(This picture is not from this weekend, but it surely looks like this right now anyway). The bright, spacious townhouse seems very comfortable, and is pretty typical of several others I've been in at Jay. Very nice, but really it's all about the snow at Jay, so I'd say its slope-side location is the big thing about this house. (By the way, this townhouse is for rent and it looks like they might even throw in some lift tickets).
Wow - it even has a sauna:
Jay Peak gets the largest annual snowfall of any ski area in Eastern North American with an average of 355 inches snowfall. (During the 2007-08 season Jay Peak got 419 inches). Why does Jay get more than anywhere else in the East? I think it's because of the legendary Jay Cloud. I've seen it many times before, and I'm happy to report that the Jay Cloud is still alive and well; in fact I saw it yesterday. When that 2 ft.+ snowfall had stopped and the sun was shining brightly all around the area, I got a good look at Jay from a distance, and there it was...that distinctive big white-grey cloud still hovering over just Jay Peak (and no doubt still dumping)! Like Jay Peak, today's ski house is all about the snow...and is under the Jay Cloud.
