Jay is an excellent mountain, typically has the most snowfall of any Vermont resort, it’s also a very agressive mountain, got a real mean streak, if you like challenging terrain, Jay’s your mountain
other good mountains on the way to Jay;
Killington; good, but overrated, stands on it’s reputation
Sugarbush; good overall mountain, nice balance of runs, family to expert
and my personal favorite…
Mad River Glen, Classic New England skiing, mostly advanced to expert terrain, huge amounts of glades, mostly natural snow (limited snowmaking), one of the last remaining diesel-powered Single chairlifts in the US (it’s the original lift on MRG), a down homey style lodge, it feels like you’ve stepped back in time to a simpler time period, and most importantly…
NO SNOWBOARDERS ALLOWED!!!
snowboarding is banned on MRG, mainly because the owner a few years back, was skiing, and got rudely cut off by some snowboarders, so she decided to ban them from the mountain
it’s also the only skier owned mountain in existence, and anyone can buy shares in MRG, you get discounts on lift tickets if you’re an owner, every year, the shareholders vote on wheter to allow snowboarders on the mountain, every year the vote is the same, NO!
