Default Jay Peak?

I ride a small mountain in north Carolina, and have never been to a big resort aside from snowshoe, wv, which is still small. I had begun planning a trip to Jay, but have been reading that the roads are bad in a snow, the wind is terrible, and it often closes the lifts to the peak. I know the snow is good, and the glades are amazing, but I really would hate to get up there and not be able to access the top, or worse yet, the mountain.

My biggest attraction to Jay is the chutes and glades, I don't want to go to a big resort and just ride more groomers. I have looked at Okemo, killington, and others, but they don't have any chutes or as many glades.

I have no BC gear so I cannot head out to find the really good non-groomer lines, so I need another resort that has good non-groomer terrain that is not as risky as Jay, or some insight to whether or not jay is risky.

I know to find the best of this kind of terrain heading west would be the best choice, but if possible I'd like to find somewhere cheaper. Unless convinced other wise
