It looks like we dodged a huge warm and wet bullet today. After a very short period of rain, temperatures dropped, and it started snowing. It looks like we could see close to a HALF FOOT of snow by first chair tomorrow.

Looking forward to the weekend, it looks like we’ll see mid-winter conditions. The skiing and riding should be exceptional on everything from the groomers to the woods. Temps look to be in the mid-20s with partly sunny skies and a chance of flurries. 

TOMORROW: All lifts and runs are expected to open. That translates to 78 trails of machine groomed and spring goodness being serviced by nine lifts. First Chair for lower-mountain lifts is slated for 8:30AM with the upper-mountain expected to come online at 9:00AM; last chair for all lifts is at 4:00PM.

The 36th annual Land Shark Beach Party is this Saturday. Get all of the details here.

Here at last!

"Here at last"

"Here at last" captures a special "moment" for me in my skiing career.  Over the years I heard of Jay Peak and how it is the place to ski if you like steep and deep snow, no crowds, and great hospitality and that's exactly how I like it.  Well, last year I finally was able to make my first visit to Jay.  It started days before as I anticipated my arrival and dreamed of what the weekend would entail.  Would there be snow in the glades?  Would it be crowded with long lift lines?  On Friday morning I began my 5 hour voyage from Connecticut to Jay, wishing and hoping that it would be snowing and the conditions would be perfect.  It's a long ride up I 91 and I was getting nervous since there really wasn't much snow to speak of all the way to Orleans.  It took until Westfield and Troy on Rt 100 and Rt 101 where there was finally a snow cover on the ground.  Still, I was nervous knowing that I was within miles of Jay.  The weather was beautiful, mid 20's with a light wind, but the lack of snow had me worried.  To my surprise as I headed up Rt 242, the sun went behind the clouds and the skies darked.  Snow began to fall, and the farther up the mountain I went, the harder it came down.  And then I came upon the Welcome sign to Jay Peak, the snow falling and adding up and I was relieved.  "Here at last" I said to myself, and that began what was an epic weekend on the slopes of the best mountain in the East!
