EDIT: Jay Peak is known for its glades. If you go there I would get a guide/lesson. I wouldn't do unfamiliar glades alone.
I was honestly thinking that about the glades. I'm sure it would be better for me to not be alone. But I did read they had beginner and intermediate level glades for folks like me just getting started out in the trees.

Staying in South Burlington. So it is about an even trip to all; Jay being about 30min further. Went last year and did Saturday/'Bush and Sunday/Stowe.

This will be, almost for certain, my only trip that far up in Vermont this season. So I am trying to get the most out of it hence the 2 resorts thing. Don't really have the time, or money, to get away like I would like to. I'm usually relegated to the southern VT resorts via bus trips.

Little background...this is my 4th year riding. I'm pretty solid on blacks though not truly bombing yet. Trying to work my way to double blacks this year. But otherwise have good control. Never ridden any glades but interested in trying.

I've been to Sugarbush before but at the time I was still only riding blues and greens. Never been to Jay Peak. I'll be riding alone that weekend as well.

So which would you suggest I try?
