I've been to Jay Peak several times and we're planning another trip for January. I think one thing that most of the reviews below are forgetting about is the skiing.
Jay is a great resort for beginner to ultra-advanced skiiers. The tram to the top runs regularly. The amount of powder that this mountain gets is ridiculous! We got over 12" over a single night (both years that we were there).
Alice's Kitchen has great food. It's well priced and the atmosphere is great. What we didn't realize is that the menu changes from pub fare on the weekends to a Mexican-inspired menu on the weekdays (don't go there on a Tuesday night expecting chicken wings!). Don't go there on the weekend expecting gourmet fish tacos.
Both of the townhouses that we stayed in were comfortable. The ability to ski right from our front porch onto the slopes was amazing (as was the case with the two-bedroom townhouse that we stayed in). Some of the accomodations were dated, but clean and comfortable.
Go here for peace. Go here for quiet. Bring your own food and go here for a low-cost ski adventure. Bring enough friends and go here for a party (but be respectful to others). Above all: go here for the powder!
