It was a tough choice between Jay Peak and Sugarloaf last weekend. A more snowy forecast made us head to Maine, and it ended up a pretty good choice. Mixed precip Saturday afternoon was the only downer, but it turned to snow overnight down to teh base and made for an excellent Sunday as the weather slowly improved throughout the day. A chowda skiing day ;)
I was impressed by Sugarloaf. Even without the Summit open there was some fine advanced skiing off the Skyline chair, with excellent snow cover in the trees. We need to go back in winter when everything is open.
