I had a great time. I came back Saturday.
BTW, the Verizon antenna is at the top of the tram.
It was 70 degrees last Monday. People in shorts and t shirts. I haven't experienced that kind of weather since Squaw a long time ago. Tuesday rained all day but then got 3-5 inches of snow overnight for Wednesday. Went to Stowe that day had a blast there too. Rode Jay Thursday and Friday and beautiful bluebird days. What a great way to end the season. Great beers and the first time I had poutine. Yum.
We stayed at a vrbo rental in 'downtown' Troy. Just 10 mins from Jay and an hour from Stowe. I've never been this far up north in VT. I've never seen sooo many cows and horses driving from our place to Jay, Stowe and Newport. Lots of farms that supply milk to Cabot and Stonyfield Milk. Even went to Couture's Maple Shop and Bed & Breakfast. They supply syrup to Jackson Hole Burgers, New York: 7 oz Burger Restaurants and Catering Services offer Burgers, Mexican dishes, Salads and Sandwiches and some other restaurants in NYC. Bought some organic grassfed Porterhouse steaks, rib eyes and gallons of syrup to give away.

|Bertieman||Good looks on the cheap lodge. I'm going up alone, might snag one of the nice rooms at the mountain. And I can only imagine the cell phone service blows up there hah|

|Simon Birch||Forgot to mention, my phone service (sprint) didn't work there since I don't have international calling set up on it. So that may or may not be a problem for you since you have to use Canadian cell towers in that area.|

|Simon Birch||If your going with someone else or a few more, look into their stay + ski packages. For two adults they put us in the Golf & Mountain Cottages for two nights plus 3 day lift tickets for both of us for $179 a night (that doesn't include tax and a resort fee, and this is good for up to four adults). Might be cheaper during the week, but the cottage was great. It consisted of three floors, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, it was very clean, three floors, wide screen tv, cable, fire place, full kitchen, etc. You figure if you just bought lift tickets online from them discounted it would be around $160 alone.|

I went to okemo last weekend. It was 100% slush, but may have changed. I will not be going there next weekend.
Real talk guys - Where is good for april 20th and 21st (next week)?
Jay peak says they have 78/76 trails open LOL how is that even possible? I'm considering sunday river because monday is free to everyone, but Jay peak is closer. I don't know...I live so far away from everywhere! Someone please fill me in!
