After hearing some good things about Jay and the ample snow and glades I thought I'd give it a try. It was probably the worst Vermont ski weekend I have ever had. Even with 8 inches of fresh snow the wind was so brutal you couldn't find open trails that weren't bulletproof, and the gondola and high speed quad were both closed. Couple that with a temperature of -10 and you have a terrible experience. One would think that the lodge would be an easy place to enjoy the afternoon, but the Jay Peak lodge reminds me of a Gothic Cathedral. Heavy wooden doors, no ventilation, windows you can't see out of, a fake fireplace, and room for probably no more than 350 people. I much prefer Stowe and Smugglers Notch, both for skiing as well as apres ski and other parts of the overall ski weekend experience.
