Featured Descent

Vermont » Jay Peak Area

Big Jay

It is a steep face with lots of big trees up top.  Down towards the bottom, there are some drainages and a lot of thicket that you will have to battle through.  Just remember that just because there are tracks, they are not necessarily going the right way.

Due to the illegal cutting of trees, there is a large scar that looks like it would be perfect to ski, but is off-limits to skiers.
