Jay Peak Day Deux

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 

 Yesterday was indeed a kick ass day after 6-8" of fresh, unfortunately, we didn't take any pictures. Today was different. Bushwacker showed up along with his buddy, they joined Ty and I for a worldwind assault on Jay. We started off on Valhalla to Hells Woods. from there we hit the Jet triple to Timbuktu. After Tumbuktu we went back up the Jet to Kitz Woods back to Hell's Woods. From there to Boni list to Deliverance to Powerline to bumps below the Boni lift. back up the Boni lift to Canyonland to Showoff Glades. Boni lift again to Goat Run to Buck Woods to Full Moon and in for lunch. 

 

Lunch

 

After lunch: Flyer Express to Poma to Beaver Pond and back to the Tram to Northway to Upper Goat to Buckaroo Banzai to teh Tram to Northway to Expo to Flash. Flyer to Northway to Northglades. Northglades was so nice, we had to do it twice. At this point the light was getting real flat. So up the Flyer to Goatrun to Buckaroo and back in. 

 

Here are some pics...

The "during" picture. The after picture was a double ejection tumbler. It would have been better on video.

Sounds like a great day!  I wish I could be there with you guys, but work will not allow it ATM.  If your heading up again tomorrow and looking for a challenge, you should hit up Green Beret, Upper River Quai, Can Am, Vertigo, The Face, and Tuckermans Chute.  If the conditions are good, they can be great... but if the conditions are sketchy  you may want to pick skis with bases you don't mind scratching.    Also ski the "Office" chute under the top of the red chair (bonnie) then duck right into the left hand side of Deliverance.  It's a fun little shot with a 6-8 footer into a potential double on skiers right at the top of it, and it's a good way to avoid the notoriously sketchy entrance chutes at the top of Deliverance.

Ty and I did URQ, CA and Vert the other day and they were scetchy then but not even open today. As far as the "office" chutes, we didn't know their names but we did duck into them today. The Everglades are on the agenda for tomorrow.

Sounds like a great time,Phil! Reminds me of how much I like Jay, although we probably won't get there this year. Damn work-I need to win the lottery!

phenomenol trees! awesome, great shots too!

post #8 of 21

Yeah, It was tons of fun, and Jay is surprisingly a good mountain, with tons of glades and bumps.  I'd prefer a little more open huge groomers, but I think that's only because sometimes it feels like a smaller Western Resort with it's myriad of glades.

 

But now I feel like a total tool now that my profile picture on Facebook is now a picture of me skiing, guess I'm joining the club.

 We had a great couple of days. Skub and I had a great time skiing with Josh and Jeff. I did my best keeping up with 3 guys that I was old enough to be their father, and one I was. Other than a brief siesta of a mental break, I think I did a pretty good job.

I love the Bushwacker ID photo!

I recently skied Jay with three other guys.  Two of them are about my age the fourth could have been my son.  Somewhere around 2pm the young guy wrenched his back and joined my wife in the lodge.  Upon arrival she asked if the 'old guys' had gotten the better of him.  He said, "Let me tell you about the old guys.... I may be young, agile and energetic but the old guys have experience and technique on their side.  They just keep going and going and going."

 

My wife, the non-skier, became confused as to what exactly he was talking about.

I recall Stu Campbell and Weems talking about their "age" and skiing while at Stowe 2006.

Stu said something that emphasized the necessity to be more efficient to accomplish the same thing. 

 

Is that what we're talking about here. 

post #16 of 21

Well, it could be..... yeah, that would make sense!

Yeah, well my first response to Phil's post was that he was keeping up with you so all props to him, no doubt.

 

I just thought the story was more fun =)

Hey Bush, that birch tree you are going around with the roots exsposed looks like a breakaway race gate, , your picutres are out of sequence though, that looks like a last second decision to make that line, any shimming or was it clean. Looks like good L3 technique there, way to go on that pass.

Great looking snow all you guys had to play in. Somehow I don't see Snowbird gettting to zero or slightly below as the thermometer showed. That was a warm day for Jay Peak standards. I once skied there when I saw a thermometer like that reading -40.

Nice TR, guys. It makes me miss Jay. I wonder how conditions will be over Easter. I'll keep an eye on the weather and hope for the best.

post #21 of 21

That was a fun day.  I'm Jeff in those pics, by the way.  Phill's double ejection on the drop was amazing to watch, to bad we didn't have video of it!
