    Yup and Burke too. 

    So I hear. A buddy of mine used to rent a house close to Jay but has since changed location to Burke area. I assume there are less winds holds at Burke compared to Jay but I hear they don’t get as much snow?  And yes, I am fully aware of Jays snow reporting!

    I really want to get there. It's one of the few real mid sized mountains with a good rep I haven't been to yet. Everyone raves about it once the snowpack gets deep and the glades are open season. 

    It definitely a great mountain when the snow is flying. Also never have to worry about wind holds like many other mountains. My suggestion is to get there on a mid week powder day. Smaller crowds which preserves the powder!  That is if your into that type of thing.  No frills laid back vibe.

    I don't know really about how much will be left at magic, haven't been in a few years, untracked is hard to come in the east by if you aren't first chair or during the storm.  Uphill capacity vs. amount of terrain means it will be less beaten up than most places though.  Mt. Snow has an entire pod of expert runs on their North face, plenty to keep you busy for a day trip.

    Was at Magic today and it was all time. However with that came the biggest non weekend crowd I have ever seen there.  I assume the same crowd tomorrow. Life line was probably 20 min wait at peak. Where you go enjoy it. Sooooo much snow!

    Mitch said it was deform band fluffy... reminds me of like Pete/MRG back in the October 2011 storm.  Like 30" of feathers despite it being October. 

    If its paste then no, that's not that fun or easy to ski.  Paste at that amount is great for knee injuries, ha.

    Got up to Magic last night. It is definitely fluff. I’m shak Ng from the anticipation!

    Anyone here tried Counterweight's Headway? Hear good things and found a 4 pack this morning.

    Headway is good stuff if you ask me. A very solid IPA, differs from say a Treehouse or Trillium IPA. He was the head brewer at NEBCO so he has made some great beers in the past and no reason to think that will change.

     


  6. I will be heading to Magic. They are not open today and are opening tomorrow for POW day! Tix online are are like $51. Old fix grip lifts that's are sheltered.  Old school vibe and great terrain if you into that type of thing. Enjoy wherever you go!

    BTV4 is pretty nice looking...even taking the customary 33% reduction on the QPF levels.  Its got near constant upslope flow for its entire run cycle starting tonight.

    This is through midday Saturday.  I've noticed the models are showing a more unblocked flow with precipitation spreading quite a bit downwind of the Spine.  It really smokes the RT 100 corridor, which should be interesting to see if we can get anything decent out of this.

    I'm trying to learn and understand more about how upslope snows work. So with that in mind, does your last statement mean that unblocked flow can amount to less snow in the higher elevations and spill more into the valley? Oh and how and where can you determine blocked vs. unblocked flow on a model? Thanks for any help. 


  8. Jay was fantastic today. Snow was still hammering when I left at 3 to drive home. Been along time since I can remember it being that deep in the wood during December. Crowds were not to bad at all either. Which was probably due to all the lifts spinning, that was a nice surprise!


  9. Goniff was awesome. I'd really like to ski Magic with someone who knows it inside out. We were having a blast, but we suspected that we were just scratching the surface of what the mountain has to offer.

    The work days that have done thinning the trees over the past few years have really opened up so many great sections.
