^^^^^I've went to jay a couple times last season and overall its a great mountain when theres snow, if theres no new snow, and its windy that place will be a skating rink. It's also insanely cold. I've had days there in the -15s and blowing 60 winds. The water park is pretty cool too, but it gets insanely crowded if your there a holiday or vacation. Basically jay is only great when you get pow and minimal winds which rarely happens in the east

I'd vote Stowe, with Jay coming in a close second. I live closer to Killington but prefer Stowe (or jay) - it has longer steeper runs and just feels like a bigger mountain.

I must have horseshoes up my ass then because every time I've been to jay we've had generally very good conditions. And yes the green mountain freezer gets cold but I don't have a vagina so it doesn't bother me!

When it is cold I head for the glades and work up some heat in there. Always had a great time at Jay!

I usually go to Blue Mountain, but also go to Big Boulder, Bear Creek, Camelback, Elk, Jack Frost, Shawnee. Just depends on where everyone else wants to go.

As much as I love a 2hr getaway to PA, their mountains cant be included in the East's best. Camelback a vertical of 800?! Im not hating tho, I got that $200 midweek pass lol

For the East's best, I would say stowe. Classic northeast/new england feel, but can be PRICEY. Jays Glades are second to none. The only better I can remember riding were in tahoe.

It truly is an unbeatable price. I'm torn between camel and windham's midweek pass. Windham's is 290 but pass holders get 50% off tickets to some good ass resorts
