    Very close to the hill, very nice owners, charming place with a cool dog and great breakfast.

    http://snowshoevt.com If you like "rustic" bars, and would like to see what Jay was like prior to the EB5 boondoggle. Hell, the TV in my room actually worked last time I stayed there. WiFi, not so much, barely.

    Appreciate the suggestions. I've been at a loss for lodging around Jay ever since the inglenook closed. (Anyone remember that place?)

    Never puled the trigger, but saw some pretty good deals for the stateside lodge pop up now and then last year.Particularly if you can go midweek.

    My experience at Jay in January has never been good. If it falls in a thaw freeze time it won't be good. If you happen to hit it after a storm you may be alright but the glades and woods will be thinly covered. A mere foot (maybe two if you're lucky) of snow really isn't enough in my book. Better to wait until late February to March to give things time to fill in. The reason for that is their snowmaking and grooming is minimal. They rely on the Jay Cloud to do most of the work.

    As for the glades, I'd like to see a PB600 or an Impulse tower or Larchmont Z1 in there - they need to wait on natural. For all the covered trails, though, you've got a bit of a point (though recently they have upped their capacity).

    Pretty cheap, $35, but that was in the Spring, and probably at least 5 yrs ago. Give them a call, Pete is a cool guy, if he's still there. First time I was there they had Genny Cream Ale on tap, pretty funny, maybe to them it was an exotic. Like a little bit of home 400 miles away.
