First time at JF, skied the last day they were open on March 11, Snow conditons were great in the morning. I like the way they split the terrain with Greens abd Blues on the West side and the more advanced terrain on the East Mountain. It was also the first resort I have been to that you start at the top of the mountain, ending your day with a lift ride. About the lifts, they are slow and older, with a lot of double chairs. Thankfully it ws not busy and we never waited in a line for the lift. Overall a good value especially if you are a boarder, they have a nice terrain park here, and also included in the lift ticket is Big Boulder which is 75% park terrain. I preferred JF and would pass on BB being a skier. Seems like a great mountain if you are a beginner with a good bit of easier terrrain. Really liked the lightning and river shot combo of trails. Did not stay ofr any nightlife, did not rate.
