Great conditions right now with soft snow across the area. Most everything is open, however the steeper trails do have dirt patches and rocks showing. The cruisers are very well covered though and even the glades are pretty nice. Snow showers at the top allude to the snow storm coming Thursday, which should fill in the dirt spots. Overall great day and there should be plenty more to come.

With temps pushing 60 not a banner day for conditions. By 130 many trails on spruce were slush and too slow, ones on far right and left should have been closed due to so much exposed terrain. Mansfield was good including Moguls but you had to ski the shade by noon. Kudos to Vail resorts for having most trails and lifts open, didn't see a blue off limits.

Been skiing mount snow for 35 years and this past weekend was by far the best visit yet. 86 of 88 trails were in pristine condition. My son and I spent most of our time disputing which run was the best. He claimed “Olympic” I argued “Plummet” We finally agreed they were all great! Kudos to the crew at Mount Snow.

Once again spring conditions today with nice soft snow and no crowds. The mogals were nice and soft today along with most of the glades with the exception of Black Hole. Some patches of dirt in some high traffic and non groomed runs but overall a great day. With over a foot of snow for Thursday, now is the time to get here!

My daughter (11) and I had a blast. The conditions were incredible. The mountain was 100% open and every trail we went on was in perfect shape. I can’t wait to get back up there next weekend

Great conditions out there today with everything open. Soft snow towards the bottom with firmer stuff up top. Very little ice, even the glades were pretty good with soft snow and plenty of coverage. Crowds died down around noon and it was empty by two in the afternoon.

Great day with a lot of fresh snow most of the day. Winds really picked up in the afternoon and iced it up just a bit. They are expecting 90MPH winds at the summit tonight so tomorrow may be icy.

Best powder days I’ve had at jay and I’ve had many. What an epic weekend. Knee deep stashes everywhere. There was so much pow I’ve found lines and glades I didn’t even know existed yet. Flyer and tram were closed on Saturday but you could hike a bit to hit that side. Jay is the BEST

Smuggs never disappoints. We skied all day on Sunday Feb 9, 30+" new snow in past few days, very cold, no wind, no crowds! Both Madonna and Sterling peaks were in top shape. Friendly skiers ad boarders and great lifties. Tough to pick a favorite run: Upper FIS, Chilcoot, Rumrunner, Black Snake and Practice Slope.

Skied Mt Ellen on Sat 2/1 because we figured the rest of Sugarbush would be crowded. Had plenty of company but not too crowded and really great snow to play in. Sugarbush/Mt Ellen has the best groomers and snow making in New England, seriously! Mother nature gives SB a decent base and they know how to make it better. We enjoyed soft turns and no hard pack all day, especially appreciated after going the next day over to Loon in NH where it was noisy hard pack on every run.

Spent day at Killington. No new snow in about a week, but trail conditions were pretty good. By 2pm trails were pretty scraped off to the sides with ice and hard pack down the middle. A few trails were too thinly covered for my taste. Clouds made it very difficult to pick up slope contours near the top (not their fault). Bear Mt. lift wasn’t spinning which created lines. Summit Gondola broke down so that sucked for a little while.

We were pleasantly surprised at the great conditions today, plenty of snow cover, no ice, most of our favorite trails to choose from. Murphy's Glade was as good as it's ever been as was Lynx North, although Spring Fling was a bit hidden under those major whales of stored man-made snow which will no doubt be groomed away for the weekend. We were happy to take a Friday off and best the weekend crowds. Maybe Saturday is a good day to ski Glen Ellen instead.

Skied 12/20-12/21. Only left side of mountain was open. Bad news: goats run and angel's wiggle are an ice fest full of jerries so enjoy getting to connecting trails safely. Good news: powder is there if you know where to look. Timbuktu was sick on 12/20. The trees seemed to protect the snow from getting rained on last week and it was pristine. There's plenty of little jumps in the forest with clean runouts still too. Lift line on 12/21 was sick with lots of little bumps and rocks to air it off of and soft landings. Exhibition has an icy and sketchy entrance but once you get a quarter way in, the snow is all powder. Do not recommend jumping off the first largest cliff band straight; the landing is super flat and not filled in well. Second cliff band is perfect though. All the glades in general were pretty soft. When they open the flyer tomorrow, don't hesitate, and go straight to JFK and the woods off JFK and off Ullrs Run. The woods will be very deep, probably more so by JFK as those tend to catch windblown snow very well and they haven't been open all year yet.
