A skier in deep snow at Jaypeak Resort

Updated April 5th, 2024

Not much left to say...

What a winter!
What a spring!

Everytime winter looked beat down, it bounced back bigger and better.
This week is a huge cherry on top!

As of this writing, 8AM Friday morning, we have been snowing for about 39 hours...
~ And we are passing 30" of new snow ~ And the wind has died way down ~ And it's powdery dry snow! ~
Our snow conditions do not get any better than this in April.. or any month for the most part.

The storm centered weakened and stalled in The Gulf Of Maine, where it will spend another 48 hours ~ spinning bands of varying intensity ~ snow showers our way. Another few inches of snow today and tomorrow should get us to that prediction of 36" of summit snow, if not even a little more.

The wind is still from the north, also at varying intensity, keeping us on the cool side to start the weekend.
We may get to the upper 30s at the base, but we should stay below 32° from 2000 feet and up.
Wind speeds should stay sub storm force too.
So it's Fat Ski & Boarding weather to kick off the first weekend of April.

Breaks of sunshine are possible into Saturday, but those glades are in the shade, so the snow may stay relatively dry.
Just be aware of that snow load in the canopy, and also some serious tree wells.

The sun is breaking through with greater force Sunday, but we are still on the cool side, so powder stashes may still be found.
Highs Sunday near 32° up top 40° down low.

Then we finally clear out the clouds Sunday night.
High pressure moves in with clearing skies and radiational cooling.
We start Monday clear and crispy with lows in the 10s and 20s.
Under full April sunshine we get to near 50° by 3PM.

But between 3:26 to 3:31 PM Monday afternoon we may cool off several degrees as Earth's only natural satellite ~ The 2,159.1 mile wide Moon ~ passes right in front of our star ~ The 865,370 mile wide Sun ~. The geometry just happens to work out perfectly here.

It's still a few days aways but the call for the Total Solar Eclipse here Jay Peak Resort looks good.
Our current storm will be gone, and the next warm front is forecast to be to our west with high thin clouds approaching, but hopefully not getting here until sunset. It may be a very pretty sunset too.

Then we start to warm up next week.
Likely a few showers by Wednesday.
A windy warm band of rain is possible later Thursday or Friday.

Then maybe another windy upslope snow event here next weekend!

No days off!

Happy April POW and Eclipse!
