Valentines has a good snow history. We have gotten 3-6' on a lot of valentines weekends over the years.

Comparing snowfall is very valid, comparing vertical drop to terrain grade/steepness or length of runs, not at all. If 3" of snowfalls in Vermont or 3" of snow falls in Colorado its still 3 inches. Making a correlation between types of snow is different.

Jay get a 30:1 ratio of snow:rain (30"snow : 1" rain) that's champaign super powder and the only reason why they get that is from the up-slopping; they get the most snow on the east coast. Its like how Sierra's get MEGA dumps of 700" a season, the storms from the west coast get pushed to higher and higher altitudes super cooling the storm and causing it to snow epic amounts.... but since jay doesn't have the Pacific they have the great lakes that they suck the moisture from and keep getting sent to higher altitude till it hits Jay which is one of the highest elevation (4,000ft) besides Mt Washington (in New Hampshire, 6,300ft)

Interestingly, I recall reading that most of the source of the "Jay Cloud" was actually the Atlantic...

Found it: The Jay Cloud: Fact or Fiction? | Vermont Sports Magazine

Otherwise, I totally agree with MPD I just started going there late last season, and I can't wait to hit it in prime conditions.

Default jay is magic

When Jay peak gets snow it is feak'n great! BUT it doesn't happen all the time, id say your best bet is end of feb or first week of march. 2 seasons ago first week of march 60+" in 2 days!!!! the trees were magic. Bring supplies and good base layers cuz it gets cold on top!

Any word on Jay Peak opening day? Didn't find anything on their website.

Also is it worth it to go early? Any glades? Any ideas?

I had a blast there last year, I live in Lowell, Ma. Never even seen real glades before going up there.. Almost killed myself on multiple occasions, but was awesome at the same time. Bringing the go pro with me this year.
