Comments CommentsGreat first day of my annual February trip to Jay Peak! All of the terrain was open save for a few of the steepest glades and part of Northwest Passage. The snow was mostly soft, light packed powder and the best that I've skied yet this season, though some ice on the steeper trails got exposed as the day went on. Northway and some of the other trails off of it like Lower Milk Run, Sweetheart, Angel's Wiggle had some of the best snow in my opinion. In the afternoon I took a run down 601 (formerly Powerline) and it was by far the worst run of the day -- a mess of ice, thin spots and rocks. Maybe it was better in the morning?

The mountain was quite crowded with it being both a powder day and a holiday weekend, with six to ten-minute lines at the main lifts in the morning. It was snowing for most of the day with a few pauses, and sun also came out a few times. Temperatures were in the low to mid teens and the wind got stronger as you went higher up the mountain -- the "Freezer" lift was definitely living up to its name today! As a result I did most of my runs off the Stateside lifts where it was less windy. No lifts were closed due to the wind fortunately.
