Stowe or Jay Peak

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hey everyone,

 

Me and my girlfriend are planning a trip out to vermont next week. We're going from Friday to Thursday and we're season pass holders at killington so we're spending atleast 2 days there. I'd really prefer to just stay at one other mountain for the trip.

 

We're deciding between Stowe and Jay. Both of us are advanced skiiers, but at the same time we're not looking to go back country or tree skiing which I know Jay is really known for. We're really looking for some good challenging steeps and long trails! Which mountain would you reccommend? 

 

Thanks!

why no tree skiing?

 

stowe either way though. No run out, better snowmaking, more snow, and actually more tree skiing as well. 

 

Jay is sweet not a bad place at all but IMO is 4th in vermont for overall skiing after Stowe, MRG, and SMuggs.

Stowe for longer/challenging runs.  Despite what Josh says I say Jay is better for trees. He knows Stowe a lot better than I do.  I know Jay a lot better than he does.  No runout at Stowe but a walk if you go beyond the boundary.  Anyway for you and your girl are looking for - Stowe for sure.

Stowe fits your wants. Possibly Whiteface but not sure you want to make that drive from Kton, Stowe would be easier drive. MRG will give you challenge if you are looking for tough unending bump runs, keep lapping the single chair.

You can't go wrong at either place, but Stowe is a lot closer, and it so iconic and memorable.  Jay might have more snow though...

Not to throw a monkey in the wrench, but since you'll be at K-Ton, have you considered Sugarbush? It's just up the road and would suit your needs nicely.

Based on what you said,I'd say Jay is NOT for you guys. Sugarbush sounds perfect, and if you are there during a big storm you can drive 8 minutes down the road to Mad River Glen.

If it has to be between Jay and Stowe, go Stowe.
