JH has terrain for beginners, intermediates, experts and beyond. While most people focus on the expert terrain, this mountain has more green and blue slopes than most mountains. The ski school is fantansic with children. Our children learned to ski here. Only the crazies ski Corbett's Couloir but you have to see this slope. It can be viewed from the gondola or by skiing down the left side of Rendezvous Bowl. To look down the slope you will need to remove your skiis and lay down on the snow to look over the edge. One of our favorite trails is an ungrommed area called the Hobacks which is larger than most other ski areas in the USA. It is really a combination of three areas that are wide open. (Access is from Rendezvous trail)
Start your day on Apres Vous mountain. (Right side looking at mountain) This is great crusing terrain and we use it as a warm up. From here you can connect over to the mid-mountain restaurant and the triple chair. From the top of this you can keep moving over to the left (facing Mountain) or go to the bottom for the gondola or the tram. Caution -- the tram only serves expert terrain. Many people take a ride up and then ride it back down. Tip: there are two trams, figure out which one is going to serve you and get right near the gate early. When the door opens move right to a window on the front left corner. From here you'ss get the best view and you'll not be as crushed as those in the middle.
