Jay Peak, Stowe and Sugarbush, early Feb

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

We passed through Jay Peak, Stowe and Sugarbush a week or so ago, and had a great time. Timing was reasonable as a foot+ storm topped up the slightly low bases with enough new cover to explore some of the more exciting terrain. I was incredibly impressed with Jay Peak - there's some amazing skiing here, and the new base area looks very tastefully done. The tree skiing certainly lives up to its reputation.

 

After Jay we moved on and stayed in the Stowe Inn for 2 nights, right in the village. There's plenty of nice places to eat and drink down there - it was very pleasant. Stowe and Sugarbush were also great fun - some very fine skiing at both. Another foot of snow and it would've been a great trip. I think that deficit has been fixed by now.

 

 

Lots of pics and report at:

Nice report and looks like a fun trip.  The inbounds is only the beginning at Jay.  I have spent entire days lapping the Jet and skiing the terrain to skier's right of Timbukto.

I remember when the Jet was the platterpull lift.  It was my first full year of skiing...damn that seemed steep!!  LOL

I looked out there but was by myself so didn't venture. I need to go back ... Timbukto was epic fun.
