Word! Those days are long gone. Jay claims to have put 500 mill into improvements and they will get their $$$$$$$$$.

Ditch the girl and come up solo. 6 days at Jay for 1k is still pretty cheap IMO. IN the scheme of what I've spent on riding in my life it's one of the best deal I've ever come across. Be that at the old houses or the new condos. I honestly don't see the cost having increased all that much overall when I review the #'s.

Jay Peak is definitely not the old quiet place. Here is a quote taken from a well-read daily snow forecast (opensnow) from the Tahoe area.

"Last year Winter was only in the Pacific NW. This year it was there again and the Northeast thanks to a strong -AO -NAO combination. The highest snowfall I've seen is Jay Peak at 350" which is the same as Kirkwood ironically. Granted they have lot more cold and cloudy days so that snow sticks around longer. I'll take a 300 inch season here in Tahoe. Most areas don't see an 800 inch season and they don't get 300 days of sun."

The reason I stopped going to the Meet: Can't swing a Weds-Weds, houses were too crowded the second year, Jay is just a bit too sleepy of a town, and.....most of all, If i'm going to spend that travel time and that money, I'm going out West. Yeah, Carm's been pulling a little off the top since day one (but who can blame him. Tons of time and effort.....and the cookies were worth it!)

Why isn't MDP doing the meets on this forum anymore? I've been away, is there a link to catch me up on the drama?

In a nutshell, he was banned and all post history removed per his request. The meet will go on, and I'm sure someone in the group will will organize a thread here on the forum to let people know there is a meet. I'm pretty sure the dates are already set and some of the condos booked.

Anyone have ideas on a 2014 East Coast meet? Planning my budget for the season.

Thanks

PiKit has a thread on a meet he has put together....see 2014 East Coast Meet.

Also in that thread is some info on the "2014 Jay Meet". This is the meet that has got together the last several years. The count is around 40. I have no idea what the cutoff is, but there is always room to squeeze in more.

I don't think we can start a separate thread on the Jay meet because it involves a banned member and another site, but it seems the admins have graciously allowed some info to remain in that thread for SBF members who want to attend.
