Ski season is here! Jay Peak: tons of snow 2 hours from Montreal.

Yes, it's that time of year again: we got a lot of snow on Wednesday and many ski mountains are now open. Of all the mountains near Montreal, however, the one that always has the most snow is Jay Peak, in Vermont, just over the US-Canada border.

And today's New York Times travel section has a great story on where to sleep, eat and play at Jay so you can pack your skis and go!

As the Times says, "Jay averages 355 inches of snow, one of the biggest snowfalls in the East, and it blankets some of the most extensive glades skiing in the region, drawing serious skiers with its challenging chutes and very generous outbound policy. And with little in the way of night life or amenities, Jay isn’t the place to come for pampering or dance parties, but no one minds — there’s too much snow to play in."
