Jay Peak, midfeb or early march

Hi guys,

i know this winter has been , well crappy. So if anyone has been or live near jay Peak when would be a good time to go?
How is the snow as of today, decent coverage?

Which is a better week to go:
Week1 Feb 12,13,14,15
Week2 March 4,5,6,7

I dont want to drive 7 hrs for a possible risk of rainouts and such.

Is my winter mentality correct by choosing to be further away from spring?


Please help out, i have been starving for some good snow with NY mtns being like crap.

Of your two options, I like option 2. The later you wait into the season, the better the mountain has a chance to build a base. The days will be a little longer too. Check-out the meet section on the boards, here. The NorthEastern Meet is going to Jay.

Really hard to tell, especially with this season. I would say option two would be a better choice but you really never know. either way, i'm sure you'll make the best of it.

thanks for all the tips ! looks like march might be a better week.
Just a crappy winter overall.
Still nervous with the possible warm early spring and rain.
I will check out the NE snowboard meet thread, maybe i can get a deal with the nights i need.
