Ascent Trip Report

There was around 2 feet of new snow and the downhill skiers had packed out the trail with their skis up to the ski trail. It was still tough breaking trail with all of the fresh powder snow. We broke out on the ski trails earlier than we expected and although we could see out to the valley below at that time, the winds picked up and there was a blizzard which made it difficult to see the rest of the way to the top of Jay. We stayed at the restaurant for lunch and then made our way to Big Jay. That trail was easier to follow and there were many skiers at the top of Big Jay ready to ski down.
