Over A Foot Of New Snow This Week!

...and more on the way...

ROEMER FORECAST FOR THURSDAY THROUGH FRIDAY AM
6-10"--80% chance; 10-15"-- 40-50% chance; >15" 25%



Look for aggressive terrain expansion, snowmaking and natural snow over the next 48-72 hours. For this weekend, we'll have more than a dozen trails, 4-5 lifts, The New England Telemark Festival and 2 fully operational base lodges. We look forward to skiing and riding with you!

Another Alberta Clipper is queuing up and even conservative forecasters are calling for up to 10" by Friday morning. Stay tuned updates!

With Killington saying 30 trails and 9-lifts by the weekend and Jay noty even at Double digits for open runs, I seriously disagree with the title of this thread.

While that's a good start, I will meet ya there after about 100 more inches fall and there is a base.

Then I guess you've never been to Jay. Good luck in Jersey (AKA Killington). All they have is machine-made snow, yuck.

Actually, by Friday, quite a bit open plus what they have now. I would say roughly 10-12 "ways down", lol.

well, all jay will have 'open' is machine made snow trails, any pow that falls is going to get mowed on jet and haynes. not that a foot of blower powder is much to go off trail for, but let's focus on open terrain here. kmart def has jay beat for open terrain.

jay peak has updated their site to scale back the estimate to only 6-10" with no mention of roemer's crazy long shot of 15"+ at 25%.

I have been to Jay many times and find early season can be quite boney. Patience is rewarded with pillowy glades.

There are very few New England ski areas that I haven't been to, and yes, I've been to Jay. However, unless I lived within an hour of Jay, I don't think most reasonable people would find their few open runs to be worth the trip.

I live 2.5 hours from Killington and found their 16-open runs to be well worth the drive last week. If you limit your trips to Killington to before Christmas and to after March 1, I think you'll find the "objectionable crowd" to whom you refer to be absent.

i have found november crowds at killington to be quite objectionable, though that is a rather subjective term.

This Saturday is the first NET telemark festival of the year, at Jay, so for that reason alone it's worth the trip, regardless of snow. However, this crowd is rarely referred to as "reasonable people." I think we'll have plenty of fun.

This is the main reason we ski, to have fun.
