    I'd say Jay is runner up. All but 3 trails open. Stowe is about 18 shy.

    OK let's switch this over for kicks which area has the most skiable acreage open in addition to % of open terrain
    I.e. Killington let's say has 500 skiable acres open but only 50% of open trails

    Ready for another summary?

    NSR, but have you been to Mount Bohemia? I've just watched a few YouTube videos and its looks insane for mid-west standards.

    Ski Conditions Report: A detailed report describing the snow conditions on the mountain the day of your visit. Skiers should become familiar with the following snow surface descriptions: Ice: Packed Powder, Slush: Packed Powder, Frozen Granular: Packed Powder , Packed Powder - A thin covering of snow over bare earth.

    A good friend of mine has been to Bohemia and he has also skied out west many times at lots of different places and he said that Bohemia is Insaine for even out west standards. Only thing is it is in the middle of no where.

    NSR- not subject related. I wanted to ask about Mount Bohemia since you live in Michigan and seemed to have visited alot of places.

    After our January 20-22 trips Nubs knob boyne mountain I have a personal trip to the UP plan for February 3-10 starting in Gaylord Michigan going to iron Mountain Michigan to ski Vulcan and perhaps Pine Mountain and they mount small but mighty ski Bruhl then on over to Ironwood Michigan to ski Indianhead and big Powderhorn with a free night yet to be had at whitecap Wisconsin and a ski the day there, and then up to Bohemia perhaps a day of powder skiing in on the powder cat cat skiing and then an afternoon at Mount Ripley and then down to Marquette Mountain and then back down over the bridge to ski the Otsego ski club with the minor Denver Lifes Lifes where the Tele car used to be I have to tell them to correct their sign so in all I hope the views my white gold ski card to bring the average cost down to about $15 per day or per outing

    Like I said there is still an open invitation to anyone who would like to join me for nights a free lodging and I will even pay for the other nights or you have to do is come to my home in the Grand Rapids area and I will do the rest just bring beer money

    Montana Snowbowl (Missoula) After 3 feet this week, 100% open, trees and all. 2 fixed grip doubles serving 1000 acres means good snow preservation.  It is a bit chilly now, though.

    I think MRG might be the first major VT/New England area to announce 100% open.  Dec. 25, 2017 - 45 of 45.

    They were 100% on Dec. 17....as predicted :)]

    This was intended to be a prediction thread, not an observation thread. Oh well, all good since there's snow!

    Just get out you woolies for the rest of the week....brrr.
