Jay Peak, VT Easter Weekend

Got my reservations for Jay Peak for Easter. I'm hoping they have the same conditions that they've had for the last couple of years, especially for pond skimming, but it's been a bad year so far. What's there to do there or near? Just in case there is no snow, don't really want to sit in a bar. Then again...

That's some of the best news I heard in a while.

I hate to bum you out, but I was at Owls Head on Saturday and Jay on Sunday and while it was sunny, warm and conditions were good on Saturday, by Sunday (even at Jay) were the worst I've ever boarded in. We did 3 runs looking for decent coverage then called it quits. They wouldn't refund our tickets or give us a pass valid for next season whcih surprised me. Their website says they have over 70 runs open, but to be honest, with all the hazards, thin coverage and water on the trails, many shoud have been closed. They apparently got 2" overnght, but that was after 2 days of rain which I'm sure would've screwed things up even more. 2" is not gonna save it. It's been a horrible March - one of the least snowy in history and it's a terrible end to the season. I hope you get a dump before you get there, but it's not looking good. I'd be looking at bringing a set of golf clubs with you just in case.
