I just spent three days at Jay Peak and it was great, it got into the 50's but the snow wasn't slushy at all.

Leaving for Jay on Sunday. Monday is supposed to hit 70 degrees!

I'll probably take a trip down to Stowe also. Not sure on the conditions but Jay is still posting 100% terrain open on their site. Tuesday is supposed to be raining all day then dropping to 20s at night.

I suggest going to Stowe. It's further up north so the conditions should be better than Killi.

Jay is weird. They'll say "Stay away it's terrible!" But then post they're 100% open. I've NEVER seen them 100% open. But that far north, it's probably your best bet. Lots of warm weather up here right now.

I was Jay a few years ago when they boasted being 100% open. It's where we came up with the term "How bad can it be?" We came across a ridge, I think it was upper Northway by Annie's Wiggle...you can't see over the drop in, so we went for it. The trail never should have been labeled open. It was bare dirt, grass and rocks. I love Jay Peak, but don't trust them. At least at Killington you KNOW they're lying.

new hampshire! we got tons of snow left, and no lines. we close up on the 20th. Cannon is 100% still, and Loon is damn close as well. Waterville closed due to lack of demand.

When I was there it was mainly a lot of British kids learning how to ski and a bunch of other ski classes. They mainly stayed on the greens, hardly anyone was on the blacks or blues. It was great. And it was in the 50's at the base but the top was a different story.

I'm off to Okemo tomorrow for the last hurrah. I'm sure it'll be more like surfing, but the tickets were cheap and the drive is under 2.5 hours. After that no mas until Dec.
