Jay is a great place to ski., it has a Euro feeling to it., Lots of Canadians are sking there, It's only 1 hr 45 min. drive from Montreal & 4 hrs from Ottawa. I heard some pretty sad things about how the US border guards are making it hard for Canadians to enjoy Vermont & Jay Peak., a family was almost turned back as they had 2 undeclared clemintines in their van... Come on.. let's get real., the border guards should maybe look outside their doors., have a look around... It's very Backwoods Customs crossings... the Canadians are bringing $$ to Jay's doorstep & helping out the economy of Vermont., so go easy othewise they will turn the other way to Tremblant., by the way., Tremblant has much more snow than Jay... there was lots of rocks on the runs today., Jay should either close the run or cover the rocks up... I skied Vermonter., & it was a mess on my base.... the day was sunny & very cold., lots of people were out but the lines were non existant., 10 to 15 minute wait to load the tram., the tram was running at Half speed for some reason... real slow.. slow .. fall asleep slow... let's get it moving.... i was told by a lifty that it was running at Half speed !!1 The new Hotel Jay looks gigantic compared to the old Hotel Jay., it has a huge Waterpark attached., & under a glass ceiling dome., Lots of new things going on a Jay Peak., Big Bucks are being spent., for you to have a great time., skiing, golfing, hiking & water parking... boarding or whatever the kids do?? Go To Jay Peak., have fun, it's a great Resort in Northern Vermont., only a few miles south of the Canadian Border !!
