Need Help Quickly about Jay Peak, Vt

me and my friend are going to Jay on monday and we need some advice....First off where would you recommend we stay. im looking for a condo like place that offers ski in and ski out if possible. we are only going to be there for 2 nights so luxury is nice but not necessary. i know they have 4 different areas to stay at but i cant seem to find reviews on individual places (hotel jay, mountainside, slopeside, and the luxury village). i noticed that some of the packages offer a deluxe version where u get a complementary 1/2 day pass and complementary breakfast a dinner. taking advantage of this would be sweet. i herd that hotel jay is old and nothing special. this could work but im trying to be able to ski in and out so there is no need to drive to the mtn.

Second is there any specific place on the mountain that you would recommend us to spend most of our time at. this is our first time going there so i dont know what to expect. i have been hearing crazy reviews about this mountain, which is why we are traveling there. i have been boarding for almost 10 yrs now and my buddy has been for 3yrs. i know i could do just about the hole mtn (so i think) but he is not to familiar with tree boarding, and we are both unfamiliar with deep powder. we are from north east Pa and we are use to icy granular or at the most 6" off the good stuff. i know i am looking for the deep stuff. my goal in life is to go boarding in knee to waist deep powder and i believe this mtn will deff deliver. i am a huge fan of back country...i try to do as much of non slope riding as possible and i would like to get my friend to try it out. i hear that there is all different levels of glades at this mtn. can somebody fill me in on which ones we should start out on to get use to jay.

Third what is there there to do after the mountain closes. im not much of a drinker but i do love to party, meet new people, and just have an all around great time. im 25 and they are 22 so we are legal to go to a bar. i now Montreal is not that far so we were think of taking a ride out to see what they have to offer (and yes we do both have pass ports). also i am huge fan of the green sticky icky, so are they pretty leanuant in or around the mountain. i sure as hell hope so cuz that my favorite pass time.

Fourth if there is going to be any one up there mon march 2nd through wed march 3rd and r interested in showing us the mountain or just to party afterwards let me know.

first - never stayed in any of the ski in ski out condos there so i cant help you but they are going to be the most expensive places to stay around. the snowline lodge is right down the street and its $100 a night, prolly the cheapest around and its not bad really. its only a place to sleep.

2nd - the glades. timbuktu, ugly tree and my favorite beaver pond. jay is known for their trees. conditions right now arent the best but should be getting better. heavy rain friday fucked everything up so no go on waist deep powder

3rd- there is no night life. you want night life go to killington. you are pretty much going to be stuck at the mountain bar if you want to party.

4th - check out the east coast meet thread in the meets section. you will catch about 10 people up there from this forum.
