    Ok, we had a great thread going last season… Hope Doug will be back!

    After a week of cold temps and snow in the Quebec city region, there’s been a warm front moving on to our region… However things kept cool enough for snow not to melt on Jay and most of Mansfield.

    Snow began falling on Jay this morning and 5-6in fell on the mountain while most mountains saw only rain. Snow was visible this afternoon on the Stowe Webcam.

    Jay and Mansfield area could see up to a foot of snow by the storm’s end on friday evening… Things look good so far!

    right on. this forum was way rad that season, ill be posting on here for sure.

    more importantly jay was off the chain today! having the jet chair helping us gain some quick ele. people we making the trek over to areas surrounding ‘bonnie’. can am was steep and deep this morning, but since it was in easy reach for the joey’s out there we ventured farther and farther west every run. ran into a fellow splitter as i was making my way over to green mtn boy’s (i wasnt even thinking at that point and didnt ask his name or if he posted here). We took a wicked solid run through the woods that was just unreal. totally wasnt expecting woods riding on opening day.

    I recommend that people get over there. we’ll be back at it tomorrow seeking out the goods.

    I was at Jay too on saturday: Sick day for opening!

    Rode the trails all day.. stayed clear of the woods… Didn’t venture out much… I rode a “regular” board… I used my split last w-e… This day was 90% lift accessed!

    18+in of base pretty much all over Jay Peak… Hope this sticks around and we get pounded by next w-e… don’t give me weather outlook… this time of year anything can happen!

    Went to Mount Snow today for the first turns of the year on a “Regular” board. For those new SnowFans it was exceptionally good. they say the have 14 trails but it just seemed it was one big run which i did NOT hold back. love using people as gates. i recommend if anyone is thinking to make some good turns on some good snow. (For now) will get to Jay soon enough

    Nah! For real?

    I tought we would have a chance to ride this season! After all, you did show the goods to Anne-Marie and André… I was hoping to join you on a ride at Camel’s Hump or Mad River Valley!

    Ah welll…. I’ll have to hunt it down by myself!

    Cheers!

    I think northern VT has more snow than the Wasatch right now.

    After monday’s rain, Jay Peak picked up 8in in the last 24H… Makes good for the coming w-e… Woods skiing is happening right now at Jay. Too early for some BC turns but the closed side of the mountain is easy access with skins!

    pics or no, I’d like to find out if BC seems doable next sunday (Dec. 9th)… speaking of which, anybody got a floor I could crash on? happy to buy beeer/dinner in exchange!

    Jay was pretty good this w-e… 8-12in the woods on top of a crud…

    Now it’s dumping since last night… 3ft in perspective when the storm wraps up on Wednesday… I’ll be there tomorrow… Fishy will take it’s first swim this season… Malolo got to taste it all so far… Splitty is awaiting quietly on the back seat for some earned turns if it starts to be windy or if the don’t open upper mountain lifts!

    That’s the stuff!
    😀

    (PS: We’ll try and take some pics and vids tomorrow… My friend just bought a helmet cam… maybe something good can come out of it!)

    monday was great. once again they only had the jet open which allowed us to get first tracks all over the place all day long. This season is off to a serious start. I might be able to find some pictures from a friend.

    Went riding at Jay tuesday… Simply unbelievable! Mid-thighs… Knee deep all over the place… Really light snow… Face shots all day… Blazing through the trees… Everything is open… Wow!

    Backcountry is a serious option this w-e… Inbounds should be tracked out. I’m also doing my first try on telemark skis… Always been a skier and a boarder (20 years)… I’ve been meaning to try it in the past 10 years… but it just never happened… We’ll see what goes from there!

    I’ll be there with all the stuff i need… I don’t know if i’ll be taking lessons… I have my pass already… don’t feel like paying 20$ to be in a large group… Tons of people i normally ride with are on tele gear…

    We should all hook shop… Shep will be there too… We’re talking about doing a tour somewhere on Sunday…

    Plus, sat. night, First Trax is hosting the TGR Premiere in Montgomery:
    http://www.firsttrax.net/events.html

    You should be there!

    yeah i’m trying to get my boss to pick up the cost of the clinic, since we sell tele gear at my shop, but we only have one guy who tele’s, so hopefully i can get in the clinic.

    Not sure that I’ll be at the TGR show, not enough denero. But I’ll certainly be trekking around for pow stashes come sunday. My roommate got turns down big jay and saw a few other tracks out there. It’s in, well at least the big swath is in, if you’re into it.
