Snowy morning.

It started snowing again right around 5:00 AM this morning and we picked-up a quick inch before things died down at 7:00 AM. The bigger news is the 6" we expect by Friday, which will be a nice addition to the 33" we've received so far this week.

We have picked up close to THREE FEET of new snow in the last week and the mountain's skiing and riding like mid-winter. If you haven't made the trip up yet, it's worth the drive. We'll be expanding our terrain offerings today to include beginner and novice trails with the opening of the Taxi quad and the Stateside moving carpet. With those lifts come trails for all ability levels.

NOTE: The Haynes will be closed to the public this afternoon to allow for race training. If you want those turns, get them in the morning.

ANOTHER NOTE: The Queen's Highway is now open so you can ski/ride from Stateside to Tramside. You just have to take a shuttle back to Stateside as Perry Merrill has yet to open.

The snowmakers made their way up to Montrealer yesterday and plan to be there through Thursday. After they've buried that trail, their focus will turn to connecting Stateside and Tramside. Stay tuned later in the week for more info on that.

The Jet triple, Taxi quad and Stateside moving carpet started spinning at 9:00 AM this morning and last chair is scheduled for 4:00 PM.

Looking to make some holiday turns? Ski and waterpark vacations start at just $225/night for a family of four. Details here.

Lift ticket and season pass info is available at both Stateside and Tramside Customer Service locations.

First Light

By Andrew, on Fri, Aug 16, 2013

Things are rarely black and white in a world of color. But contrast, often is a key to clarity in comparison. And that's exactly what this year's Jay Magazine dives into. Metaphors aside, change is happening. And as we look back at the old and introduce the new, we take you with us as much as you take us with you- in your opinions and perspectives and the sides you choose. Before it prints in a glossy glaze, take a first read through the editorial for our upcoming winter magazine.

Side, Side, Everywhere A Side
When you grow as quickly as we have these past several years, there are certain things that, often slowly, come into focus.   For one, there are always issues.  And issues have sides.  And perspectives.  There are believers/non-believers, early and late adopters, hammer droppers and brake pumpers.   And by definition, that’s what it takes to make something great.  Opinions.  Perspectives.  Sides.  But what separates us, the Jay Peak Collective, is also what connects us.  The belief that anything worth having, whether through preserving or changing it, is worth discussing.  Worth disagreeing on.  And worth, eventually, coming to terms with.  But for as much metaphoric bridge building that’s been done across these past years, we’ve also come across some truths that, if not universal, certainly orbit within the same system.  Including things like:

  • The pizza coming out of Mountain Dick's is infinitely more edible than the pitchy, roof shingles being served out of Pizza, Pizza, Pizza, regardless of how deliriously connected we were to the old shitty sign.
  • Tetanus shots have dropped off a bit since the old Hotel Jay (and the Marquis De Sade era beds) fell to the ground.
  • Having a spa, and with it the ability to rub out the bad and rub in the good, hasn’t banished us into a blazing pit of devils and agony as the Jay’er- Than- Thou oft-predicted.
  • We are certainly all defined by the areas we ski and ride, and the notion of having a waterpark open (while you hammer yourself in Deliverance) still makes you every bit the metaphorical tough guy you so badly want people to see.  See?  We see.

But still, in the darkest corner of our heart, we acknowledge that contrasts and opinions and sides are still our best, if not the easiest to swallow, medicine.  And that’s why we’ve dedicated the whole of this year’s Jay Magazine to varying perspectives on a multitude of issues.  Is the future dedicated to those taking up space there or the ones yet on their way?—make your own decision when you read about Bear and Alice and Andrew on pages 9 and 43-44.  Flip to page 34-35 and take sides on the age old Defense vs. Offense debate with Jeff Serowik and his Pro Ambitions Hockey Camps at Jay Peak.   See what our kid-critics Keaton and Maeve think about our new Disney/Burton Mountain Kids Adventure Center on pp18-19, and for a look at our brother’s keeper and the things happening just East of here, check out pp 32-33 and see where you stand on growth at Burke.  In between those, we give you plenty to read and plenty to talk about.

And you should certainly believe that, going forward, conversations about West Bowls, Bonnie Replacements and indoor climbing wall-movie theater mashups will help keep our conversations sided and undull.  And that suits us.  All we ask is that while you’re busy keeping your opinions known and open, you pay close attention to locking your mind into that same, upright, position.  It makes for a much easier flight and, at the end of it all, we’re all headed in the same direction- whatever side we’re on.
