jay peak , smuggs , or stowe

Hey me and a couple friends are driving up to Vermont next week end, we have been to jay peak and really liked the glades at jay and was wondering how smugglers notch and stowe are as far as trees go and how would you compare them? If they are equal in that aspect then please say why you would prefer either of them.

Can't say much for smuggs, but stowe's glades aren't nearly as enjoyable as Jay's. YOu have to be careful at stowe because there some out of nowhere 6-10 foot drops in the middle of what seem to be glade runs. Also, remember, Jay gets much more snow than the other two. Fresh snow makes the glades much much more enjoyable.

Newport is the closest real town but not too much for a nightlife. You are better off to just go to either the bar at the lodge hotel, or down to montgomery. The new Tower bar at the mountain seemes to do well some nights too.

I'm with the rest in saying that Jay has the best glades....they also have a good $99 per night, per person that includes lift ticket at the lodge.

though smuggs is a great mountain also, some really nice glades, and some great runs...but i dont know much about staying there.
