets skied out pretty quickly ... the kids had schooled cancelled

so more locals were able to come out.  It was a blast, though.

There were still untracked lines in the woods at S'bush on Wednesday.

If I'd checked the forecast again maybe I'd have gone on up to Jay instead, but then again maybe not.

 

It was a great couple of days.
