Jay Peak IS Stowe's Kiddy Pool. It's where we take the 'new girlfriend' so she can get comfortable in the woods... but hey, I'm sure you had a ton of fun.

We don't get any of that wind or windloading on the tallest peak in VT. This video looks deep, but Matt is only 28" tall. Anyway, I too wish I'd been at Jay because I would have gotten to ski longer since at Jay Peak each hour has 75 minutes!

Oh, my poor legs! tongue.gif

 

It looks like Stowe was the winner though. As for Killington and Okemo... oh well. biggrin.gif I can't imagine wasting a powder day at Okemo and Killington wasn't getting much. If you went to VT this weekend looking to ski the the goods, a glance at doppler radar would have steered you to Stowe, MRG or SB.

It snowed all day on Saturday at Sugarbush.......All the runs off of Castle Rock were fantastic on Sunday. The snow was up to my waist on certain parts of Lift Line.............Skied Mad River on Monday and there was still plenty of fresh pow to be had. Great glades there.

I LOVE MRG, I was there on Monday as well, my 1st time experiencing the LEGENDARY MRG.

 

The lift attendant on the double chair asked us where we were from and me and my buddy let him know that we were out of towners and told us that the next run we have to come and talk to him.  Next run down we both take off our skis and the attendant starts pointing out great glades and tree areas that rarely get touched filled with little cliff jumps and knee deep powder

 

It was something that would never happen at any other mountain
