going to Jay Peak ... looking for tips
Heading to Jay Peak in mid-March with a few buddies (all strong enough riders, a couple have been there before)
Looking for some tips as far as where to ride, maybe someone could private message me about a few of their secret stashes? Don't worry this will be the only time I go to Jay and won't give out your secrets. And to put it fairly bluntly, we need a hook up in the area since we're coming from across the border.
Would be happy to exchange the favor in QC or BC if anyone comes up here.

That's too bad, looks like you might have to settle for some bath salts.

There are several trails that are off map but it would be really hard to describe where they are. A good testing point for conditions will be the "beaver pond" glade..take the flyer up and go right. see what its like in there.

good luck hopefully its still good up there:dunno:

Why wouldn't we be able to get into the glades? Is the snow pack that poor now?
Send me a PM to describe one or two spots... I'm sure it won't be too hard to find... there are only a few hundred acres and I'm used to riding big areas (like 10+ times bigger)

I was at Jay last weekend. Saturday was cooler (-3C) and conditions were quite nice. Things got scraped down to ice on the busier runs late in the day, but that's kind of expected. The glades were good, the bumps were very icy on the downhill side on sunny runs. The sunny top half of Can-Am was not fun, but the moguls thru the more shaded bottom half were great.

Sunday was very different: +10C. Very soft. Not spring corn yet, just good snowball making stuff. The glades were still good because of the shade, but slush patches showed up around noon on the sunny runs. The boiler plate ice appeared earlier (1pm) as well. Some small grass patches started to appear between moguls.

I can't imagine a week of warm weather has improved things, but the glades are probably your best bet because of the shade and will probably offer the best conditions. Make sure you get there for first chair and maybe skip lunch.

Bring on the sun and heat! The more the better!!! Hopefully Friday's rain doesn't freeze up overnight too much... the forecast looks good for Saturday, and hopefully it heats up even more throughout the day so that the afternoon turns are sweet.
This will be my first time riding in the US on a weekend so I'm expecting those legendary crowds :laugh:
In all seriousness though, I'm f*ckin' stoked to check out this place! :):thumbsup:
