 got snow ?              News from The Steep, Deep & Extreme International Big Mountain Slopes


Jackson Hole
The roar of snow machines can be heard throughout the town of Jackson, but here in Teton Village all is peaceful. The soft snow makes a slight swooshing sound beneath the skis and snowboards, and music resonates from the various eateries around the mountain, but that's about it. Of course, with the Telemark Festival today, who knows what will happen - things could get crazy! If you haven't tried to free your heels yet, take a chance now - rentals are still available at the Nordic Center.

Jay Peak
We finished up yesterday with partly sunny skies and that's pretty much where we’ll start off today. Temps will be in the low 30’s at the summit and low 40’s at the base with light winds. Sunday will be more or less the same temperature-wise (just a couple of degrees cooler) with flurries in the morning and then variably cloudy skies in the afternoon. In all, an excellent weekend in the works - what will be the first of several great Spring skiing/riding weekends here at Jay Peak. With all the snow we got in February and March, we plan to be skiing & riding ‘til at least the end of April. Conditions will probably be a bit firm in the morning but will soften as it warms up. Just about all of our beginner & intermediate terrain was groomed overnight so you can look forward to machine groomed granular this morning.
The 27th Annual George Syrovatka Downhill Race is scheduled for this weekend. Click through for all the details.

The Suzuki Auto Champion’s Cross Sugarloaf Open has brought together a field of more than 40 of the world’s top snowboard cross athletes. The top 32 from Friday’s time trials will compete head to head in their quest to take home more than $50,000 in cash and prizes on Saturday.
Saturday’s event will send four competitors at a time down a course designed by Olympic Gold Medalist Seth Wescott. The course was designed to be both challenging and different from what these riders see on the World Cup Circuit. “You spend as much time in the air as you do on the snow,” said competitor Kevin Leahy after the time trial.
To add a “twist” to the traditional snowboard cross competition, Wescott is requiring competitors to do a freestyle trick – a 360 – mid course. The addition of a freestyle trick not only adds a new element for the riders, it provides another facet of excitement for spectators and fans.
In addition to being a thrill ride for competitors, the course is also extremely spectator-friendly so fans can get up close and personal. Spectators can line the entire course and be just a few feet from the competition. “Fans will be amazed at how close they can be to the action,” said Bill Swain , Sugarloaf’s communication manager. “It will look like these guys are flying right over your head.”
The Champion’s Cross course begins on Lower Competition Hill to Peavy Cross Cut to Lower Narrow Gauge and is open to the public. Racing begins at 12 pm on Saturday. An awards ceremony and autograph session with select athletes will begin at 4:30 pm in front of the Base Lodge.
