The day started at Jay Pass with subzero temperatures and howling winds. The steep climb up to Jay Peak helped us to warm up fairly quickly. After brief break in the tramway building we all climbed up to the summit where we were practically knocked over by the wind. The trip to Big Jay was mostly sheltered from the elements making for a very pleasant snowshoe trip along the ridge. It was a cold but fun winter day in the mountains.
