Mnt jam has consistenly out performed any festival I have attended. The line up is always stellar(Rat dog and Dark star Ochestra last year), NIce late night scene with music in the lodge and in the camping area. The venue consists of mountain vistas and wooded camping areas, There is a beautiful waterfall that has quite envigorating swimming hole. No hassles from secuirty just watch out for the bears!(I like to think of them as the mountain's natural security team)
