I go to Jiminy about three times a year. I try to go for their e-coupon days. I have always found the conditions OK to great and yes at times icy but this is MA!! I love the front diamond trails and find they are best for the first two hours they are open. I go here to ski not to socialize and I enjoy going during the week even though I have gone on a weekend and not found it terribly crowded. I usually bring my lunch and thermos and save on food. I have never had a bad day here and am looking forward to visiting again this year!
