so no, i don't think it'd be a waste at all

|effectpaul||My friends where heading up there in a few weeks from now. I'm the begginer of the group with this being my 2nd season. I can do most basic stuff and they are advanced. Is a waste for a newer rider to make this 7 hour trip? Will I be holding them back to much or will they be bored? I dont want to get killed on any tree runs.|

i've found the locals there are pretty amenable to showing people around, so you shouldn't have much of a problem.
i'm PMing you one of the more well-known secrets.

I like most of the stuff off the flyer, I never spent much time on the other side... I used to come down under the chair, then duck right and enter a great set of glades, then come out at the bottom and traverse left again doing little side hits back to the flyer.
Jay's a really spread out hill, I'm sure you'll find lots for both of you to enjoy.

They're all blues and blacks, mostly. Depends on the coverage but check out Valhalla and Green Beret. If the Chutes are open go there, earlier the better after a snow. If they've been getting puked on hike out off the backside (there's a gate) to the lower peak. Don't follow the drainage, bank left. You'll have to hitch a ride back to the base. Not a big deal. Then there's a section off the north side, you have to duck a rope, there's a sweet little cliff band to launch off.
If there's no snow it's like any other place and you get stuck babysitting gf.

Jay Peak trails
I will be going up there NYE weekend, and wanted to know what are some of the better trails (blue for the gf and blacks for myself) along w/ which area has the best backcountry glades.
