We have been skiing at Jay for well over 20 years, and that tradition, sadly, must end. Since the beginning of the massive development service has been on the slide. Jay has turned from a quaint resort with fantastic skiing to a "big box store" with so-so skiing.
Check in to the Tram House lodge was a nightmare, with staff openly blaming patrons for the chaos and the madness. The 4pm GUARANTEED check in time turned out to be a general guideline, when we couldn't get into our room until well after 4pm. Many of the newly built facilities are quickly showing wear. It appears that growth is more important than maintenance.
As for the ski hills, what a farce. Management appears to be happy closing large areas of the hill during the week in an attempt to save the snow for the weekend crowd. We stayed in early February when at least half of the hill was closed due to wind, only to hike up to the top of the Bonaventure quad to feel not a breath of wind. This type of closure rarely is reported, as the hill will be open for the first hour of skiing so that they can officially report everything open on the website. Quite clearly something is amiss...
We have stayed slopeside for many years, but in the last few they have become completely run down.
I am quite certain this review will quickly become buried in the piles of people who will praise the indoor water park. Great facility, if you don't like skiing. But then again, it isn't a water park hill....
