The S.G. is not entirely sure what to make of the continuous deals pouring out from Jay Peak. Made me wonder where the mountain stands with their season snowfall totals.
That answer is 268 inches!
Are you serious? That is a lot of snow and New England still has a month and a half of primetime days, for snowstorms ahead. On second thought this does make sense, we have had a tremendous year to date.
Here are a couple of price breaks (deals) that you can take advantage of right now.
Alert: Jay Peak is bracing itself for some very good snowfall totals in the next 5 days. S.G. predicts 2 feet of fresh by Sunday for them.

The real question is what Jay gets for snowfall for the rest of this week and into the weekend. Thursday and Friday are shaping up to be the best days for skiing based on current forecasts.
Honestly the S.G. gets the feeling that this weekend looks like one of those when Jay Peak scores an extra foot of bonus snow on Friday/Saturday.
The Jay Cloud has been quiet this season. It is still only mid February. Things could get moving fast now. Stay tuned for Conditions.
