    TR: 2/21/13 The day we wait all season for

    A strong upslope system moved into Northern VT the past couple of days. Tree well dweller, non mag buddy, and myself woke up yesterday looking to see where the most fell. It was clearly Jay Peak area upon inspection of photos. We throw our gear in the truck and head up for the unknown. As we drive further North the snow started to pile up and cars were completely buried we knew we were in for a good day. Although we had no idea how good, until we took the first turns. It was a walk right on the lift kind of day and we lucked out by catching every lift opening as they happened.

    It was the most consistently deep day we have had in VT in recent memory.


    Non mag Rhine getting buried on his first run in 3 feet of jay blower












    Treewelldweller tries to suffocate himself








    Met up with a local film company "Mad Trees" and took some shots on a lap in bounds with them






    After many laps in bounds skiing untracked every run, We decided to head out from the resort to Big Jay

    We ended up being the first group out and had to break waist deep trail, thanks to rhine and TWD.



    Which was well worth the effort







































    It snowed more last night and more coming this weekend, but for the first time I have no anxiety about getting out to ski it.

    Seeing that from my office makes me want to cry. On another note- if anyone wants to do a Big Jay lap this weekend, send me a PM. Hopefully the goods will still there.

    over-the-head blower all day, and we didn't even have to leave the state. all morning i didn't think it could get any better... and then untracked on big jay to top it off. the kind of day pow dreams are made of. definitely worth a little frostbite here and there...

    Great shots, bummed I missed that day.

    Mad Trees is a good crew to know, always a fun time riding with them. Here's a quick edit they made from yesterday.

    I was supposed to head up there on wed but my buddy bailed saying " only if it's and epic day." He would not listen to reason. Asshole. He is up there now too. Glad you all got after it.
