Jay Peak Conditions

Conditions at Jay Peak look pretty sweet right now.

Re: Jay Peak Conditions

Pretty good yesterday though my exuberance was only over 6" :) . Debating going back again tomorrow. It got warm up north. Town of Jay temp peaked at 37* today so I don't know if that effected the snow at elevation or not. To hike for more potentially good snow or ride the lifts for a sure thing?

Edit: Yea, I don't think the snow would have held out with the higher temps. Probably heading to da River tomorrow unless I get some beta from the field suggesting the snow is still soft.

Re: Jay Peak Conditions

SBR checking in from the Snowshoe Pub. Skied Jay yesterday, today and will be there tomorrow. Great conditions all over, no ice. excellent coverage. Woods are very racked out but still fun to ski. Very windy and the Bonnie is down for repair. Tram side glades are the least traveled.

Over and out.

Re: Jay Peak Conditions

So I left the pub, slept, went skiing and drove home. Short version: there is lots of snow snow at Jay. It is just not always where you want to be:

Re: Jay Peak Conditions

Today would be a nice day to be at Jay Peak if you had spent the night at Tram Haus Lodge. Maybe not so good for driving this morning. They are reporting 28" this morning, check out this pic from FB:

Re: Jay Peak Conditions

It's funny that for some reason the radar doesn't really pick up snow over Jay that well. But if you watch radar often enough and you see consistent snow along the rest of the spine you know Jay is getting it. It's been going and going for 24-36 hours.

Re: Jay Peak Conditions

Perhaps the Jay Cloud is "off the radar."
