    Weird, Smuggs being so close to Jay and with similar elevations. All glades in play at Jay and well covered. The forecasts look very favorable. Next week-end could be epic.

    Am I wrong in thinking Jay does a nice job kind of clearing there graded areas, so that they take less snow to open?

    Last year - that horrible year - we got into the woods at Jay after about 10" of snow, and they were really nice - definitely some roots and rocks, but totally skiable. Where as, down the road at Stowe, woods weren't really in play.

    Is Jay on state land? Always wondered if maybe they have more freedom to clear out the branches and what not....seems like they open up the woods way before other places....

    Alice's table has gone downhill. Last few times there food was bad. Not even as good as food at Cannon. But they have a noodle place now. No idea how good but I want to try.

    Jay is mostly on state land. The two most skied glades (Timbuktu and Beaver) have constant pitch and don't need much snow to be good, but there are a few that are incredibly rocky and need tons of snow (e.g. staircase and the top of everglade).

    Was it this year? I havent been to JP this year, but I thought AT was fine last year.

    I guess it shouldnt shock me if quality went down this year though given the obvious budget cuts.

    Pretty amazing gradients, Berkshire East has 1-2" of sleet at the base and 6" of snow up high.
    My couch might pull out but I send it.

    Dang - if it were just a few degrees colder, this would have been great.

    Im not complaining as this is good base building material for the woods ahead of the colder weather to come.

    Especially after the forecast last week for 50 degrees and 2" of rain... We got spared big time.
