If you love deep powder and glades skiing, then you'll love Jay Peak. I was there over the 15-17th weekend in December, 07 and we got at least 24" of snow. The mountain was already 100% open before I got there and the conditions improved every day. Actually, by Monday, my legs were so tired, the powder was actually too deep for me to continue skiing for the whole day. That's right, I said it: there was too much powder!!! The ski-in, ski-out condos were great, too. I was 50 yards from the Tram(gondola). Rates are reasonable as well. There is little nightlife to speak of, so don't go if that's what you're looking for. Its a ski resort, and that's it.
