Jiminy Peak 11-22-08

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Friends, family and I loved Jiminy Peak yesterday. This was one of the best opening days I can remember at Jiminy (maybe the best ever according to the e-mails Jiminy sends me).

Conditions: The ten or so open trails had edge-to-edge coverage and were nicely groomed. The snow was mostly hard-packed (not as soft as Killington's snow on Friday - see my TR from 11/21), but it was fun to carve, especially Upper/Lower Fox and West Way/Grand Slam.

Crowds: Surprisingly light crowds for a Saturday, considering the $29 e-coupon. The line at the Berkshire Express was never longer than 3 minutes.

Weather: Approximately 20F with Jiminy's typical strong wind at the top of West Way. Great place for a wind turbine! A few snow squalls, but no accumulation.

Nice resort. Those runs look great for GS carves. We aren't open.

Wish we'd known. DoWork, Abbey and I skied together on Saturday. It was pretty sweet - very nice day.

Let me know next time you go. I am there a lot.

I was there too but had to leave around 11:30. Spent most of my time on North glade and teh foxes. Then I skied Bousquet all night. Night skiing was butal with the wind and low temps.

Not sure when we got there, but we were late. Sorry we missed you.

Skiing was pretty darn good for this time of year.

Thats OK, I agree it was good snow !!

My first ride up was with a snowmaker doing a little riding in between shifts! he was proud of the snow and I do not blame him for that!
