Default jay peak or whiteface

Hi

I'm thinking about spending a few days at either whiteface or jay peak with a friend

I found some decent deals for lift tickets / hotels for whiteface, but jay peak seems a lot more expensive.

I went to jay in december, and i fell in love with that mountain. I rented a condo and the pre season rates where reasonable.

Is there any cheap but clean motels / hotels / condos not too far from jay ?? (i hate driving for long distances after a day on the mountain) ? i found a couple of bed and breakfasts with old wesites using google, but im sure there is better options !

I would also be interested in the powder/glades clinics they offer at jay

any suggestions appreciated.

martin

If you're going solely for riding and don't care about much beyond 9 am-4 PM, go Jay, Go Jay, Go Jay! If you are looking for riding AND activity afterwards, I suggest elsewhere...though I have a hard time pushing Whiteface. Been there 3 times and never loved it. Town is fun (though a tiny drive from the mountain) but the mountain blows/skis off right quickly. Apparently Ski Magazine calls them the #1 Resort in the East, but I'm not a fan. Can't help you with lodging, beyond VRBO, but if you get a hold of Mysticfalcon, he can help you out.

We are going for riding, not to get drunk or find love ! thanks for mentionning VRBO, I will book early for next season for sure ! When I went to jay, I really enjoyed going back to the condo, cooking a nice meal, having a few beers then going to bed. That is what im looking for. I live in montreal, so if we feel like partying and riding with dozens of poseurs everywhere, we just go to tremblant !

If you think this looks like fun then definitely Jay. Otherwise check out iceface.

What!? Carm, you've lost it! Jay gets comparable amounts of snow to some western resorts but it's still heavy eastern snow!

You haven't been out west Rob. You guys get low humidity snow on occasion. Out west it's the norm. No doubt jay is the best in the east for both terrain and snow. If it's between a western trip with week old snow And a Jay pow day, I'll pick the west every time.
