Jay is a powder mountain. They have the mark, natural snow is what matters! I bet there will be people complaining if it dumps two feet as well. If you want to be pampered and have excellent grooming and snow making, go to Okemo. If you like powder, watch the forecasts and go to Jay, Jackson, or Steamboat
to all you people complaining about how bad jay is. do your honework. Jay is a monster mountain after good snowfall. which they get more than any mt on tge east coast. They never claimed to have great snowmaking. You all went up during the worst weekend of the year. deal with it. i was up there 3 weeks ago, they got 15 inches and I was up to my waist in deep powder. best skiing in years for me. you gotta hit jay at the right time. know that.
traveled 4 hours for lower mountian skiing?! 20 min. wait @lift for a one minute run is very disappointing. 2 lower lifts operating yesterday. went in for a bite to eat at alices table. with all the employees hanging around you'd think there would be good service. Nope. they dont know their menu or beer and even ammenities of the resort. appetizers served w/no plates- plates arrived 10 min later by different employee when asked, he probably didnt know where to find them. i think employees shuffle around to make themselves appear busy & not the nicest people. no one was smiling. maybe you should hire from the hospitality field not the farming fields. newer and clean appearance to all the restaurants though...back to skiing. if they had good snow making &grooming i'm sure we'd actually get to ski! Jay is sub par skiing. it was windy, so no summit for 2 days. hoping monday -upper mtn lifts will open. we should have gone to NH with newer fast lifts & snow making. Jay your missing the mark. we like the waterpark but we came to ski.
the bad thing about jay peak is their snow making and grooming operations are sub par and they rely on natural snowfall too much. other resorts hit with the recent warmth quickly got their trail count back up. not jay peak, though.
jay is so overrated. base is like 6".
they lie about snowfall. the waterark is the focus.
the snow making is a joke. they rely on lotta snowbut when thats not happening they got nothing.
except a waterpark which they focus on.
The Jay faithful on here have Stockholm syndrome. They've forgotten what its like to be treated kindly. I've never witnessed more disdain for customers than I've experienced at Jay. Here's the true conditions report. Base is 1 - 10". 80% of trails are closed. 3 of 9 lifts are spinning plus the magic carpet. Only blues and greens accessible from lifts with lines 20 minutes long. Only 300 vertical feet of skiing. Lifts stop every 30 seconds while the hard core "Jay Birds" pick themselves off the ramp.
"Seems as though Smugs still refuses to blow snow on Madonna and Sterling. Sooo, unfortunately I stayed on the overcrowded Morse mtn" sounds like someone can't ski and is using terrible excuses, despite the thaw then freeze, smuggs has been decent.
