At Jay Peak, a few bare spots were emerging on the usual windblown open runs but the woods all all in extremely good shape, inbound and out of bound. The sun was definitely warm enough to melt a bit of snow, even in sub-freezing temperature.
Biggest problem is the underlying ice. On a few runs, too many bad intermediate skiers unable to stick to the slope line have resulted in icy patches separated by huge compacted snow moguls with 90-degree uphill faces.
Still, considering the weather, one fantastic week-end of skiing. On Friday, lots of deep untouched snow left in the secret spots. Second largest crowd of the year on Saturday.

It was a good weekend to be out. I was impressed with how good the snow was on the trails...days after the event. It was back to winter. Gotta take these days when you can get them.
The sun angle this time of year doesn't help things. I took my snowmobile out Saturday. I could see snirt starting to form on some of the hills.
Leave no turn unstoned!
