Jay Peak VT

My buddies and I are planning a trip to Jay Peak next season. If anyone has been there any advice would be welcomed. First we are thinking about going in February. We are in contact with a person about renting an on-site lodge otherwise we are looking at private house rentals off-site. Really I am just looking for any info you can provide that might help me with this trip and maybe save some money. I have only been to Stratton and I am not familiar with this area. Thanks all

fyi..there is a meet event planned for Jay in late February. The history for the last couple events has been wiped, but there is some info and links to the prior events in the meets and events section. The plan is slopeside condos again as far as I know. There is a pretty big contingent from NY/NJ that attend.

As far as terrain is concerned, Jay blows Stratton away so you will not be disappointed there. Jay typically gets more snow, but you never know what you are going to get in New England planning a trip this far in advance. However, I will say, the meet has had very good luck with conditions in late Feb/early March over the last six events. MysticFalcon is the local expert on Jay and usually chimes in on the Jay threads. Given the dump they just got, he may still be boarding this late in the season.

One suggestion I can offer is that you need to bring a full complement of clothing. Heading to Jay in February takes you into the coldest time of the year. Be sure to take all the warm stuff you own. You may not need it, but there is a strong chance you will. On the other hand you might just get so excited about the slopes that you will never feel the cold. Great eastern mountain that you are going to love. Enjoy.

Get it. Wax it. Ride it.

I'm surprised I haven't replied to this thread yet.

Jay was the first BIG hill I went to back in the late 80's. Since then I've been for 4-5 trips there over the years.

Of course weather is always in question at ANY resort, but I've had good conditions on every trip to Jay. Even when some of the upper runs were iced up, there was powder to be found in the trees.

If the wind is blowing, the green mountain flyer gets COLD. Some of the glades are very well protected from the wind, so that's the place to go when it's cold.

I've had a great time every trip. It's a low key mountain, with good locals.
