about jaypeak trails

ok well after finding a place to stay me and 3 friends booked out trip for end of feb to go to the peek for 4 days of riding. now for my question, 1 of the riders i am going with and 2 people that want to go as well arent that experienced and have no experience in fresh pow there used to mountaincreek/camleback which basically means shitty packed icy groomers. is there alot of nice groomers at peak as well something to where if the other people come and they cant handle the back country they still have alot to ride at a easier skill level?

Jay will give you everything you need/want. Plus, if they're used to the boilerplate and crowds of the Creek, they'll love love the thin crowds and the powder at Jay. The more difficult transition is going back to ice from powder!!!

Jay has been my favorite mountain for the last 8 seasons, since i first journeyed up there. The groomers are always soft, i've only had crusty corduroy a few times. of course you get the icy bare spots in the early and end of the season or after a while without a good storm. but after a few natural snows its unbelievable. As for back trail stuff, The mountain has all types, really dense, steep, and full of ledges up top, average density, with the ability to really run through them on either side of the mountain. And the always fun relaxed not dense at all which you can carve through on a good powder day and enjoy a nice cruise along side a groomer.

This thread makes me sad. Jay Peak is my favorite place in the east. I didn't make it up there last season, figuring. "there's always next year." Except there isn't...I'm still on crutches after surgery three weeks ago for boarding-related tendon and ankle injuries. I have another three weeks on crutches, then another month in the boot, then weeks of physical therapy. I'll be very lucky if I get in one day of late-spring riding. Hopefully Jay's far-north location and famous lake effect snow will draw their season out long enough for me to get some.

Where is the most convenient place to stay that is under 300 a night for riding @ Jay Peak?

I've stayed at the Snowline Lodge...cool little place. Old school ski lodge, nothing fancy, but you can park right in front of your room, and you're just a couple of minutes from the Stateside parking lot at Jay Peak. I think it was $99 a night last time we stayed, but that was a couple of years ago.
