People have asked how Jay can possibly report 50 inch base. It is not just Jay, but all resorts exaggerating. So I emailed Jay and got a response. Basically, they report the depth "on their snowmaking trails." So they ARE reporting a base depth, just happens to be on only a small portion of the mountain. With a 50 in reported base, a 20 inch average base depth (per onthesnow website, not the app) you do the math. Ridiculous.
