    With some thinning (don't know how easy environmental permits would be for that), an access trail circling the West Bowl (part Long trail part below the long trail) and a collector trails back toward the resort (which would require some skinning) Jay peak could cater to this very rapidly growing population that would, hopefully bring additional business to the resort.

    Otherwise, I agree that we won't see a lift in the West-Bowl in this lifetime.
    I'd love to see more areas do stuff like this, especially out east where our true back country options are limited.

    Not a chance.

    Considering all the money that was thrown at the place in the last ten years, and the complete lack of any significant upgrades on mountain, I find it unlikely that they will do anything big on the mountain. Hell, Burke has seen more improvements on mountain during that time than Jay. And yes I am not considering the Taxi Quad.

    Was it bdfreetuna that wrote that epic Trip Report that featured an emergency dump in the woods? I hope that he was not near any Bicknell Thrush. If so, those poor birds died.

    That is the most disgusting trip report ever written, and surpassing it will be no easy task.

    It's like Wayne Gretzky's career points record. Technically it could one day be surpassed, but I just dont realistically see it happening.
