    Word on the street is that its dumping in the hills! Looks like over a foot above 3,000 ft by tomorrow morning. Snowing all the way down to 1,200 ft right now!

    Season starts tomorrow!

    I hit up Stowe Saturday morning. Posted a more detailed TR in that section of the forum. Check the video!

    I have reports of accumulating snow all the way down to 800ft in Jericho! It was a great start to the season!

    Oct 31st

    Started snowing sat. morning at around noon. Snow kept on coming all day and all evening up in Jay.
    3-4in at the base of Jay
    10-12in at the top.

    Great snow on the mountain. Colder condition helped a lot compare to the last snowfall. Not a lot of people on the mountain… Still to thin (IMO) to ride the Jet… but Vermonter and Northway were pretty sweet!

    Nice! I hit up Stowe again today. Very boney. Maybe an inch at the bottom and 4-6″ at the top. Much lighter than the last storm. Again, the top third was good. The rest was rock/grass boarding.

    Sounds like we should’ve gone to Jay.

    I hear they are starting up the snow guns tonight. Definitely bring a rock board that you don’t care about.

    hit up gondolier this morning. started hiking around 530 and got to the top of the gondola around 645. had to wait until just after 7 for it to be light enough to really see, kind of foggy up top. the top 2/3-3/4 was awesome and had great coverage. not pow, but soft enough that the riding was smooth and firm enough that you could just rip down the trail and get an edge in. the last part was mostly riding on grass with an inch of snow or so on top, but we rode all the way down to the car. it looks like with the slightly warmer temps and sun today the snow at the bottom is going to melt out, so get it while it’s still good.

    Had to be in Sherbrooke today… on the way back, i could see Orford, Owl’s Head and Jay Peak completely white from top to bottom… There is a good 1in of snow between Sherbrooke and Bromont all along the highway.

    Seems like we had more up north… So, if you’re thinking of midweek turns, Jay Peak would be the pick… apparently, it snowed all day monday as well…

    You don’t need a new one for such little snow… Maybe you should grab one of mine… Option Makinen 164 w/ bindings -180$ // Burton Malolo 162 w/ bindgins 250$

    How does that sound? Everything is in great condition… just needs to see snow once in a while!

    Conditions were crappy compare to last week’s unexpected 8-10in… Jay received snow thru the week… but it rained on friday… things were “interesting”… hard pack… very hard pack…

    Day 3 on the slopes of Jay this year already… first time to the summit… I’ve never ridden this much before the season’s stard and not done the Jet… it’s normally the first one i ride… and last one as well… Compare to a lot of places, i was able to ride top (very top) to the bottom of the Northway.

    Bottom part of Paradise Meadow (northway)
