            Jay Peak during the last week of March was INCREDIBLE.  Conditions were winter fabulous and those who attended were pleasantly pleased.  Kudos to Mark Smith for putting together this incredible trip for all 18 of us.  There were 5 Highlife Ski Club members who were part of our pack and they were an incredibly friendly and cordial addition. Being on this trip taught us that there is something to be said for slopeside condos. The convenience of popping into and out of the units made for quick and easy lunches, siestas, bathroom breaks and even wardrobe changes into dry clothing.  This trip was inexpensive to start with (all things considered), but having access to your own food during the week made it even more so.

            Lessons, Lessons, Lessons!  The majority of us took lessons, which is extraordinary considering we had such mixed levels.  There were glade blasters on ski and boards as well as an individual who had never seen snow before.  Hey, if Olympic champions have coaches, trainers and teachers, it is evident that we all could use a little help from a qualified professional.  The resort was so empty that most of us had private lessons, and what wasn’t a lesson ended up being a mountain tour showing the best spots in the glades, some of which weren’t even on the map, and the softest snow on the mountain.  Not, of course, that soft snow was difficult to find.

            We got the fluffiest, softest snow ever at least 3 out of the 5 1/2 days with winter temperatures.  Only about a day and a half was “springy” when the snow got a little soft.  The views were dazzling and the runs inviting.  Jay is known for its trees.  There were learning wooded areas with only slight steepness with scattered, thin, bendable trees.  Most other glades were tight at the top which opened down below so it was possible to pick your point of entry based on your ability.  For those who like steep, the face of the mountain under the tram would have satisfied the most aggressive of the bunch.

            All in all, Jay was a huge success. Great people, wonderful mountain and fabulous conditions left us with hopes of returning soon.  Thanks again Mark, for all of your work.
