Partly Sunny.

Jay Peak is the place to be this week after getting pummelled by snow for the past month. The sun has been dipping in and out of the clouds today, but we think if keep your face pointed upwards, you may be able to pull a little goggle tan out of the day. 

Groomed terrain this morning will be a nice loose granular consistency that you’ll definitely be able to sink an edge into. Glades may have seen a bit of a firming overnight from these cold temps, but later in the day, we may see just about everything soften up in the sun.

After a bunch of hard work, Lower Can-Am has been flattened out and is expected to open back up this morning. With the re-opening of this trail, we will be back to being 100% open.

Today, ski and ride on 78 trails serviced by all 9 of our lifts. Upper mountain lifts started to spin at 8:30 AM, just after lower mountain lifts started the day at 8:00 AM. As always, last chair for all lifts is at 4:00 PM.

***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. There is a good chance over the coming holiday weeks that day tickets will sell out early.

Winter break for sure!

What a week for a winter break! How about that spring skiing on Sunday! Does it get any deeper? Then a little bit of a re-freeze with sunshine here for our Monday and Tuesday.

As we continue on in this winter break, wintry weather takes a break too; roughly Wednesday through Saturday. 

The parade of storms coming up the pacific ocean are splitting in half, portions of them are traveling across the deep south with the threat for severe weather there, and the other portions of traveling across Canada bringing warmth across much of the United States.

With this new storm track, at least it means that we are relatively dry, as the precipitation mostly misses us to the north.

However, a frontal boundary is pretty close so we have to keep mostly cloudy skies in the forecast for pretty much the entire second half of the week and weekend. Wind should not be an issue until Friday late and Saturday.

Temperatures are warm enough for soft snow, but not so warm as to cause rivulets and/or moving water.

At least that's the thinking at this time.

Temperatures are going to be pretty close to freezing at night, warming to the low 40s by day.

A few rain or snow showers are possible night, Wednesday night, and Thursday night.

And if there are rivulets and slushy lift lines they wait until Saturday. (We may actually sneak a little new snow in Thursday night.

Then, a push pretty warm air is going to come up Friday night with the temperature in the 30s to 40s.

Saturday starts off in the 50s.. Not sure on the timing but a batch of rain is going to come through too; it may wait until late in the day.

Just when you think you're ready to throw in the towel, winter is going to roar back in on Sunday.

The Jay Cloud (and wind) returns beginning Sunday, and is here for most of next week. Next week we resume the snowy pattern.

March is going to start off with a series of storms, which hopefully are all snow, but could be a mix. 

Winter is far from over! It is just taking a little break.

Our deepest snow pack may not be behind us just yet, I am liking the way March looks from this standpoint.
