    It starting raining at our place just north of Brattleboro around that time as well. A small band of showers rolled though. We really need this pattern shift badly.

    It's bare in the valleys but there is definitely more snow than last year at higher altitude. There are three feet on the ground at 1800' and 5 feet at 3500' (measured with a probe Saturday). We never came anywhere close to that last year And this is high density snow.

    I was at Smuggs yesterday and Stowe Saturday.. there was nowhere close to 3 feet except in areas where it had drifted. I would not be surprised to hear Jay is doing a lot better as they've had 50 more inches of snow so far.

    Everything I am seeing is more ice than white this storm. Further NW one goes better shot of all white. But I think everyone gets at least a crusty top from this one.

    Taken around 3000' in the West Bowl. Considering snow density, her foot was nowhere close to the bottom. Prime backcoutry conditions although most streams are yet to be filled since it's been so warm lately.

    Are you saying woods are currently out of play at Smuggs? Was planning on Jay Friday and either Smuggs/Stowe Saturday. Might do Jay/Jay if that's what you're saying.

    There was one that was okay, I think it's called Highlander Glades ... on Sterling. Still plenty of bare/rock to avoid though. All the other woods I saw I would consider "out of play" even by my standards.

    Might be a different story by the weekend but if you want to ski trees it looks like Jay is the place to be.

    FWIW Stowe appeared to have a little better base in the woods, probably in part due to more snowmaking blowover.

    Joe Bastardi posted a GEFS model on his twitter page, that is show some good snows from Pa north.

    FWIW While I choose to stay out of the woods this past weekend, (there were some open) what I saw at Okemo for the most part was not too far away from being in play, and Okemo's not the highest of elevation.
