Sunny.

UPDATE:  Conditions are fantastic today, as of 12:30 Patrol has opened the following trails; Vermonter, Valhalla, Northway, Angel's Wiggle, Montrealer and Catwalk. More ropes are expected to drop, check back later for updated trail count and conditions report.

An impressive 9-11” has fallen over the past 48 hours, giving us 19” for the week. One of those inches came last night and the forecast shows more coming later today into tomorrow. From all this snowfall Patrol has been able to take down a slew of ropes; our current trail count stands at 48.

Snowmaking took advantage of this dry cold air and spent the night on Angel’s Wiggle. Grooming is now pushing out that area in hopes to open on time, however, we could see some delays because of that.

**It’s not the warmest day, a face mask and some hand warmers are advised.**

Today, ski or ride on 48 trails serviced by 8 lifts scheduled to spin. Upper mountain lifts include The Jet, Bonaventure Quad, and Vermont’s only Aerial Tramway, all slated to spin starting at 9:00AM. Lower mountain lifts, The Taxi Quad, The Metro Quad, Stateside Moving Carpet, Tramside Moving Carpet, and Village Double and all scheduled to spin begging at 8:30AM. As always, last chair is at 4:00PM. 

Lift tickets for adults (19+) are $79 and kids 6-18 are $62. Tickets can be purchased at both Stateside and Tramside Customer Service Locations.

UPCOMING EVENTS:

**Jackie Greene plays the Foeger Ballroom on February 20th. Get the details here.**

The last stash

How many times have you arrived at Jay the day after a powder day? This moment occurred on March 2, 2012, a week after the momentous 48" and 48 hours after a 6 to 8" refresh. Can you say... tracked out? At 11 AM I found myself taking a break in a three-tram line, chatting with The Earnest Young Men From Pennsylvania With Really Fat Skis. I had been skiing since the Bonnie opened at 8:30, searching the mountain for untracked snow, and needed a rest. The EYMFPWRFS had just arrived, and were fully decked out in uber fat skis, Go-Pros and bro talk. They had made the classic first-time visitor mistakes:  1) getting to the mountain the day after, and 2) thinking that standing in a three-Tram line for first run at 11 am would somehow get them to the goods. After some chat, they realized that despite my grey hair, I might be able to offer some insight, so quizzed me on the best places to go. I gave out the usual vague advice and suggested all the standard tree runs: Valhalla, Timbuktu and pretty much any wooded place between the marked trails. The best part was the woman with the rental skis, eavesdropping and looking at like we were speaking a foreign language. Mental notes made, they seemed content. I thought to myself, "these guys are in for a surprise." Oh, well, live and learn. They will figure it out. When the Tram docked and the doors opened, I booked out of there as only the last guy on the Tram can do. Following my own advice, I sped down the Vermonter, turned onto a marked trail, followed my nose and found this lovely rabbit hole. Down I went. Jay Peak delivers, as usual.
