Wow, the reports on Jay and MRG sounded abysmal. Stowe just better off or are things improving in No. Vermont as we speak?

I think Stowe survived last week's rain better than others. Only Loaf got less rain. They also got a few inches of snow, which helped.
Things are slowly improving given that it has been pretty cold and not rained there since last week. Groomers should be in good shape. But until next good snow storm I would not count on glades and other ungroomed expert terrain.

I skied Jay Peak on 2/8,9,10, and the conditions were fairly good considering that there was an ice crust from the week prior. Aside from the wind on Friday which closed some lifts, the skiing was quite good in the glades. The few inches of snow that fell after the rain event apparently blew into the woods, making for great tree skiing.

Runs like Timbuktu, Beaver Pond and Canyon Land were excellent, with fresh tracks found OB in Timbuktu. The main, groomed runs were a little icy, but overall it was pretty good. Some of the exposed areas of the mountain, including trail heads, were dangerously icy, but once you got into more shelter, all was good.

This was my first time at Jay, and I would recommend it to anyone who likes to ski in the trees. There is a wide variety of terrain that should suit all skier types. And the tree skiing is the best in the east, with sustained runs through all sorts of fun terrain. I swear if you blind folded a local from Solitude and put them at the top of Timbuktu, they wouldn't know they were not in UT any more. At least not for a few turns anyways!
