    Tried to skin up Stowe Saturday am for "exercise" and couldn't get halfway up Gondolier, skins were slipping so bad. Truly heinous conditions that morning, after a week of being a sport abut it.

    Beautiful sunset though and more edgeable conditions at Bolton this eve though. Definitely a mood turner. After being patient with all the best-time-ever'ing going on out west, it'll be fun to have some soft surfaces again.

    Definitely treacherous on the skin track at the local bump. Fortunately the groomed downhill terrain wasn’t as bad as anticipated. Seems like there is enough base for the grooming crew to grind and work with.

    The ungroomed terrain however is frightening...

    I don’t think this next storm is going to be enough to “bury the crust”. And it’s already looking like a major dud....

    Vibes to the family. Talked to a patroller yesterday afternoon at our kids BX race who hinted it had already been a "horrible day" with several serious incidents. After walking the dogs up one of the trails Saturday morning (wind hold on all lifts but lower mtn) I decided it wasn't worth burning a voucher to ride chopped ice Sunday.

    SKIER KILLED IN CRASH AT VERMONT’S JAY PEAK

    FEBRUARY 11, 2019

    0 COMMENTS

    A skier was killed Sunday afternoon after crashing into trees at Vermont’s Jay Peak Resort.
    According to Vermont State Police, Bruce Charron, 68, of West Montreal, Quebec, reportedly lost a ski before losing control and striking several trees along the edge of the trail at roughly 12:45 p.m.
    Jay Peak Ski Patrol were able to quickly respond to the incident. But police say Charron was later pronounced dead at the resort.
    Police say the incident is still under investigation.

    That's brutal news., poor guy. Snow was definitely dangerously fast this weekend.

    Note to self. 10mg caramel, swish, then stupid strong margaritas are not in jackstraws best interest if he plans to ski the next day.

    Have a nice day all.

    That is a bummer up at Jay. Vibes to the family. I got blown off the trail and into th woods when I was changing over Saturday and sliding blind into trees was terrifying. Very relieved I bumped into something within a few feet.

    So so tempting. But valentines-day-eve plans in Boston at 7 and burning 2 days of PTO last week for the annual family ski trip mean I'm 95% sure I can't do it. Still day dreaming about the tour there 2 weeks ago though... Have fun.

    Very sad indeed. Bruce was a good friend of my brother's, and a long-time Jay Peak regular, his family has a house near Montgomery. A very good skier and one of the colourful instigators of the annual Stateside tailgate party. Leaves behind a wife and three adult children. Here he is in happier times, getting ready to grill up some meat:

    So sorry. Horrible. RIP

    It really bums me out to hear he lost a ski first.

    Thanks ML and Jackstraw, will pass along the condolences. He was part of a posse of several families that skis together most weekends. They are hard to keep up with in the trees.

    Vibes to the Jay Pk community, that's a tough one.

    The Loaf was fucking cold, windy and liftless most of this past weekend. But we hosted our first annual Fire On the Mountain festival and everyone who came had a blast and didn't give a shit about the lack of skiing. We had 7 Dead bands from around New England that played Friday Apres' thru Sunday Apres' with two venues rocking a sold out crowd of around 1400 heads. Total dance party
