Jay is reporting that everything is open except Face Chutes and Staircase, but Tram and Flyer on wind hold. Bet we don't see those reopen till Monday. Might be a fun day.

Stuck between Jay/SB/Bolton
Feel like most of the people up at Jay won’t make the hike from Bonnie up to Flyer side so it might be untouched over there.

It seems from this storm that Jay is in a better area for snow totals. How would you compare Jaypeak?? to Smugglers?? are they even comparable in trail sizes and tree runs I haven't been to Jay yet

On radar this storm is moving quickly with little trailing edge remaining. Hoping for a slowdown or a good back end to show up, So far this doesn't seem to have a full Nor'easter spin with a planned whip around of storm and winds in VT.

Peeking at the radar I like that you can see the lake effect moisture and snow feeding into this storm as it passes. I haven't seen that too often. Come on 12"+ come on baby.

As long as the wind doesn’t shut the mountain down Jay has the best inbounds trees on the east imo.

Watching from my office, but it looks like from radar that the adks and cats were the big winners today. A lot of VT and NH got dry slotted.

The back end of the storm still needs to come through so I hope that delivers for you guys. +upslope hope.

Smugglers Notch is reporting at 4pm 12" have fallen since midnight. Hope it continues all night but forecast radars show it being past Northern VT around 9pm to 10pm not counting any back end possibly

Well since the winds are supposed to die back to just sub 30mph wind gusts I hope they would open them.

Smuggs or Jay Peak, Jay or Smugglers.... Never been to Jay but great glades and trees.

Shut the mountain down was hyperbole but wind will be a factor tomorrow. Only question is when will it subside/which lifts will be effected. I’ll be up at Jay tomorrow though and as long as the Bonnie is running you can access great terrain.

Montage had gotten 7" Sat by all reports, but it was nothing but icy hard pack Sunday AM. Disappointing.

Saddleback was 🔥 today. They got 11” over the weekend and a refresher overnight. I am completely wrecked from doing that trek to the Casablanca chutes and Muleskinner over and over. Worth it, though - untracked lines available all day. I think I’ll try for Jay later in the week based on the pix in the thread…

It will be spring skiing later this week. Maybe more snow Saturday. Euro has a foot, GFS has zilch.
