Little background...this is my 4th year riding. I'm pretty solid on blacks though not truly bombing yet. Trying to work my way to double blacks this year. But otherwise have good control. Never ridden any glades but interested in trying.
I've been to Sugarbush before but at the time I was still only riding blues and greens. Never been to Jay Peak. I'll be riding alone that weekend as well.
So which would you suggest I try?
At Sugarbush you'll want to go up Heavens Gate. Paradise trail is a favorite. And Castlerock lift if it's open. I don't know the Mt Ellen side that well but it looks to have more advanced trails as well.
EDIT: Jay Peak is known for its glades. If you go there I would get a guide/lesson. I wouldn't do unfamiliar glades alone.
