Guys (coyne, BigJay, et al), where are you?

It's been snowing in Boston since Sunday. Work has me tied down and I can't shake loose.

How are the conditions up there? I can't count on Roemer's reports.

What's up?

things are pretty rad. we've been getting 6 inches here and there overnight. i went around the NEK both before and after work and had an awesome day. the snow is consolidating a bit in the NEK, but most stuff around here hasn't been touched, the beauty of the NEK. my day today went like this:

had to work the old 1-7 shift at the shop today so i got up early and earned some serious solo turns. found some no joke goods around pisgah. had a few scary moments when i decided to drop in between two of the ice climbing routes there, thinking that for some reason there wouldn't be ice under the snow. so there wasn't enough snow and i uncovered a nice alpine climbing route. kinda not so cool at first, but finagled my way to the bottom and the run out was way legit. Also set a nice skin track up behind the Abuchon and practiced my powder 8s by the light of the parking lot. not a bad day for a work day.

there is still plenty to be had around here, as long as this rain event isn't of great significance. I'll be making my rounds before my 10am shift at the shop sunday. gonna be an early morning.

Last couples of weeks were crazy up at Jay... After a bit of rain, snow piled up continuously at Jay almost everyday! I don't remember a xmas holiday that generous in snow for years!

I went out twice with the splitboard... First time it was about -20F or something... crazy cold... We went out to explore Little Jay in search of new lines and new ideas... We found some great open woods and really steep side of a mountain... I recorded most of it on the GPS... so it will be easier the next time... The battery died on me... Maybe because it was Fr*****in cold!

The next day, we went out on Big Jay. It was a lot warmer and the snow was way lighter then the previous day. Still, riding 4ft of fresh untouched snow always is a good thing.... We did the last section of the Jailhouse Chute... Pretty impressive stuff... But definately not needed! Be careful, trees were just piled up on the ground.... You can get you skis caught up in them...

Today is the first day of RAIN for most of the east coast with above average weather... 60F in some areas... Ouch! We'll loose a lot of snow... but in 2 weeks, things should be back to normal... I guess we needed a break to recharge our batteries! Heck, i'll get my bike out and go for a ride on frozen snowshoe trails, there always fun!

skinned up to tuckermans bare chested today and saw a 6ft crown across the entire bowl below the headwall rock/ice. pretty rad to see and a good reminder that the shit can rip. being 62 degree by noon today the sherburne was a bit sticky, but it was most def the best coverage ive ever see on it.

Gents, how much of the snowpack has been destroyed?

It's been POURING rain in Boston since about 6am. The front looks like it extends all the way north to Montreal. This can't be good.

I just blew off plans to head up to nVT about 10 minutes ago. I may leave tomorrow or Sunday and try and time the storm that may be coming (please lord...). Then hope for some powder on Mon and Tue. I'd pray (or piss on a spark plug) if I thought it'd do some good.

Every year this Jan Thaw just burns my ass. Its downright gloomy over at AlpineZone.com

Alright, here's an update on what's going on in the Northern Greens!

In the last week, a few snow events took place. Reports from different area between Jay and Stowe talk about 24in of snow in the last week or so. Temps have been cold so the snow is still fresh in most places. Hopefully, we'll catch a few flakes here and there to improve the quality of the base. There isn't much to work on but everything that is there is rock solide from the meltdown from 2 weeks ago.

We're going out somewhere around Jay on Saturday... I'll try and post a report with pics if it's not too cold... I haven't made a single report this season to encourage the east coast scene... We need our fix too!

hit up a tour on big jay yesterday. deep, light, and big cliffs was the name of the game. nice solid base underneath makes for some difficult skinning up from the bottom, but well worth the effort.
