The last day of every ski & ride season is always bittersweet. Reminiscing of all the powder, laughter, and smile-filled days on the hill, while simultaneously getting ready for summer and what’s to come. Let’s face it, there’s a part of us already thinking about next season. Whether it’s daydreaming about new gear, new experiences, or even a new mountain to check out, the powder-junky in all of us is always at the ready. Click HERE to read more on the changing with our seasons.

That being said, thanks for joining us for a great season here in Northern Vermont. This marks the 154th consecutive day of operations here at Jay Peak, and the 9th year in a row we’ve kept the lifts spinning into May. Mother Nature delivered this year too, in the form of 491” of natural snow. That’s over FORTY FEET of fluff, re-affirming our title as the resort with the most snow on the East Coast. And that’s not even counting the man-made courtesy of Snowmaking.  We hope you enjoy a fun-filled summer, and when it’s time to dust off the skis or Skol to Ullr, we’ll be right there with you.

TRAM  UPDATE: The upgrade project is underway and the Tram is scheduled to re-open this summer. Stay tuned for video updates of the $5 million project throughout the spring.

Jay Peak And Berry Creek

Jay Peak Resort has recently partnered with Berry Creek Organic Farm in Westfield, VT. This latest addition joins the resort's growing list of employee benefits and perks, including reward and recognition programs, discount programs and the development of employee housing. The new partnership will create a closer connection between employees, local food and farmers.

Employees can pick up a voucher at Human Resources each month good for a $20 credit, to help offset weekly family food costs on a variety of fresh fruits, vegetables and dairy products.

Jay Peak General Manager Steve Wright is among those leading the push for the resort’s new employment benefit options. “We are part of something much bigger here, both to our employees and to our local community; this partnership is a perfect opportunity to help bolster and acknowledge both,” Wright said. “We’re happy to make this benefit available to our team and even happier we can source it locally from a great partner.”

Jay Peak Human Resources Specialist Ellen Howell is in charge of coordinating the partnership. “We are trying to reach as many employees as we possibly can, and are pushing for the vouchers to be used,” said Howell. “This program will serve as a wellness benefit, as well as proving to be a beneficial cost factor for everyone.”

Howell noted that with the potential success of the program, they are looking to get employees to have fresh food during the harvest season that Jay Peak can help subsidize.

Berry Creek Farm Owner Rosemary Croizet says that she is very excited to have more people buying local food. “It’s a good way to connect the community economically in a healthy way. Less money will be spent on middle markets, and people will get healthier food, making it a good situation for our community,” she said.

Jay Peak Administration Specialist Suzanne Kennison is thrilled about the new partnership. “They are a fantastic little farm, and to have Jay Peak giving out vouchers to employees that might not treat themselves to really good local organic produce is a really nice thing,” she said. “This program helps show people that we have this wonderful farm right down the road, because a lot of people have no clue that it’s right here.”
