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!)
