Who would've though!? After losing nearly all of its base due to the March heat wave, the Jay Cloud emerged once again! It dropped a foot of new snow on the mountain, albeit it was extremely dense, wet snow, and Hoff, Becca and I ventured up to the motherland for some shredder's delight. Although it was a struggle plowing through the concrete snow, it was definitely worth it, and definitely still POWDER! Although we got soaked it wasn't enough to keep the smiles from our faces, and yet again we thank you for your splendor Jay. Until next time, whenever that may be.

Today Hoff and I shredded on a total of three trails (the Flyer was closed for snowmaking), and said what we thought were our final goodbyes to our beloved Jay Peak. The unseasonable temperatures had brought the base down to 15 to 25" and we weren't very confident that we'd be able to get back to Jay before packing up our college years for good. Thankfully we were wrong.
