Going Forward Together

So a pretty frantic couple of weeks are behind us, and we wanted to send out a few thoughts to help continue informing and clarifying those of us within the Raised Jay circle. We’ve tried to keep you looped in across our social channels and websites, through press conferences, media events and, in many cases, face-to-face meetings, but there are too many lines to read between within the context of a simple press release, and we owe you a lot more than that.
As of Wednesday's (4/27) media event at the mountain, and as a result of securing funds needed to operate indefinitely, it’s clear to those wide and far that Jay Peak is open for business and will continue to stay open for business. Given that we aren’t in the habit of giving you the business, we hope you’re with us here.
We have a ton of interesting things on the books this summer, including multiple music events (The 12th Annual August West Festival on August 13th, Strangefolk and Percy Hill on August 12th and 13th, The 3rd Annual Jeezum Crow Festival on July 23rd and 24th and Bruce Hornsby and The Noisemakers with Jackie Greene and his band opening on September 10th). Our Championship Golf Course opens for daily play on May 7th. One upside to this light winter is a course that will look and play better on this opening day than any prior – a good way to start our 10th anniversary season. We're heading into what will be the busiest summer in our history thanks to the waterpark, which will welcome both day and overnight guests all summer long, hockey camps and tournaments each weekend through Halloween, nearly 70 weddings from May 1st to Thanksgiving, a full Conference and Meeting schedule and among other events, the Vermont Craft Beer Relay Race that sort of has to be seen to be believed.
We have been working as hard as we can to get you as much information as possible so that you can follow along with us through the process. Whether it’s continuing to plan and enjoy your vacations, purchasing your pre-season rate Jay Peak Winter Season Passes (pricing extended through July 11th) or simply your small notes and votes of support and kindness these past few weeks, it’s all underlined the importance, for both myself and the staff, of what we all value in considering ourselves to be Raised Jay. Thank you so much for that.
All in- homeowners, season passholders, conference guests, brides-to-be, hockey players or vacationers, or even someone just tuning into the way of Jay, we’re thinking of you. We hope to see you on campus this summer and fall. Drop me a line if you’d like at firstname.lastname@example.org.
