Keep this short Im not a fan of typing on cell phones.

Jay was all time today. No BS either. Employees were friendly and lines were not that bad. Heard Saturday was a shit show but we were at Burke.

Woods were off the hook, fresh deep and light snow everywhere. North Glade and Timbuktu were the 2 best runs Ive had in a long time. Hooting and hollering all day.

That said this snow is light and whats underneath is icy. Burke got less snow so they could still use more. Jay is fairly loaded up except windswept spots.

Snowed all day keeping it super fresh. Great experience @ Jay1485732946533.jpg1485732956270.jpg1485732968942.jpg1485732977869.jpg

Jay was all-time Saturday too. Fresh to be found EVERYWHERE--Timbuktu, Kitz woods, hells woods, vertigo, buckaroo, staircase, everglade, beaver pond, andre's, and some patches of woods in between. We put first tracks on a completely untouched Green Mountain Boys that was chock full of powder from the 12"+ that fell overnight. A bit busy but we seemed to be exploring the mountain in a way that had us (mostly) avoiding the long ass Flyer line. All Time

the freezer was ski-on yesterday but there were pretty big lines over at the Jet. We mostly skied off the Bonnie and Flyer... didn't bother with the tram even though I would have liked to take a run on Tuckermans Chute and Valhalla, it was pretty poor visibility up there for most of the day and waiting in the tram line was never enticing enough when we were getting fresh and deep in Everglade and the stuff over on that side

Couldn't stop skiing! Took a break Stateside for an Irish Coffee and some breaks in the woods for rest, snacks, and hydration. The conditions were too phenomenal to hold back from taking more runs...we rode a Jet lift at 4 (3rd to last chair) to snag Kitz/Hell's woods for the final run. Didn't take a ton of pics thru the day
