    Go to Jay, looks like they are forecast to get a few more inches out of this storm than Stowe and you'll save about $40 on a lift ticket.

    I've seen similar pictures from Vermont ski resorts where they blow a lot of snow onto a very steep slope with minimal snow cover. Eventually the snow builds up enough that it can't support itself...
