Full review

I grew up riding in Vermont, and there is no doubt that Jay Peak gets the best snow in the area. It would have to be the closest to west conditions around. There are times when it can get very icy, especially on the groomers very quickly, but for tree riding and deep snow it is unbeatable. Be careful going out of bounds and ending up in Canada and the highway. The "Freezer" is one of the coldest lifts I have ever been on, but worth it when you bundle up. The face chutes when filled it will provide a challenge to all expert skiers and riders. Go explore Jay.
