It's been warm lower on the hill today (around 38F) and conditions are certainly reflective of that. Up top, however, we have remained below the freezing point and trails that were groomed overnight are beginning to firm up a bit. Be cautious launching into the woods, the deeper stuff in there is particularly grabby today. 

Although warm, forecasts have some snow potentially landing on the mountain later on. It's not certain how much we'll get, but we may wake up to 1-3" of fresh snow tomorrow. 

Speaking of trails, we have 77 open for skiing and riding today, serviced by all 9 of our lifts. Upper mountain lifts, excluding the Jet triple which was slightly delayed for grooming, started up at 8:30 AM. Lower mountain lifts started up at their scheduled time of 8:00 AM. As always, last chair for all lifts is at 4:00 PM.

The 1 trail we have closed is Lower Can-Am for our USASA skier/boarder cross event, which wraps up this afternoon. Head on up the Bonaventure Quad to get over there and watch the races. 

If you hadn’t already heard, Jay Peak has the most natural snowfall in New England. At 351”, we are already looking towards one of the best winters ever. In the past 7-days, 47” of new snow dropped, further ensuring an incredible spring to follow. 

***THINKING OF COMING TO THE PUMP HOUSE OVER THE HOLIDAY?*** Please note that the safest way to guarantee admission to the Pump House (other than through a lodging package) is to purchase your tickets in advance online.

Skipping the layer of ice for a week.

Here we are mid week- and not talking about any new ice for a change.There are about five layers of ice buried deep in our 6 foot snow pack now.

This week is just snow, snow, and snow, oh yeah with one blue sky Valentine's Day mixed in. Tuesday was a treasure with sunshine and light wind (after another couple feet of snow in three days.)

Now we are back in the snow, pretty much all day Wednesday, and Thursday, and Friday morning. One low-pressure system coming from the north pole, is merging with another system that caused severe weather in Texas. Those two are combining to make for one prolonged snowfall that will add up to another 10 to 20+ inches by early Friday. Each snowy week seems to outdo the previous.

For a time it's not too windy, but as Thursday goes on we do see the wind increase and will be windy Thursday afternoon into Friday morning.

The breeze goes down over the weekend, and the temperature comes up. We are not sure how much sunshine, but it will be comfortable with the high temperature close to 30°. We can hardly ask for better conditions, the phrases 'all-time' and 'epic' are still going about.

We are likely going to take a break in the onslaught of storms for a few days.
It's a tough call on whether we are on the cold side, or the warm side of the front Monday and Tuesday, but it looks pretty quiet.

Then we are back to our mid week challenge, will it snow, or will it ice and rain, and then snow?
I would lean toward it warmer solution, but either way it appears that whatever does fall goes back to snow setting us up for another good weekend next week.

Mother nature is making my job rather easy, as it keeps snowing, and you keep smiling.

From the snowy scenic seacoast of southern New England, Happy Valentine's Week!
