    One of the best east coast ski resorts. Great terrain, great snow, friendly staff, low crowds.

    The instructors are great! Took snowboarding lessons 2 days in a row and learned a lot! Bunny hill is consistently icy and slippery though!

    Go snowshoeing at the clubhouse! Take the Saturday night tour from 5-7pm through the woods and watch the fireworks after while sitting by the bonfire with a hot chocolate (or a glass of wine).

    Lots to do - skiing, ice skating, tram ride, indoor Waterpark etc. Restaurant service is consistently terrible. For quick meals, go to Howie's. For better (and cleaner) hotel rooms, Jay Hotel.

    Don't go to the Foundry for a late night drink. Service is non-existent, they took 10 minutes to clear a table and when we finally were seated we waited another 10+ minutes to get a drink.

    If you're looking to settle a bet, both trams are white. (The masts and lettering are blue or green)

    Valhalla has some sick glades, and Tuckerman's chute if you really want a challenge. Also the IPAs at Tower Bar are delicious

    New England skiing makes for icy, crusty snow. Compared to Colorado mountains, Jay is great but again, icy. Dress warmly!

    Likely to have the best snow in Vermont and some amazing glades to make use of it.

    Slopeside condos have pots pans salt & pepper and water and extra sheets. Bring extra towels cooking oil tin foil. Troy general store and gas is closest. Milk and margarine found there too.

    Verizon has great coverage. Tmobile barely and sometimes roaming. Slopeside condos are next to racoon run. Make sure its open or you will have to drive to main entrance

    Take the Tram for views from the top, super-expert terrain off the summit, to stay warm and just because it’s cool; but the Green Mountain Flier usually offers quicker access to all but the summit.

    On AT&T? You're close enough to the Canadian border to get a stronger signal from ROGERS instead of AT&T. Make sure you have roaming turned off, otherwise data is a whopping $15.36/MB.

    Jay Peak added nine holes in 2007 to bring its total to a full 18 holes. You’ll want to try out this course for many, many rounds to come.

    good times and head over to the Tramhaus after a long day of shredding, -- when it's icey though, the conditions for boarders are pretty bad. Despite that, the tree-lines made up for it.

    An average annual snowfall of 379 in makes true backcountry riding possible, and it will only take one run bombing through the trees to see why it's far superior to carving S's among the masses. Read more
