The mountain is slowly recovering from a devastating January thaw. It rained a lot over the 1/12-13 weekend and much base was washed away. Several storms during the week had trail counts increasing each day. By Saturday, there was a lot of powder in the woods and on the side of most runs. The problem was getting to them. The Tram and Flyer were closed both days due to wind. Our best runs were when we hiked from the top of the Bonaventure lift to the top of the Flyer and skied Ullr's. It had great powder as did the Beaver Pond Glades. Runs off the Jet lift were a mix of powder and scraped away powder leaving an icy base. Sunday was kind of a joke. We were warned before we reached the lodge that Jet was the only real lift running. After the agonizing wait to get on the Metro chair and the blind traversse in a squall over to Jet, we got in 4 runs and then it closed for wind. We had to walk up to the taxi chair to get back to the main lodge. A lot of hiking in the two days and only a little that rewarded the effort with good runs. Jay should buy several used J-Bars or Poma's and put them in spots to provide access to the trails when the chairs are on wind hold. This great mountain seems to rarely be fully open due to wind issues. It's fun to be up there, but a long ride for questionable available terrain. We did not stay on the Jay property, we stayed at the Jay Village Inn. Nice to be able to leave the resort and be in real Vermont for the evening. Also a lot less expensive than staying in the resort.
