@Jonathan Keller : by the way, my friend's wife did a group lesson this morning.  $60 for 2 hours . . . and she ended up with a private with someone who's been teaching for decades.  The soft snow this afternoon was good for practicing stuff when I skied with her and her husband after lunch.

 

@Maui Steve and friend, @Brad J, MarzNC's friend (vacationing with beginner wife)

 

Blasting on Devil's Castle

 

Tracks on Backside around noon.

So beautiful looking!

So, I didn't find airfare that I was willing to pay, so instead of 4 days out west, I have settled for a weekend here in the Northeast. Leaving for Jay Peak late tonight to ski tomorrow. After skiing Jay, we're going to decide whether to do a second day at Jay, or to then drive to Mont Tremblant and ski in Quebec as well. Figure that if we're going to be that close to the border, why not?

If you're going to do that Mt. St. Anne has much more terrain open.  Sugarloaf is the other eastern place that seems to keep a high percent of terrain open in April.

One person forgot their passport so we're doing two days here at Jay. Loving it so far.

I'll give full report when I get home tomorrow night.

That said, Jay is pretty awesome after day one. Got there around ten am after leaving NYC at 3:30am
