UPDATE:

Snow has been falling just about all day now, and so far, we’ve seen 1-2” of wet & heavy snow with more on the way. Ski or ride this afternoon on 72 trails serviced by 6/9 lifts.  Lift Ops is still working hard to de-ice some of our Upper Mountain lifts, but currently, the Bonaventure Quad is spinning for Upper Mountain access; all Lower Mountain lifts are currently spinning with last chair for all lifts at 4:00 PM.

Speaking of more snow, our mountain forecaster is calling for snow just about every day starting now through Sunday. Totals are still up in the air (literally) but predictions are calling for up to a foot of new snow on the ground by next week. Do a snow dance and skol to Ullr.

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!
