I was at Jay last weekend. Saturday was cooler (-3C) and conditions were quite nice. Things got scraped down to ice on the busier runs late in the day, but that's kind of expected. The glades were good, the bumps were very icy on the downhill side on sunny runs. The sunny top half of Can-Am was not fun, but the moguls thru the more shaded bottom half were great.

Sunday was very different: +10C. Very soft. Not spring corn yet, just good snowball making stuff. The glades were still good because of the shade, but slush patches showed up around noon on the sunny runs. The boiler plate ice appeared earlier (1pm) as well. Some small grass patches started to appear between moguls.

I can't imagine a week of warm weather has improved things, but the glades are probably your best bet because of the shade and will probably offer the best conditions. Make sure you get there for first chair and maybe skip lunch.
