Seems like a great year of snow already. Trails today were packed powder only a few open but still ahead of Wachusetts and the rest of the MA Ski and shred scene. But.... i found that the mountain is not best suited for beginners more of an intermediate mountain in early season no long gliding trails to learn on this early in. But overall for the advanced skier or snowboard Jiminy is the way to go. great mountain and good price for the day same terrain as the big boys for less of your hard earned.
