About

Welcome to J&E productions, thanks for visiting!

J&E productions began in 1999, when the availability of digital video cameras and editing software finally alowed my wife and I to begin creating high-quality ski videos for friends and family.  Through the years we have continued to create ski videos, capture still photographs, and assemble online trip reports of our snow-related adventures throughout the U.S. and Canada.  Some of our articles include An Idaho Powder Paradise, featuring Brundage Mountain Resort in McCall, Idaho, Montana’s New Frontier, covering Moonlight Basin in Montana, and Kicking Horse: Skiing Adventure in the Canadian Rockies. We have also produced the online video for There’s No Place Like Home, a feature article about the Summit at Snoqualmie.  Many thanks go out to First Tracks!! Online Ski Magazine for their collaborative efforts.  Living in the snowy environment of Vermont’s Northern Green Mountains, we also report extensively on the local winter weather from our house in Waterbury and the higher elevations, and the snowfall data I collect in association with CoCoRaHS is updated on our web log and in the New England Forum at Americanwx.com.

  1. Hi guys-

    Great site. I’d like to link to this from our AdventureSkier.com site, as it’s a great resource for VT backcountry skiers. We’d greatly appreciate if you could list AdventureSkier.com on your site as well.

    Have we met?

    Thanks and let’s be in touch.

  2. Hi Jay,
    many tanks for your great page ! I’m from Germany, but since I’ll be in Vermont for Christmas, I’m thinking about doing some alpine ski-touring in the Stowe area after Christmas. According to your snowfall measurements there might already by enough snow. What’s your advice ? Would that be possible ?
    Many thanks and best regards from Gremany

    1. Hi Christian, there’s certainly the potential for some ski touring during the holidays in Northern Vermont, as long as the snowpack is at least average. In an average season, the snowpack at the Mt. Mansfield stake will be approaching the 3-foot mark around the holidays, which means that certain high elevation areas will have sufficient coverage. You can see a plot of the average snowpack depth and progress on the season at the following address:

      At that ~3 foot stage of snowpack, high elevation spots with good maintenance such as the Bolton Valley Backcountry Network will typically be options, and other well-maintained glades that don’t have extremely steep pitches will hold potential as well. Keep an eye on the plot at the link above, and hope we can get a good start to the snowpack that is above average. As usual, we’re all hoping for a snowy start to the season here in Vermont!

  3. Hi Jay,

    Are you ever open to allowing others to venture along with you on these short trips? I am local here in VT (BTV) and have seen you a few times hiking Bolton. Let me know.

    1. Hi Adam, no problems with others coming along, it’s just that between work, family, church, ski program, other obligations, weather, etc. it’s tough to plan trips ahead of time and I’m usually squeezing them into available windows on relatively short notice. I’ll send an email though so we can get in contact.
